Photo Competition - September Results

Music produces different feelings in different people, and sometimes you can capture those feelings in a photograph. It's pretty obvious what these two young musicians from rural India are feeling, beautifully captured in this colourful shot from Supriya Biswas of Kolkata. He used an Olympus E-410 digital SLR, focal length 14mm, 1/320th of a second at f/8.

The gestures in the picture above, and the feelings they demonstrate, are mirrored in this shot taken several thousand miles away in Varaždin, Croatia, by Nikola Sekulić. Unfortunately Nikola hasn't told me anything about the shot or what's going on in it, but it certainly looks like they're having a good time.

Of course not all the feelings produced by music are positive. Here's a striking and slightly scary shot from one of our regular entrants, Jon McGovern of Derby, UK. Jon describes his photo: "Taken with a Nikon D60 and 18-55 lens. Exposure: 1/50 sec at f/3.5, ISO 400. To light the shot, I used a single lightbulb above my head. Wearing a black jumper already eliminated most of my arm and torso from the shot, and I used Photoshop to clone out the imperfections and add the stripes to my face, as well as turning my teeth into fangs."
