Post Challenge:
Wow! I can't believe I pulled off a 20th place on this! I had the idea to take a picture of the inside of our piano for "From the Ground Up" but decided it wasn't quite right for that. At the last minute, I realized it was the perfect thing to shoot for this challenge, and with about 10 minutes left before voting began I shot the picture. It was 11:58 server time when everything was uploaded successfully. I was surprised that all the dust in there was not a problem in this image.

Critique Club Review:

Cool! Great execution. Lighting, color, hue, saturation, contrast,are all dead on! Focus is good, and depth of field, looks a bit soft near the upper right, or it could be just the size of the wires. I can't really tell.

I really like the pattern of the strings across the picture, it really works for me. I might have liked it a bit better without the tie points for the strings in the lower right, but pianos are built the way they are built. Not much one can do about that, and cropping it out would have lost some of the impact of the curved wood and shadow.

Congratulations on a fine photograph.
