91st place
The pianist graciously allowed me to take a few pictures while he was warning up for a performance. As I walked around the stage, I found an unique spot at which the fast playing hands and their reflections from the piano drew my attention. Light was limited. Don't want to get too close to be too much a distraction for the pianist. This picture is cropped and converted to B&W in Canon DPP.
