Yep this is what I came up with for Loud! Fender is loud too... I hope I did well enough to score better than my usual shots this year. I am super excited about the settings in this camera that I have not used flash and I try to keep the light natural. My son nicknamed his guitar (Black Betty hence the title here)

Hello from the critique club...

I definitely like the subject matter. I this was a great idea for "LOUD" everything about it screams loud. The biggest problem that I see is the background. There's little distinction between his shirt and the background and also the guitar and the background. I think that had a very negative impact on your score. This might have been avoided by using a different light setup or even a slightly lighter backdrop. (not white) I don't think white would have worked here either. There also seems to be some blur. That can sometimes be caused by a lighting issue or ISO. Good composition and good idea though. Happy shooting.

I don't know who/what "Black Betty" is but that big box in the foreground signifies plenty of power. Tone down that glare on the guitar and you have a good one going here.
