1956
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
1956
1956
My husband's vintage 1956 Les Paul Jr. guitar... lying on stomach, using the guitar case for stability, I used natural window light to capture this, 1/5 second, ISO 400, f/4; Canon 24-105 L IS lens at 45 mm; cropped tightly, super sharpened, neat image and converted to sepia using Picasa software

    Excellent shot and intrigueing title! I like the way the focus appears to 'vibrate 'the strings

Sheila -- this is absolutely gorgeous and should do well in the contest -- whatever category you assign it to. Despite all the editing you describe, it looks effortlessly perfect. I love it! (and I agree with the comment above re the vibrations -- so cool!)

Thanks Pam and Roger... Another of spouses very very treasured 'toys'.. I even left the dust on there, thought it was cool... would you believe that etched on the back of this guitar is 'e.pressley', lol... yes I am sure the king of rock owned this, eh? I appreciate your interest!

This is a wonderful winner, Sheila..your creative efforts in composing certainly paid off! My son is big into music...I could see this as a fine art print for any musician playing the strings...beautiful!
