I like it. The only constructive feedback I can offer is that the vignetting is maybe a little heavy in the corners.

I agree.


Also agree. Vignetting seems to exclude the player's body from the image. Other than that, it's a really nice photo.

I agree too. Get rid of the vignetting. One question: Is that sheet of music really purple?

The sheet music is really white, it is just the way it came across in the browser. The print that I made it is white. Thanks for the other comments.

I only wanted her hand in the photo, that is why the body is not showing.

Have you considered calibrating your monitor and your printer?

They are both calibrated. Sometimes the web is not nice on colors.

What did you use for the calibration? I see there's a lot of green light in the picture. Were the overheads fluorescent?

I use ColorMonki. The image is fine when printed. It is the browser/internet that is messing with the colors.

I use a Colormunki too, and it's not the browser. It's the color balance in the jpeg you uploaded.

An interesting image. White balance issues aside, I find the title incongruous in that there is only 1 hand. Also, the two out-of-focus foreground objects are on the obtrusive side, detracting from the beautiful flow of the wood grain of the instrument. tighter cropping on the left and top will focus the image more on the music and the hand.
