This is a lovely image, and such a unique angle. I especially love the light beams coming through the f-holes. It's also VERY well-composed; it's even on both sides with a minimal amount of extra space. The creative viewpoint has the effect of leading you through the body of the violin. I think that this piece really accentuates the beauty of the violin.

Really my only "qualm" about this picture is the color. I would have liked to see more contrast between the light and the dark - it seems a tad washed out (that could also be my computer). But this is overall just an absolutely stunning photograph. Well done!

This is a stunning piece of art -- I adore the idea behind it and the beauty of the finished image -- what I find most astonishing are the parallels between the lyrical curves of light and ideas of scrolls, perhaps musical scores, and the movement in the composition is like a melody -- the space actually looks like a ballroom or concert hall, and that is so appropriate it's positively poetic. I can almost hear the music and smell the candle smoke. I think you probably used smoke to heighten the light, so well done with that. The wooden ceiling, the mystery of the far side of the "room" in darkness. I love the symmetry. I can't tell you how much I like this image.

Woah... see, this is an image I never even thought possible... and yet here you are with it. Brilliant work. What did you use for the smoke? and did you disassemble the contrabass, or put a hole in it?

thanks, I used a cigar, but any smoke would do it, the instrument was open for repairs.

Most interesting. Despite the fact that there may be some, perhaps subtle differences between the VIOLIN and
a so-called DOUBLE BASS, like...is this shot for real? You must have visited a maker of these instruments
to get such a shot. Anyway....it truly intrigues me.
THANKS For SHARING...regards:
Richard

thank you Richard! Yes there are big differences inside, but a violin is too small for my camera to get inside it, this was made with a full frame and a big 14mm lens. Reghin, my city is the main producer of violins and strings instruments, are many workshops and I have a few friends who work there. This was an old one open for cleaning and repairs, but I want to make more in the future because I want to get a fisheye inside it, and now I can connect the camera with the phone and see the result...

Thanks much for that great explanatory response.
It's a unique shot and you really went the extra mile to explore
these instruments. Ha Ha, you may have guessed: I'm into music,
since my 3rd year, my major in college, and a fun profession for
a number of years, as a guitarist. As a child, I loved to put an
ear on the side of the piano as my mom played it. It was quite
a moving experience for me...yep, music is really amazing!!!
To say the least....love this chat. THANKS...

regards: Richard
