Good for a square crop cutting painting off. It could work ven better in BW IMHO

A lovely informal portrait, David. I know what Giulio means and a square crop would work but I rather like the juxtaposition of man and painting.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Nice relaxed portrait, wouldn't it have been great if his hand had matched that of the woman in the painting

I took a series of pics here while having coffee and cakes in the Pump Rooms with my wife. I have done some in square format and they work quite well, but its time to confess. Carelessly when I shot this I cropped off the edge of the portrait on the wall which I saw as a juxtaposition to the resting pianist. Didn't notice this until it was too late to shoot it again and get it right.
Not to worry, I expect to go back next year and do it properly.

I agree a square crop would work as would one that included the whole painting and cropped a bit of top and bottom back to what you have. AND it also works for me as is! Nice one
