    if I have to pick one, its the first, but i actually dont really like either shots... the first one is to bright at the head (and the head is out of focus) and to dark at the body, while the second is to dark at the body.. head not TOO bad, but not great.

    emm I'll go with #2 but you've lost alot of detail in the bottom left side. Nice moody shot the way it is.

    I personaly like the black and white shot more, but you should have some more light in the picture.

    What do you mean unrecoverable? You didn't over-write the original did you...?


    I like the second one best, but I think it could use a little more shadow detail. I like the edit of the first one too.

    1. Love the shininess and reflection. But you need more light at the bottom. Try re-shooting it with a light.

    get a better guitar...

    j/k.


    i'm also a guitar player for about 13 years..i love to take pictures of my guitars - there's a special 'love relationship' between a guitarist and his guitars.

    i like the black and white better.
