Mandolin Machine Heads       ©2008 LindyB
Panasonic DMC-FZ18       3rd place, 187 points
1/5s, f2.8, ISO 200, 28mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cloned out a mark on the blue cloth

      Extra Info: The mandolin is at least 100 years old and is in dire need of restoration. The machine heads are in better condition than the rest of it. The back of the mandolin is beautifully hand-painted, though faded, and I unfortunately couldn't get a decent shot of it.

    I like very much the colour mix (yes, I'm very fond of blue :-) and the pic is nice for the theme... thanks also for the extra info. TT for me, good luck!

    mrsawyer - it depends on whether or not you are interested in the detail of the workmanship.

    I question your choice of subject. Would not showing more of the mandolin be better?

Update; lindyB, I did not see your extra info before I posted my original comment. Now that I've read it, nevermind! :-)

    It's just amazing to see even a small part of such an old musical instrument. I like the blue background as it seems to give a moody look to the wood. TT~!

    Excellent; composition (angel and crop), sharpness and lighting as well as the combination of the object with the blue background; good luck

    What a cool piece. I love seeing the craftsmanship that was used so long ago.
