First Impression - the most important one: Love this photo....really great! As a musician, it really speaks to me. A very classic image.
Composition: Composition is absolutely great! Wouldn't change a thing. I love the half-view of the instrument, and the bow leading to the curves really draws the eye right along.
Subject: Great choice of subject, especially for this challenge! I also appreciate that the instrument looks nice and clean-no fingerprints, dust, scratches, etc. visible.
Technical (Colour, focus, and light): Color on this shot and lighting look good. Depending on preference, the instrument could be a little bit lighter (not too much though!). You've picked up some really nice golden tones in the wood that might be accentuated by just a smidge more light, or perhaps a little more tweaking in the levels.
To grow its vote?: I think you've done a great job, as is! Again, maybe just a little tweaking with the lighting to give the instrument a bit more of a "glow"...but great job!
Summary: A really visually pleasing photo. Great job on the composition and execution of this shot. Well done all around!
