just messing around with photoshop, as you do...

Non-specific critique requested.
(OK, I'm shameless, tell me what you really like about it...)

As someone who tortured an oboe for a couple of years in the high school orchestra before abandoning it to the relief of all, I have to like the theme. When I hyperventilated from improper breath control, I admit I sometimes felt like my head was swelling like a pincushion and about to float away! Definitely airhead moments I presume actually good players never need endure.

I do wonder what the object is above the head of the player on the left? Maybe add a faint crescent shaped highlight at the top to expand the pincushion bulge effect?

Outa my league in many ways, but a few things strike my attention.

The middle horn seems a little tight/overlap @ left persons arm
Not sure what I'm seeing above left persons head (I want it to be a tuning fork, but it looks more like a spur)
There seems to be a "distinct" line just inside the left frame edge, even with the leftmost horn.
The frame seems to have a bit or skew at the bottom

Obviously just nits that aren't of any significance to the overall vibe of the image ... which is kinda busy for my mind, but definitely creative way beyond my wherewithal.

Neat - I like the water spilling out over the frame, wonderful color.

A fun piece

No, Paul. You are not just messing around in PS as I do.
Credit where it is deserved: very creative, engaging. With something this complex and so far more skilled than I can do, I am reluctant to critique.
But, I will. I have no idea how you change this.
The dripping water, if that is what is is supposed to be, has an apparent viscosity and thickness that is unrealistic in appearance. Sharply contrasting with the realism of the remainder of the image

Fine, creative endeavor.
