Love of music by ILTBY Love of music by ILTBY
Predominantly for my entry to :iconphotographersclub: 's current theme; music.

A very simple expression of my love for music. Please note I risked destroying a very old piano for this shot :p Fortunately I was able to get rid of the marker.

P.S: Don't make fun of my heart drawing skills.

Also, please full view :)

:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

ETA: This piece has been pretty popular so I thought I'd put a bit more effort into the editing. Played around with textures and adjusted curves, saturation and added a warming filter.

ETA 2: This shot is now available as a print after a request :)

Strange that you chose the "E" key to draw the heart on, it's one of the root notes to the key of "E Minor" my personal favorite key to compose in! Great capture! :D

Hi there,

Thanks so much for the invite to your competition, I'd love to enter.

I did submit it as a photo-manipulation, but that was when I didn't have a grasp on what a photo manip was :p I'll be sure to change its category now.

Thanks again,

Josie.

I totally dig that. I adore pianos and synthesizers, though I'm still learning--slowly--how to play.

Love of music? I thought it was the brown note! :D Sorry, but, if you've seen South Park, you'll understand what I'm talking about.

Great photo. I love it.

I'd love to own an old piano like this. :heart:

Hehe same, though in all honesty it's really just dirt and dust from not being used for so long :blush: It is very old though, I'd love to know how old actually.

Thanks :)
