    Guitar photo...C&C welcome

    Managed a photo of a reflection of one guitar over another. Wanted to create a mood.

    I'm wondering if there is any way to improve the composition, etc.

    Thanks for viewing.

    I like it. I would maybe try tilting the camera a bit to fit in the frame differently but you may lose the neck of the guitar. Without the neck people may think its just a picture of a blurry guitar.

    As a classical guitar player myself I LIKE IT! Good job!

    Ditto for me to!That's a great looking image to me.It's too cool how you have the reflection of the guitar following the curves on the actual guitar.Good job!

    For me there are two incidental distractions - 1. I'm not sure about the small highlight on the lower right. 2. My eyes are drawn to the lower left of the reflection, possibly due to the way that it "leaks" along the two straight lines.

    Apart from these minor points, I agree with Ron. This is a most appealing image, a great concept and composition, and I really like it.

    Thanks everyone for your input.

    After 40 minutes of fighting with Photoshop, I managed to erase the hard reflection, but not the "leak" on the left.

    Lesson learned....best to deal with the reflections on the capture phase.

    Peter, I don't have a problem with the left side as the lines helped draw my eye up to the neck and to realize exactly what I was looking at, a reflection of a guitar on the back of another guitar. For me, it helped complete and appreciate the image.
