    I think you have the focus a bit off on the body, I would've put it more on the person but hey, its just a matter of opinion...

    Its a nice picture :)

    Well actually the focus is deliberately held on the plug, and I wanted to keep the body out of focus...

    This would work well in a magazine setting. Plenty of space for text or insets. Good shot.

    Great shot, I like the concept and love the depth of field.

    There is one thing that bothers me with the image though. The back half of the photo feels a little overexposed. The plug is spot on, but some of the cord disappears and the white thing on the guitar is a little hot. Also the background is glowing white. I'd like to see the photo about half a step darker. (Though with this particular shot that might mess up other things and some dodge/burn may be in order instead.)

    I also like it. One thing that popped out at me is that it looks like the subject is missing his foot. So it might be a posing thing. Perhaps he should turn his foot out to the right a bit?
