Photographer's Note

I really like this picture, a revisit to the Trafford Centre yesterday to retake some pictures of the bronze statue I posted a few days ago, I found that the name of the sculptor was Colin Spofforth, a local artist who was commissioned to create the art in 1997, he travelled to America to meet real life jazz musicians, taking many photographs.

The actual name of the piece is The Spirit of New Orleans and features four life-size players, this is the banjo player, I love the serene look on his face.

A small amount of post processing here, unsharp mask, and the tone of the extreme highlights (the flash) was changed to yellow, matching the rest of the image.
