Clarinet standing against black felt background. Used a flashlight with blue saran wrap over it to highlight during about a 3 second exposure. Rotated, cropped, adjusted hue slightly to bring out more blue, resized, sharpened and saved.

Too dull, colours need to be more vibrant.

excuisite. Excellent concept, and good execution. I'd give it a 9.5, but I can't, so I guess you get lucky and I'll just give it the benefit of a 10. :-)

Love the idea. Needs a boost in levels though to bring out the light painted...

Now that is nice. Favorite so far, creative.
Minor nitpicks: some noise or artifacts is disracting me on the bell and the right of the clef (compression artifacting). Also the glare on what I think is the E-flat valve (could be wrong on that, it's been awhile since I picked up a clarinet).

I like the way this turned out. Looks like it could have benefited from a slightly brighter beam with a harder edge.

A little dark overall but still nicely done.

Nice use of an etherial treble clef in the background, wish it was a little brighter against the clarinet...

Beautiful! I love the subtleness of the treble clef, and the color choices really work well together. Great job!

Interesting. How was this accomplished? The focus and the colors are a little dark for my taste.
