    I have found a new fascination with my piano and like to take alot of B&W pictures of it at different angles.

    I'm not crazy about the contrast on 4, 5 and 9.

    good job, but like weaving wax said about the contrast, those photographs could use a white

    1 made me giggle, the digi drum FX icons really undermine the goal of that shot. I like 8 the best.

    The thing is see that i don't like is that in the black and whites, the keys should be WHITE white, and the keys should be black. Right now, you're piano keys look a little grey (see 9, 5, and 4)

    Hehe well #1 I wished I could not have got that in the picture and just got the rose and keys but I couldn't angle it the right way to get all that out. It could be cropped and done better

    As for the contrast. I did that because I didn't want anything in the background (notice everything is BLACK) but I think I may have just underexposed it a LITTLE too much! :) But I locked the exposure where the sun was shining (which would be where the white keys are "lightest" and then moved over where you see everything fade out.

    I was just experimenting.

    I will wait for another sunny day and see what I can come up with.

    Thank you all very much for your comments and critiques!

    Very nice. Though I'd hide the ones that giveaway that it's a modern keyboard/electric piano given your use of black and white and sepia.
