Very nice, one of my favorites
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/28/2004 03:09:08 PM
Very good, I like the toning. maybe it's a little bit too much dead space to the right, otherwise a very good work. I'll guess this will end up in top 10, even have a ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful composition and lighting
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a fantastic image! You've got perfect depth of field, and it evokes a great feeling in the viewer. Elegant and simple. Hope you get a ribbon! 10.

one of the best ones in this challenge. beatiful composition and hands on the instrument. the sepia tone also work here very well. the only possible suggestion i can think of would be to place the objects slightly off center, not right in the middle of the picture. i think it would invoke a better emotion. (let me know what you think if you try it).

too much baclighting, I would have like to see more detail of the hand and neck of the violin. Also the light colored part of the border seems to get lost at the top of the image.
09/25/2004 12:33:41 AM
Crisp!

Beautiful use of ligth and shadows, great composition too :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/24/2004 01:42:37 PM
gorgeous shot and colors-harsh geometric border is distracting from the organic nature of it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/24/2004 10:42:38 AM
WOW! One of the best! Super detail, super color. I simply love it. This photo stands out of the crowd! Good luck!

I like this a lot - would like the fret board a bit lighter.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/23/2004 06:54:09 PM
Excellent contrast. Nice lead in from he corner.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/23/2004 01:22:23 PM
Love the saturation, yet it's slightly too centered. you should have left more space on the right handsite. It is definetelly the touch :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/23/2004 11:23:25 AM
I can see the effect you're going for by not lighting the front of the hand, but it doesn't really work for me. Also, cropping off some of the empty space on the right would have improved the composition, I think. 7

09/23/2004 08:30:40 AM
Beautifully done. Its well within my top ten!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 11:09:06 PM
NIce composition. I think the shadows are a tiny bit too dark, but other than that excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 04:19:56 PM
Very beautiful composition. Something's not sitting right with me, however. I think this may be slightly oversharpened, but I'm not sure. Anyway, still very beautiful. 7.

Winner !

this one does it for me, beautiful lighting and tremendous tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 04:15:48 AM
This is a really beautiful photo. The only suggestion I would make is to move the subject a bit to the right so the composition isn't so centered. But that's a small point - this is a really nice shot.
