Such a cool photograph, it looks just like a realistic illustration. I love the colors and compostion too!

I would have flipped this 90 degrees clockwise.

I really like the graphic-designy feel of this. It even inspired me to invent the word "graphic-designy."

I think the left hand side of the picture would make an excellent vertically cropped composition, but all the sideways text is just distracting.

I'd like this better if it were rotated 90 degrees. Hard to read sideways...

Sweet!, lovely colours, the pink in the light and the Donna Summer LP.
Reminds me of white people (youngs) where starting to hear black people music! :) but... wasnt that before the 70´s?... hmm...

anyways, I give this pic an 8 and I hope the best for you :)

Good theme photo and interesting concept. I especially like the left side of the picture...nicely cropped and well lit.

Was this to be portrait? Regardless, I like the pickup of pink on the record player, as well as the legibility of all the words.

I was thinking: No more old records shot please!
But this one really caught my attention. It's neat, sharp, well composed and has many 70's elements. Good luck!

The light reflection off the record is well done.

IMO a 33 degree angle would have worked nicer then this sideways framing. Nice capture of the grooves in the LP

Why isn't this rotated right? I don't see it more appealing this way (other than it grabbed my attention as a thumbnail, but attention grabbing and appealing aren't the same thing).
Like the contrast and light. 6.
