Trite angle, background contrast is mundane.

A little bright, but nice idea.

No strings huh? 6

The light is a bit harsh on the guitar....but string that thing up and play!

looks like a flash was used, this could be a very dramatic photo but guitar is too far away to see detail, maybe shoot this with a lamp minus the lampshade as your only light source and shoot from an interesting perspective, like down the neck

but it makes for a nice sounding drum... the lighting on the body is a bit too harsh.

Highlight on guitar is distracting.

Gets the silence across! The photo itself needs some technical help. The flash glare on the guitar is distracting. The back line of the table or whatever the guitar is on is obviously slanted. The placement of the guitar and the amount of white space makes the photo lack interest. Standing the guitar up some, or using some other color in the photo might help.

Funny idea!

No strings attached!

This is a good idea but I believe it's poorly shot. You can see the reflection in the wood from the flash and it's almost too dark at the head. A different angle and position would have made this shot a lot better.

the white wal is boring/distracting

Ha ha. I like it. Lighting could have been better - there's a harsh glare of the face of the instrument. Also to composition is a bit bland as I fail to get a sense of this instrument as a crafted 3D object.

A bit too overexposed and the reflection on the guitar is annoying. Good idea, could just be set up better.

I absolutely love the idea of an unplayable instrument, but the composition is very weak. Shot with different lighting, a different background and angle would vastly improve this photo. 3.

Great interpretation of the challenge - photo could be stronger (e.g. flash on top of guitar, tilted horizon, backgound adds little)

love the idea, did you use the flash? I find the light to harsh
