Shots from around the house. Inspired by my exam readings. Ok back to studying now. :devil:

Any comments are more than welcome.

guitar works for me, although I would prefer more green in the guitar photo. overall, an interesting conjure but lacks some coherence between objects. just 2c worth.

thank you henry, i'll keep those valuable pointers in mind next time I try something abstract like this again.

You're right about coherence! After adding the signatures and borders in PS, I stood back and looked at it and I realised it lacked a certain coherence to it all, perhaps if the individuals objects in their different positions could relate to each other somehow it would be more impactful.

For your information, I DID arrange the 4 photos to try to frame the photo, the heart being looking down to the right and the guitar forming a the horizontal bar 'supporting' the photo and the rest just basic preference.

Any thoughts? :think:

Perhaps you could concentrate on what you love most - guitar? music? would pencil+score and guitarboard+strings, guitar bag or guitar picks macros work? how about a shot of a nice cup of coffee next to you working while composing a piece? :think: but dun stress yourself out - study comes first :bsmilie:

by themselves, they are nice. put four together, linked by colours is interesting but may not be impactful because as viewers, we have to figure out how to 'appreciate' this piece of 'art'.... :)

no worries though, my understanding could be different from what you are trying to achieve. :bsmilie:

good for you! all the best, and hope you can achieve even better photos.... think before shooting..... it's the best policy...... i learn that a photo can be "technically good" yet totally no impact in a photo.
