I'm not really 100% on this composition nor on the colours. Pointers and tips?(scroll down for more)
Personally I would have liked to see the focus more in the foreground (ie centered on the metal bridge thing). This would give a sharp image in foreground with the strings taperign off into a blur. As it is there is nothing really to focus my eyes on, and the strings that are in focus look identical to those which are out of focus - ie they still have the same impact in or out of focus, if that makes sense).
Overall though I quite like the shot, if possible do a reshoot with the same composition but with the focus further forward and post it back up here.
I agree with Fokker.. Definitely more focus on the foreground would do it some good. ( but it isnt bad as is, Imo)
....Perhaps, blurred down the neck and frets....
Made a few pictures of it, including a B&W one: 1) 2) 3) 4)
Those strings are flatwounds right? This image would have more impact with roundwounds. The tightly coiled wires lend themselves to the DOF you have created here. The flatwounds probably sound better though...
They're actually halfwounds, it's a combination of the two.
