Hi Mark , nice use of the lens , and this shot is a good one , the bokeh or background is a little too noisy though and distracts a little , a quick gaussian blur layer and paint back the guitar head and fingers works a treat , have posted a mod for you , Andy
This is exactly what this lens does so well, and your composition really shows off one of the possibilities of such a fast lens. I like that you focused on the hand, not on the closest part of the guitar. Is there something light just behind the end of the guitar? It almost seems to blend with the guitar, but doesn't have the right shape to be the guitar, so it looks a bit strange. But other than that I think you did a good job. I do agree with Andy's comments, and I like his mod. But, as I said, I think overall this works well, and I hope to see more where this came from!
Hello David, i dont think you can go wrong with this lens for £70.
Andy, great mod. i will give that gaussian blur ago on other photos, nice one.
Conran the shot was taken in a very small box room(my office) full of shelves and stuff, so a very clutted place to be.
Thanks lads for taking the time to comment on my photo, much appreciated.
Great image and another reason why I love the 50mm f1.8 lens
