Thanks all for the comments!
I did have a picture exactly like this where the depth of field was correct and the viola is in focus... but I edited and uploaded the worse version where the viola was out of focus!!!
I've just started out with photography, especially this branch where things are preemptively set up for the photo so hopefully I can improve in the future.

Thanks Again Commenters, it's greatly appreciated having your feedback!

Lovely composition but a cleaner focus would help. 6

I love the setting, lighting and theme, it's just a bit OOF I think. 8

I wish the violin was in focus too.

I like the composition - the angles, but for me, I wish it had an overall sharper focus, especially by the violin.

Beautiful the only thing i dont like to much is the long shadow fropm the roses on the music

Great idea - but seems a little out of focus on the violin

Great idea and composition, but the focus is off a bit on the violin. I think sharpness would have halped, then the edge of the floor/deck a bit destracting, does not match the subject matter, it is rough, the violin is elegant.

It's a well set up shot...but the violin is not out of focus enough...or it is not in focus enough. I don't know. I can't tell if it's supposed to be in focus or not.

I like the subject material - kind of. It's almost like you attempted to put too much together here and have lost potential impact overall. The music with the roses - or - music sheets with the violin. The music stand center leg is also a distraction. Last thing...the violin is substantially OOF.

Would like to see more DOF so the violin is also in focus.

I really like the idea here, but for me the harsh shadows cast by the light detract from the image, also it would be better if the violin was in focus. But nice set up and angle!
