I do not like to make portraits, it's not my favorite kind of photos.
A few days ago, in Assisi, passing in front of a former church, I heard the sound of a harp, went in and saw this girl who was carrying out tests for a concert. I remained enchanted by the movement of his fingers and the sound of the instrument. Movement and sound I can not translate them into picture, see the girl and imagine the rest.

Well taken, good angle to take the musician, pity that sound and movement not with the view of your well made shot ...

Buona sera Silvio,
face expression of the harp player shown calm and content state-of-mind, concetrated on playing.
Fine sharp elements, the cords and bolts of the harp, and its fine woodwork.
maybe I'd crop the lower part with the wooden railing - to my humble opinion it doe's not contribute to the beautiful scene.

anche se non è il genere che preferisci, ti è riuscito molto bene.
Un bellissimo ritratto ambientato, con la ragazza seriamente impegnata e il suo splendido strumento.
Bella luce morbida che si addice perfettamente al soggetto.

Taking portraits, or just photos of people, give me much more satisfaction than empty streets or views of landscapes, however nice. You did this so well you must really try it again :-). It is a very good portrait of a slightly different kind from what we usually see on TE. The light and colours are bautiful and she is also a beautiful woman.

Ciao caro Silvio,
Portraits may not be your favorite genre, but here you demonstrate that you are a master portrait photographer. The attractive young harpist is seen concentrating on her instrument, and the only thing missing is a little background harp music from Boildieu in the background.

Ciao caro Silvio,
Yes, we don't see many portrait photographs from you, but this is a delightful one and you have concentrated your view on this pretty harpist extremely well with a closely cropped picture which is very pleasing indeed. Although it must have been quite dark inside this building, the light and colours are beautifully soft and the details and sharpness are excellent.
I really love the way that there is a strong connection between the eyes of the girl and her hands playing the strings.

Une jolie rencontre avec cette charmante harpiste dont j'aime le visage inspiré et concentré. J'aurais bien vu un recadrage sur le haut de ta photo. Je te le propose en WS.

Ciao Silvio, original shot in your gallery. Beautiful portrait of the musician. And the harp looks so romantic, the girl looks like modern Saint Cecilia. Marvelous shot, you should make such photos more often.

she seems very quiet and concentrated on her fingers movement, the only disturbing object is the sheet of paper and its support; if you crop the bottom and get a square format, it is less intrusive.

J'aime beaucoup ce portrait d'harpiste. Tu as bien su capter le mouvement délicat des doigts sur les cordes. J'aime sa concentration et son expression d'amour pour la musique.

malgrado questo non sia il tuo stile preferito, il ritratto che hai catturato e' incantevole. Mi piace molto l' espressione concentrata della musicista, la conessione fra il duo sguardo, le sue mani e l' arpa. Credo che questa connessione importante viene piu' esaltata dalla tua composizione e mi piace la diagonale solida, per questo preferisco la tua versione. La luce diffusa ed i colori dolci creano un' atmosfera deliziosa. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona serata,

I chose this photo because I like how the lady here is in her true element - it seems that nothing else matters at this exact moment.
and you captured that.
I'm sure she would enjoy a copy of this :)

Ciao ami Silvio
Difficile pour moi aussi, plus par timidité :-) une concentration douce comme doit l'être le son avec un joli mouvement des mains, très beau portrait

Ritratto di suonatore di arpa. Il colore e la chiarezza sono molto ben fatto.

So beautiful like an angel playing the harp, I can almost the beautiful sound emitting from the instrument. Great pov and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Great capture of the young lady playing the harp. Excellent composition with some lovely colors coupled with nice light management and presentation.TFS.

Fantastic use of a shallow dof with pinpoint sharpness on the girl and the harp. You can almost hear the music! Good job on a rarely visited genre. I am the same. I also like the soft pastel colours and the subdued warm cold colour contrast between her blue dress and the yellow wooden harp frame. Tfs!

Hi Silvio, Taking portrait is very challenging especially talking about the lightings. You have a good sense of how to place your angle to get a good balance of light on the women and her surroundings is lit well too. Balance tones and with great details. Thank for sharing

I can t listen the music but I can marvel at the portrait of the charming girl so fully concentrated in her music

A real charmer, you have made a great shot of this graceful harpist whose mesmerising characters shine through and the intensity of concentration and passionate about her music. Such a photo pleasantly exposed and timely captured with cutting edge! Congrats
