I went with my friend Amy to see The Phoenix Trap (a local band) play. Amy was jamming for a little bit after closing while the band was breaking down. I did not know at the time I shot this that it would be my entry for this week.

nice, did you try getting around to the front of the guitar, to show a little bit of the relection? i bet the flash would mess things up at the wrong angle... good job.

Someone needs a manicure :o) I am so totally not a guitar girl so this isn't a very appealing shot to me, but I'm gonna try.... It seems a little too dark maybe, and the reflection isn't as primary to the shot as in some of the other entries. It is a sharp, clear photo tho. Technically good. I also like the perspective. ~indigo997

Clean fingernails would have made the photo more appealing

Meets challenge but I somehow think a little more interest could have been incorporated. Maybe a change of angle. Not sure...just doesn't hold me interest a whole lot. Technically it's fine though. Good luck in the challenge. Grayce aka Gracious

Nice idea, excellent cropping - voted 6. How to get a higher score? I don't like the lighting (used a flash?), the watch and the little dirt under the fingernails. Be careful with details too :-)

Just my opinion, but i think losing the watch would have added to the picture. It looks out of place. Great concept, real nice shot...
