Nice idea, but I find the background too cluttered on the left side.

The guitar state says all the truth... I can´t enumerate the points that need some workaround. Starting with composition , walking to light, paasing over the focus. You take a slash picture. The idea itself is good. May be you can put the camera a bit far away from guitar to improve the usage of hiperfocal distance, this will help you to focus the botton of picture. The light... some can be placed under the gitar to enhace it´s silhuete. If you had used flash ligth, try to difuse it with some piece of toallete paper to avoide de overexposure in captors.

Background is very distracting, and I'd like to see a bit more of the guitar by tilting the head a bit more towards the camera. Good attempt, there's a few of these about!

This is a cool idea. I like how it's not immediately apparent what we're viewing. I wish table to the left was cropped somehow and maybe switch to black and white, or make the colors more interesting, but it's interesting to look at.

Would have been nicer with more DOF.

Really neat concept, except that anyone not familiar with guitars will not recognize that the bridge you are referring to in the titel resides on the guitar. They are out of focus but your focus is on the speaker. Other issues with this image are the stray strings coming off the guitar pegs and the table in the background. Great idea, that needs some work.

Ahhh, a musician's point of view. Good choice of title, also.

Clever and well done.

In two weeks I've already grown tired of guitar pic, but this one is slightly more interesting. FYI: time to change your strings.

Looks like an electric guitar?? Creative POV, neck leads my eye to the speaker but because the foreground has a bit too much area that's blurry, my eye gets stuck there.

nice idea. i think the light at the front is too bright and overpowering though.
