    Here's a set of pictures I shot today. Since it's really an old piano, I wanted them to look a little bit lo-fi and dark, with all the dust and scratches.
    The pictures are pretty similar, so I'm curious to know which one you like the most.

    EDIT: See post #6 for a new picture.

    Thanks man! The marks are part of what I wanted to show, so it's really a compliment. But it's a shame that the piano sounds much worse than it looks...

    Nice job! I really like them all, but particularly the first and fourth.

    Thank you! #1 is also one of my favorites, probably along with #3.

    I would love to see the whole piano in one view. Nice closeups however.

    I like #1, but the rest are equally nice.

    Thank you both!

    @Matt: I'd love to see that, too :D As a matter of fact, I'm working on it, but the rooms is less then ideal, which is why I'll have to move the piano a bit and play with the lighting. I don't have the time right now, but I'll definitely do it, since it's really a beautiful piano, with candleholders and everything.

    Also, I'm working on close-ups of the strings and the whole mechanics in general.

    Very cool closeups. Makes you think about all the music that has been produced through that piano's lifetime.
