Haven't posted a violin photo in awhile. I decided to replace the first photo with the second. I may change it back yet, but I think this one has more examples of "rounded" to it and it was, after all, my initial idea. I'll post the first one below. Thanks for all the input.

I love the grain in the wood, very Nice. I use tiger mable for one of my other passion of building old muzzleloading rifles, don't know if your violin is made of maple but sure looks the same. Thanks for sharing. Have to see if I can work one of my rifles into a shot sometime.

+1 you really captured the warmth and age of the wood. Nice shot!

Cool! What really catches the eye and forms the subject of your photo is the black space, which is pretty amazing when considering the beauty and detail of the violin.
As a violinist, I can't help but study the curves of the bout and the three dimensional curves of the back,
yet that black space is the main draw, perhaps because of the way it's outlined by the bright edges and the accent of the purfling.

[So it's all mirrors, but at least no smoke! ]

Hi Endre,

This shot is absolutely beautiful. I always love the shots of your strad, but this one is particularly well done. The reflection is terrific and so fitting for the theme and the color is as Mike says so rich. I think this is my favorite of your strad shots, which is saying a lot. Good luck this week.

Best wishes,

Steve S.

Hi, Endre.
When I was shooting my guitar pic, I wondered if you'd post a violin shot! And, voila! (or should I say, viola ! )
Makes for a nice abstract. Love that grain, too!
Regards,

So glad you like it, Norm. Thanks for the kind comment. Virtually all violins have their backs and ribs made of maple and their tops of spruce. I would love to see a photo of your muzzleloaders. What a fascinating passion. I assume they are more than just decorative and will actually fire?

All best wishes,

Endre

Thanks so much, Steve. I appreciate your high praise. Take a look at the photo I included in my post to Jess. You might like that one even better.

All best wishes,

Endre

Thanks, Carrol! I'm happy you like it. One of the reasons Strad was so famous was because he knew how to pick his wood for the the best effect.

All the best,

Endre

Both are excellent shots, I expected nothing less, but the second one seems to me as having a stronger relationship to the topic.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Oy vey! Yakim, my friend! You cause me more problems. I was afraid someone would comment that the second shot was more on topic. What to do? I shall have to think about that. I'm delighted you like them both, though!

Warm regards,

Endre

I'm glad Yakim piped up because I too like the second subject much better. The first just seems too "glare-y"/reflective (not sure the correct word here) and the bottom reflection too shakey or out of focus. This second one gives more play on "rounded", with both the tuning knobs, the wood whorls, etc. The bottom one has more interesting composition as well. I'm just not a fan of the line across the middle, centered look ...

Either way, you sure picked a wonderful subject and have done a very nice job.

Carolyn

Looks as if the violin has pursed it's lips to sing.

Hi Endre,

The theme is 'Rounded', not 'Curved'. Crop the second one, make sure the reflection is still in the pic, and you've got yourself a winner. Simple, no?

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Thank you for your detailed comments, Carolyn! As you see, I switched them out. I'm not sure how the reflection would become shaky and out of focus since both the violin and the reflection are on the same focus plane with no movement. Be that as it may, I think there are a lot more "rounded" parts in the photo I now have entered.

All the best,

Endre
