The richness in the color and texture of the violin is simply beautiful. You have done a very good job picking out some interesting shapes, and creating a composition with it. I would also like to see a version sans notes. I think they give away the image too quickly for my tastes. The violin parts are more than strong enough to stand on their own. That is just my two cents based on my personal preference and is not meant to take anything away from the image as is because what you have done here is very very nice already. I feel this will be tough for anybody to top.

Haha, I knew when I saw a picture of a violin, it was sure to have the name "Strad" attached to it!

Thanks so much, Cristobal, for your thougtful post and kind words. I really appreciate it. I still have the layered psd version so I could try taking out the music but I really felt it neeed it to communicate a sense of sound that otherwise might not be there. It's very hard to convey sound and vibration through a photo.

All the best,

Endre

Endre, what to say? I can only echo the previous comments, beautiful.
I think however, that I prefer the black and white version just a little bit more.

Thank you, Yakim. I'm so glad you like it! There really wasn't that much to it other than shooting the photos, cutting out the parts, and then using various gradients and transform tools to put everything in place. It's always fun to have an excuse to mess around with PS.

All best wishes,

Endre



I tried PS once but could not get along with it. I am now using DPP. Crop, and sharpening is all I can do

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

The tension in this is so interesting Endre- I think the whole thing would collapse into a heap if all the elements weren't positioned just so...

I have to echo everyone else. This is fantastic!

I don't know what I could possibly add to all the wonderful comments you have already received, Endre. I particularly love the background. Super creation...good luck!
