The title doesn't fit (as stated below) although I think I can see where you're coming from, perhaps in regards to vinyl fading away, an old record fading out of `existence` so to speak.

However, the detail and saturation in this shot are awesome, if only the crop was more interesting, i think theres far too much background, and not enough LP.

One of the best i've seen in your gallery though, along with the cool hover fly macro shot ;-)

The positioning of the reflection on the LP is also pretty wicked ;-)

Love the shadow - great use of color as well. What a crisp tight shot. Very nice.

Great shot of the record, but the background has something in it which is distracting.

This is a good image. I had some of those orange vinyls years ago.

I think you needed to get more of the orange into view

Great focus, love the shallow dof. The black top is almost half of the entire image which hurts the photo. I would have tried to shoot from a higher angle if possible to see which is better composed. 7

Classic equipment and translucent Gold Colored Vinyl (well orange / gold). Fantastic lighting. A little something going on in the background with the faint white shapes. Maybe could have thrown a dark sheet over that or other wise muted it more? I really enjoy the detail of the arm. Have to say it again how I like the lighting. Makes the forground visiable without looking light blasted. This should do well. Something to be proud of. Also nice use of thirds.

I love this picture. The DOF is right on. The spinning of the record is obvious and suggests the person who took the picture is enjoying some tunes worthy of an inspiring photograph. The perpendicular placement of the arm in the frame is great and helps keep my eye in the lower portion of the image due to it being completely in focus from left to right. The exposure could not be better. My favorite so far. 10.

I love the simplicity an elegance of this photo, one of my favourites even though the majority of the shot is not orange

i don't exactly understand that this head of the pick-up is fading away... it's very present and there is no suggested movement of fade... it's too sharp...to fade...it's just not working for me...

It may be old and out of the MP3 player loop....but it is a good photo. I like it. The light is sweet..Real nice entry. Good luck.
