    I took this yesterday at work. I know that the focal point is to the right of the note but I sort of like it. Do you think that the out of focus sections of the photo take away from the point of focus? Should I redo this with the note in focus or crop the photo differently? Sorry for all the questions :blushing: I am still in the process of learning and can use as much constructive criticism as possible. Thanks for looking :D

    Well, yes... this is pretty shallow depth of field. My first thought is that it looks a bit muddy. My "mind's eye" tells me paper is white, and this is a long way from white.

    I do like seeing the texture of the paper. Maybe you can bring up the tone of the paper without loosing the texture.

    BTW... what note is that? And, are those 16th notes right before it?

    A quick tip...use a little more depth of field to take your viewers eye on a path to your main point of interest... People usually read, or view things, left to right.. Not that you can't break the rules.. Just food for thought.

    Thank you for the tips. :thumbup: I will have to try that shot again tomorrow.
    BTW, Christie Photo: That is an E note and the notes right before it are 32nd notes. :lol:

    I know nothing about music and notes but it looks dark to me and the depth of field is pretty shallow. If more of that "note" on the left were in focus and the paper was brighter, not necessarily whiter, it would look better IMHO.

    :confused: The one in focus (1/8) looks more like a C note to me...

    The notes in focus are on the bass clef, making that an E note. If it was on the treble clef that would be a C. ;)

    :lol: helps a lot!
    Cheers :lol:
    I kind of figure it out myself and was trying to make a point that the message is not very clear to me due to the composition (IMO).
    One have to look more deeply to figure what exactly the message is :)

    I do jazz, fusion, funk etc. :)
    And because it is a photo forum I can assure you I do better with the sax than with my camera but looks like my charts reading is a little rusty tho' :lol:
