I "borrowed" these roses from my wife's anniversary arrangement. I felt they added something to the clarinet.

Very nice. As a clarinet player, I can appreciate this a lot. Very nice set up, lovely angle and framing/cropping. Your focus is nice, however, it looks like there was a bit of sharpening done? If not there are some strange speckles similar to that of over sharpening throughout the photo. Wonderful lighting. I like this a lot. Good luck in the challenge. ~Hbunch7187~ PS Stop setting your clarinet down on the bell. :)

Composition is fine, and the lighting is good, but not dramatic.

Lovely composition

Beautiful. Just wish the shadow had not been so dark or the top. Would like to have been able to read through it. But's that's just me. I really like the whole. thing. Technicals are all good. Very eye appealing picture

The image seems overly processed to me or there are artifacts noise issues. The composition is decent IMHO but the image has problems due to the artifacts. 5 paganini

Very nice execution of a commonly done theme... roses and musical instruments, especially pianos are good combinations of colors that work well together... The directional lighting here creates some nice shadows and creates nice highlights on your roses... great shot :) - setzler

Nice lines and use of color. Quality seems a bit off - compression artifacts maybe? 7 ~indigo997

very nice compostition, would have liked it a little better if the title was in focus.

I love the composition of this. it is a little oversharpened to me, but nice contrasts nonetheless. karmat

Great idea. I like the colors and the composition. I would have liked the title on the sheet music to be a little less blurry. Good job. Jo Ann

Nicely done, good composition, color. Super. Justine

Looks a bit overprocessed, not natural.
Probably also to much jpeg compression (it is 75kb), not making the overprocessed look any better. Wonder if it would be better at a higher quality setting, closer to 150kb in file size.
Overal it is a good composition.

Very nice composition!! No pun intended. Beautiful picture. Could tell that you may have had problems with focus. Outside of the challenge, I wonder if better lighting would have helped.
