  #157 Opposites Attract ... Our Attention
Entry 3 of 21
   
 
Plugged/Unplugged       ©2015 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GX7       3rd place, 196 points
5s, f5, ISO 125, 40mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Fixed lens distortion, cropped, adjusted lighting and color saturation, denoised and sharpened. Cloned out few dust and blemishes on the subject. Finally resized.       Extra Info: Probably worked better if it was shot in an uncluttered studio, these guitar surfaces are very reflective! Shot against a black fabric pinned to the wall. Struggled how to crop, but this seemed to be best balanced.

    An interesting framing of the guitars. Well executed. Too bad about the reflections, but they are not too distracting. In my favs. Good luck!

    I like the composition - it zeroes in on the important differences between tohe two instruments. Great detail and colour. In my faves.

    Nicely done and on theme. I can't see anything wrong with your chosen crop which works well.

    Good concept, nicely presented - the reflections don't bother me.

    I really like the composition/crop. It's also a good choice for the theme. The only flaw is, as you pointed out, the reflections. Still, it's one of my top favorites.

    oh for an uncluttered studio .............. you mention pining a black material behind the items which has worked well. you could also do that for behind the photographer or stand in front of curtains which would have reduced the distractions. well done
