Pretty straight forward shot. Going for a cool point of view and dramatic lighting of course, of my beautiful Ovation 12 string. I was just trying to do it's beauty justice.

Setup was my black sheets on the wall and floor, and the guitar on it's stand. The light I used was my little clamp shop light fixed to my microphone boom stand shining down from above. The shot was taken from the floor in front of the guitar looking up.

In ps- rotated slightly, cropped, usm, selective color adj., levels adj, hue/sat adj, and curves adj., very slight gaussian blur and resized.

Thanks for checking out my pic :-)

The loss of detail in the upper strings caused by the overlighting in that area is distracting to me. I would have cropped it off...and maybe rotated it.

The overexposure along the grip of the guitar distracts a bit.

Good shot. Maybe a little over exposed near the top perhaps.

would have been perfect if it were not blown out on the fretboard.
