Was that taken with my old 30d? Wow, what lens did you use? by the way, I just sold my Pentax gear and am back to Canon.

Yeah, I guess so. It's been pretty good to me.

I was using a Sigma 17-70 in this one. Didn't really get along with the 18-125 you shipped me with the camera, but it sold for an OK price and paid for the 17-70, so that worked out well for me.

Thanks, I normally prefer eye contact in portraits, but sometimes that gets a little boring. I'm not sure why looking right rather than left would make a difference, is it just because he is closer to the left edge of the photo?

I don't think he was playing anything in particular, but yeah it does look Am or E chord, doesn't it? :)

Nice picture, except that it looks like that he doesn't have the lower parts of the legs.

Hello, friends, I've been away from this site and photography for a few years. Too much drama in life. Now I'm catching up.

The look to his right is looking away from the fingerboard and it looks like he was distracted. In general, I've found guitar players look out at their audience or towards their fingerboards... That rock is very effective at blocking his legs, and it just looks 'not quite right.' I think if you had him sitting on the rock he's leaning on with his legs up on the front rock it might have worked better... but then again... maybe not... A little shallower dof might have helped to focus on him as well. Good exposure and I really like the blur of his strumming hand. Most of my comments are nitpicks... Take them with a grain of salt. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys. All those little "nitpicks" are the difference between a good and great portrait, so thanks for sharing. Gotta keep that mental list of things to check before hitting the shutter button.

Yes...by looking to the left it is almost like he was distracted from what he was doing...if he had been looking to the left...or camera right..it would have played more into what he was doing, as said by one of the other posters..either looking at the fingering..or gazing off into the distance rather than behind him

Nice shot overall, good location. Call me crazy though but the stuff in his front pants pockets is kind of distracting.
