Mouth piece

A shot of mine that appeals to me far more than to most viewers on Flickr. It is one of my favourites of the year so far. Two months ago, we took a jazz boat tour on the river IJssel. Especially the Kampen based saxophone quartet Saxozie was a delight to listen to. The lighting conditions were sub-optimal, but I like what I got here in a close-up of one of their instruments. Extreme use of dof, and placement of the mouth piece on a golden ratio point, for those interested in composition.
