Nice clean image, but the composition feels chopped off. Perhaps an angle that would have the neck disappear into a blur, rather than cropped off?

Here is my personal scoring scale with 2 points each. The idea behind is to justify the score I gave. You have all right not to agree with it. This is just my personal opinion with whatever little photography knowledge I have. Hope it helps.

- Meets the challenge - 2 out of 2
- Lighting/Exposure - 1 out of 2
- Composition - 1 out of 2
- Concept and execution - 1 out of 2
- Over all image, WOW factor - 1 out of 2

I like this. I feel you made a good decision to photograph only part of the guitar, and you've done it well.

I like the simplicity of this shot, and the theme of "Tools of the Trade" does shine through. I like it ...
