Theme for a photo group I'm in was "Oldest object you can find". We have a piano that my wife's parents purchased when she was 11, they got it from a company that collected old piano's and refurbished them. We now have it in our house and hope our kids will grow up playing it just as my wife did.

I like that you kept it in colours…
with that twisted WB! Very nice.

Excellent! I tried doing some shots of my wife's piano in black and white film but they didn't turn out half as good as these!

Thanks, I did try it in B&W but felt it worked better in colour.

I like both of those very much, the colour tones are beautiful. (y)
Thanks, nice to hear others like them, I'm often unsure if I have processed things to much.

Thanks, I have tried in B&W before and not been happy with the results.

Indeed, as the shots offer little dynamic range,
a conversion would look muddy.

The 2nd shot is my favourite out of the 2, very nice with the different textures of the smooth keys and wood grain.
