Scratching my head for the better part of a week over what to photograph for Complexity.
The whole while, the Heintzman upright piano sat quietly in the corner of the room.
Not a "baby grand", but interesting all the same to photograph the insides.
I literally "bounced" a sunbeam coming in the room off a white card and then off of tinfoil to get it to fall on the subject. No flash.
Cropped, brightness/contrast, screw head cloned out in top right corner, saturation adjusted, unsharp mask.

Nicely done. The red band of (felt?) adds a superb compositional element. Exposure right on.

I appreciate the hammers being shot in motion but I feel that they are distracting. I might have wrok with an angle showing more of them and no motion perhaps. Not certain. Do like the colors and the composition of the rest.

This is a good use of the angle, with the lines disappearing into the corners of the photo.

Excellent photograph! Perfect use of shadows. The motion of the pads adds a dramatic effect. I aspire to your level.

Nicely composed. I like the sense of motion from the bottom left. Well done.

This is a really nice shot. I think it would actually be better without any of the keys moving, just as a still life. But it still came out great and works well for this challenge.

nice image. I wonder if i would like just a LITTLE more of the image, so i can see the hammers on the piano... more than just a little snippit in the corner. I really like the focus, and colors and contrast. good job.
