A long natural trumpet called "Nafir" is
occasionally used in Morocco as a signalling instrument in ceremonial music.. Its nearly three-meters!! a kind of "long single-note horn" made of copper.
Its especially used to awaken the faithful during Ramadan.(we have Ramadan drummers in Turkey instead, and our one is definitely noisier! :O).. )

What a unique but creative PoV! Pic is a bit grainy though but overall it's a great shot! Well done!

Really cool picture. Thanks for sharing it. I find the POV very interesting, and works very well for this photo.

Wow! This one is very elegant! Stylish and expertly done. Great photo! It is amazing how well the bokeh paints the quaint mood that you try to project here.

I have tried a couple of times to get a photo of trumpet players and have struggled, but you've done a great job here. The angle does a good job at showing the great length of the trumpet.

It's nice to have such picture in TE where the theme of Learning the World through Photography is adopted. It is a good introduction to the rest of the world.
Cool shot and cool angle.
Cheers and good day, Evren.

Love this kind of shot, Evren (I know how it is made now having tried a few:o)) You were so right to focus completely on the trumpet, plunging the fellow into darkish bokeh, but still visible.
Excellent work, yet again. Pro stuff really.

I like this sort of shot.
When the accessory becomes the principal subject of the photograph and tells the history.
