I somehow doubt any of these instruments will ever be played again!
As usual I can't choose between two so I'll let you decide!
Just the modelling lights used again ......

You're doing great work at the moment Alison - prefer this even to yesterday's and v1 is my preference!
V2 is my preference. Thank you.
Very interesting Ali
Love that really old instrument at the front - trombone?
V1 for me - who can explain their choices?
Who can match you for originality?
Congratulations on GEA.
I prefer the crop/composition in V2. It's more contained, it creates its own private place. What worries me in both is that the guitar starts on the left, then the fiddle appears, then there's a gap between it and the balalaika but no continuation of the guitar...
I have an instant like for this shot. Sensitively lit and beautifully shot.
Although no doubt carefully crafted, there is an almost "Chukked in the Corner" feel to it, but with the violin tying the composition together with its strong diagonal from the dead Cornet to the Balalaika. The tighter and square crop of V2 is a little more dramatic and suitable for the subject and it doesn't have the strong highlight on the violin, which tends to dominate in V1. I agree with an earlier comment regarding the guitar disappearing and there is a hint of fretboard in V2, so I am comfortable that there is detail there that can be brought out a little.
Thanks everyone - and thank you for your award Ann - very much appreciated
All of a sudden the screen has gone very bright and it doesn't look so good now - I'll calibrate it in a moment and see what happens.
As for the composition - indeed the neck of the guitar is barely visible and the head disappears altogether. Now the monitor has gone incredibly bright I see it doesn't really work. I shall bear that in mind next time!
The battered old wind instrument is either a trumpet or cornet Adrian - not a clue which! Once upon a time it was probably a nice shiny silver!
Slow on the upload of my comment
The highlight is definitely my main niggle with this version but as I said, I really couldn't decide which I preferred
I'll see if I can come up with a different arrangement whilst everything is still to hand. I'll have to sort out a different surface for it all to stand on as that guitar is rather heavy and needs more solid support!
Calibrated again - much better!
Congrats on the GEA Alison
