I never knew a trumpet could be so beautiful! The close up and detail is just superb! Congrats on your ribbon.

I think that the blue gel you used on one of the lights really highlights this shot nicely. Great composition - you really filled the frame with this. My favorite part, however, is the splash of green. It is an unexpected treat!

Never did get to make comments on this shot!
I had picked it to win. Excellent use of light, fits the challenge well.
I'm jealous.
Fine work here Lauriel, can see you developing as a photographer.

Laurie, this picture is excellent. can you send me a postcard of this...I'll send you another one of mine. Just kidding. But if you will, I will too.

What makes this shot good is the angle, the sharpness, and even the background. First ribbon? I am sure there will be more. Congratulations.

Damn girl, Nice shot! My brother played trumpet and I love the sound (and oddly enough the smell of the valve oil). Awesome shot and a well deserved first ribbon!

i like it, but the backdrop looks odd.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/01/2004 04:55:03 PM
this is a very high quality image - and is also a very cherished trumpet. this is a good subject for reflecting various sources of light, and you've certainly done it justice. only slight reservation is the green felt - a bit too bright and a distraction. if the instrument were turned a bit it might not be so apparent. but seriously, that's the only thing: the background is perfectly subtle, the 45° angle is perfectly, erm, angled... the left seems marginally out of focus compared to the rest though, but that's being unnecessarily picky. excellent. 8.

beautiful light and clarity
like the composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/28/2004 10:38:22 PM
Magnificent shot. Perfect DOF, lighting and composition. You didn't lose any detail in the highlights either which is difficult under the circumstances you have here - well done (10)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/28/2004 04:40:22 PM
The felt pads in this shot are a little distracting, I would have rotated the trumpt away from the camera a little more.. Stunning image though, and good choise for the backdrop.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/28/2004 02:42:59 PM
Great shot! I like the choice of zooming in to focus on just a small section of the instrument. The lighting is very nice as well. Excellent work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/28/2004 06:41:14 AM
Sharpness/focus might have been improved just a little, but this is being pedantic because the sheen makes focus very difficult in the first place and a good result has been achieved anyway. Lovely colour, great contrast. The green glow on the valves really 'finished off' the image. Nice use of an interesting background. Complementary colours. Score 9.

I wish my old trumpet was in that kind of shape (I seem to be missing several key elements -- it was a piece of crud when I got it in 3rd grade, let alone what it has become nearly 30 years later!). Great shot -- I love everything about it! - 10

Wow - this belongs on a poster. A little grainy in BG, but very nice shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2004 09:11:59 PM
Stunning. I love this. Perfect focus. Perfect reflection. I would have used a velvet backgroud so you would not see the cloth, but otherwise perfect. I really like that you can see the green felt pads on the ( what ever they are called). 9

I really like the lighting on this one...its really nice how you did not make it too harsh.

Great lighting on this. It feels like jazz.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2004 02:39:29 PM
Wowers! I love the chrome look and the "glow" that it gives off. Perhaps it would have much more impact if the background were completely black. Strong and clean image. Wonderfully done!
