FIRST - The pattern on the ceiling, the white on white, the lack of head on the conductor - it all made for a visually interesting picture. It drew us in and made us look for awhile. SECOND - Great angle, great body language.The “upside-downness” of the frame made it fun to look and and was befitting of the subject matter. THIRD - We liked the graphic quality of this photo and how the colors pull your eyes downward. Even the folds in the shirt add a nice detail. A slight crop on the left and top edges was suggested.
