From a fellow alto-sax player, very nice shot! I'm gonna have to try that with mine, be the most use I've had for it in 3 years = )

I love the colors in this shot, being against a black background just makes them stand out even more. Excellent work. I'd like to see this same subject at different angles.

And, to extend your analogy, kind of flat, in an odd way. Clever work, though I have doubts about this being a useful subject for the challenge (which you've obviously met). We know the object has depth - but from experience, rather than from what you show. Good light, and tones, though some will find the reflections annoying on the bell - as much I would say because they look for problems rather than the constructive. Somehow, the bar-work on the stops is too confused to allow the simple graphical effect of perspective to function, I think, making the foreshortening much more drastic. A lot of stuff I like though. 7

this is beautiful. the velvety background displays the instrument perfectly--and the lighting/colors are perfect. nicely done.

This is perplexing. Is it a photograph?
Cool colors and lighting....crazy shapes...the contrast mixed with that lighting makes it look like a painting.
I like it.

Beautiful, although I find the reflections (the green and the rest of the room visible) a bit distracting.
