This has so much character and implied history to it. Colors, composition and layout all make it a classic. Nice eye, nice treatment, nice shot! #1146624

Congratulations on your wonderful POTD Christine. This image makes me feel both happy and little sad because I teach piano and it's sad to see a beautiful instrument in such bad shape, but also happy to think it still makes music. I guess everything has a limited life. I bet this piano has an interesting biography. Thanks for the story. #7716916

Love the angle of your capture, as well as the tonality and DOF. Lovely capture.

I was curious about the piano maker, Mehlin & Sons and Googled it. This is what came up.
