Debbie - Love the use of Black and White. It really makes the piano pop! Jane #1623674

Thank you, Jane. I always liked this image but it was only after I had gotten home this afternoon from a photography lecture from an English photographer who specialized in black and white imagery. I played with a number of my colored images to see what worked and what didn't . I was happy to find that this one worked well as a black and white. His name is Steve Gosling from the UK. He has some very interesting images. #11330095
