Got this idea from my friend ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' De Sousa. I think his ideas and setup's are some of the most creative here on DPC, and I appreciate him allowing me to give my attempt with the shot. Don't forget to check out his shot.
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/570/120/413108.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/570/120/413108.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
Lit with two lights. The stronger flashlight gave the Saxophone the shadow and a higher light lit the actual Sax. My wife printed out the music notes and taped them on the wall, and helped big time with the setup. Hope everyone likes my take, and make sure to check out De Sousa's shot. Obrigado meu amigo!

Great idea, but way oversharpened, IMO.

Great image. Borrowed theme, but we all do it. The harshness of the light on the sax distracts a bit. Less contrast on the sax may have allowed this to be smoother.

The notes don't quite look right, 7.

Great idea and execution!! would have given it a 10 were it not for the over-sharpened notes (you can see a white halo around them)and the distracting true shadow on the left (8).

This should be in the top 5. My one nitpick is the slightly out-of-focus shadow. But still a beautiful photo and great idea.

nicely done, your lighting is good.

Would have been moodier without the notes
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful shot. The quality of the post processing in regards to the notes is a bit amaturish. The concept is good, just not great execution.
