This is a nice picture - I'm surprised it didn't do better in the challenge. I didn't vote on this challenge but I would have given it a 7. I would have probably cropped it a bit larger to get a bit more of the record player in bu the black and white works just fine.

Excellent. There's something about this that I really like - I just can't pinpoint it! - The Beachboys and an old record player in one shot - sums up the 70s very well. Nice and grainy too!

Good subject matter. Soft focus, it would be a little better if it was a little more crisp and the contrast was just a little more.

Out of focus? Soft and the disk is cut at both up and left edges

Great idea....better setup/more thought would have got a 10 but 8 is not bad!

I think you got a lot of good elements here. Try retaking this shot angled so you can see the needle clearly, still read the record title and facing the arm so the arm goes out of focus into the background.

This definately looks like the turntable I had back then. Would like to see better focus in this picture.
