I love the colours of this shot - they are very warm. The detail is brilliant although the photo almost looks a little too sharp and is bordering on over-exposure in a couple of places. Having said that, I doubt I could have done a better job on a tricky subject like this.

I like the closeness of this shot - a lot of people are afraid to crop so tightly, but I think it works really well. I like your other shot of this music box but I think I prefer this one - and the score reflects that also.

a less complicated angle would have given more impact. But very nicely taken picture.

I would have liked this better, had it shown the complete mechanism. However it is a very well exposed, very sharp and clean pic. 8

Near perfect shot. So clean and clear. Light right on. Would like to have seen more of the specimen. It is a work of art. They still haven't come up with anything that makes this obsolete. It's as popular today as it was when it came out. I love music boxes. The may beautiful melody and you made a beautiful shot. Just give me more of it. More would have been a 10. Otherwise it's perfect in my opinion. PTL
