Hi Jean
this has to be one of the more unusual scenes we've seen in a long long time. First of all, the black bg is the key, it sets the tone perfectly. love the 3 lights on the bottom and the hint of blue light on the floor panels on the left. the image is super sharp, the man on the left, his bald head is very sharp and in focus hahaha

Funny image, a nice artistic scene. Well taken.

Hello Jean,
charmy the view of the upside down saxophonist to play in harmony with the other one.The colourful spots and the created reflections make the image even more attractive.


Bonjour, cher Jean,
C'est amusant, curieux et un peu triste à la fois, quand l'on songe que certains ont peut-être fait le conservatoire supérieur de musique pour en arriver là !
Cela dit, j'aime beaucoup.

Witaj Jean!
A very interesting scene, makes impression.
Excellent frame, colors and sharpness.
Curious effect.
Very well done.
Nice day.

Hello Jean,
A very original photo. I have not seen musicians performing like this before. A well exposed photo with perfect sharpness in the darkness.
Kind regards,

Hi Jean

Fantastic graphism with the white spotlights illuminating the trio of musical contortionists on centre stage. The white clothing of the upside down saxophonist heightens and accentuates the graphic effect.

Ciao Jean, lovely and inusuale scene with musician, wonderful colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Jean,
Wow, that's quite an impressive trick they are performing there, playing their instruments and doing some acrobatic stuff at the same time. Very well captured with superb clarity and sharpness.

Bonjour Jean,

Tu as bien capturé l'action des musiciens. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des instruments de musique et de la physionomie des musiciens. La netteté est excellente. Bonne journée.


Bonjour Jean,

Quand je me dis que j'ai déjà tout vu je dois toujours me réviser. Une photo de spectacle pas facile à faire avec les changements d'éclairage.

Bonjour Jean
Bien que cela fait sourire, j'imagine la difficulté de jouer dans cette position :-)
bonne netteté et lumière au top
Bonne journée

Hello Jean,
Interesting picture from this concert, dangerous position to play music:)
I like perfect exposure and good color saturation.
Fine presentation.

to play an instrument is a difficult task but use an acrobatic effort mixed with it I suppose obligate body and mind to the limits of its capacity. a not usual shot.

take care


Hello Jean,
My, an excellent image in unfriendly light. Well done! 👍

Hello dear friend and have a nice time
and a happy new day
original version

Bonjour Jean

Il faut ouvrir la vignette, lire la note et bien regarder car ce n'est pas évident!! Il y en a quand même un qui ne sert que de support!

Hello Jean

quelle image jouer du saxo dans une telle position fantastique très original comme spectacle avec ces lumières et une très belle acrobatie sueprbe.
Bravo et amitié

Ciao Jean
una posizione alquanto....originale per un musicista, forse più adeguata per un ginnasta, ma la combinazione delle due cose è sicuramente spettacolare.
Gran bella foto.

Hello Jean,

Well, it took me a few moments of careful observation to see exactly what was happening here! You are right, it was a dangerous position from which to play music but it offered you the opportunity to get a photograph which is probably quite unique on TE!
The clear musicians, set against this very dark b/g makes an extremely attractive set. You did well to capture them so sharply.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)
