posted on 21st of june, 2011

Hello, there's an image in my portfolio that seems to be very overlooked. I like it but it has only few views. Please tell my what do you think about its quality and composition. I'll be very gratefull for your comments.

I agree with what someone said before me, the instrument is not sufficiently distinct and the music sheet is too much covered. You have to make a clear separation and know which one is the main subject. In this case, the composition seems undecided, Otherwise, in my opinion the sharpness and lighting are quite good. :)

I can only give you my personal opinion as I do not claim to be an expert nor a reviewer. So, here it is. As far as I know, it is never a good idea to cut off the subject. so ask yourself , which is the subject and which is the object. if it is the music sheet, then it should show more . if it's the instrument that should be totally shown. if it 's both, then as it is , it shows not enough of either.
This is my guess why it was not "use-able" as a stock photo. Hope it helps.

Is not very clear what that instrument is.Also, you have some bad keywords and some dust on the instrument.Maybe is better o upload a version of the image without the instrument.PS:That is my suggestion but,wait to see some other answers.

Sorry if I'm being too direct, but I don't see anything special in this image. It doesn't make you say WOW. You have other very nice images from your portfolio that you should write a blog about :)

Personally I enjoyed it alot. It has a strong composition and a nice concept. However , maybe ( I say maybe ) instrument could be more distinct.
