If I say just a slightly softer lighting would avoid the blow out at the terminal knobs we will move on to all that is positive and good about this image.

The overall look is commendable and the colors great for this type of subject. The image brings out the subject matter in good form and the blue, white, black and red compresses the color spectrum thereby simplying the intent of the image which is to show approbation for a very good product and its great hidden implication of the way the audio signal is converted into sound waves to entertain our ears and senses.Its final end is hearing the music.
From the critique club:
The image has met the challenge and the score 5.5+ attest to its viability. To some this subject matter is not at all a factor because many place no importance on the art of music reproduction. However, those that do found more meaning in the image.

To conclude: outside of the minor hot spots on the negative and positive terminals, the image has been very well presented and you were wise to incorporate the window reflection to add more interest. A very good effort.

the title indicates the bottom part of the picture is the main subject, but just looking at the picture I find the background and sky drawing most attention.

I like what you've done zoning the picture into 4 horizontal zones using color and line. You've lost some of the sky detail but I don't think that can be helped. Among my top picks.

rule of 1/3's, good earth tones in the landscape, nice clouds. But, not very interesting.

Absolutely beautiful, but a foreground object would help put it the 'wow-ness' perspective. Great shot though.

You did everything within your power to capture the best photo possible. Focus is strong, colors are nice. The clouds, though, distract me a bit. Not much you can do about that though. If there's ever a storm, run out there again. You'll probably catch some phenomenal landscape action. 6.
