et le vieux piano by marshmallow-pies et le vieux piano by marshmallow-pies
One of the first photos I took with my 50mm f/1.8 lens.
There's a reason why it's one of Canon's most successful lenses.

Photo: me.
Post-Processing done in Photoscape (enhanced contrast, adjusted level, film effect).

This photo has been used as a book cover by Éditions les Trois Orangers.
Sonatine by Pierre Ravoire can be purchased here.

EDIT 17/04/09: Now available as a print.

This picture is astonishing, it gives such a great atmosphere and portrays the piano on a very special way.
Myself I compose music and post that on youtube. I wondered if it's alright if I use this picture in one of my video's? That would be awesome!
Kind regards,
Cedric

C'est une photo très belle - j'adore les couleurs et la douceur de la photo =]

I'm sorry, my French is really too appalling for me to give this photo justice (especially since I'm not even sure if I got that much right! Forgive the bad French, I'm only a beginner!). It's absolutely stunning! The piano is (à mon avis =]) one of the most beautiful instruments, and the smooth blend of the lines and mellow colours show its beauty completely.

La photo - je l'adore absolutment!

I'm sorry I've taken so long to get back to you - I have my exams coming up, so I'm extremely busy.
Thank you so much for your detailed comment, it really means a lot to me!
And the fact that you made that extra effort to write in French is all the more appreciated (and by the way, yours isn't appalling at all, on the contrary, it was pretty darn good, and not a single mistake :D)
I'm so pleased that my photo was able to communicate the beauty of the piano... It truly is a magnificent instrument to me, and I'm glad that I was able to transmit that to you!

beautiful colors and bokeh! I love pianos as well as Edith Piaf, her voice is unforgettable.
Btw the shade of pink makes me think of a beautiful morning, with a huge bucket of scented pink and white roses on the top of the piano. just lovely:heart:

Thank you so much for such a heart-felt comment. I know I will have to put that bucket of roses on top of the piano someday now!
Edith Piaf and pianos are both timeless, we definitely agree there :heart:

I really like the depth of field here. It gives the piano an almost magical unreal atmosphere.
Oerhaps you can even improve it with playing atround with the format of your deviation.
Perhaps transform it a bit and crop it as square or something
