This is my 1920's English banjo. I don't know who the maker is, but I recently discovered (with the use of a small mirror) some writing on the inside of the head, which is, to my eyes, illegible. Hopefully I can uncover the mystery soon.

After cropping this photo, I applied a vignette, a texture, some lipsum, and then added the quote. I would like to show the original version too, but I believe an E2 account is required for that.

I think this shot works very well Benjamin. I like the overall mood of the shot - it fits in well with the age of your banjo. The writing stands out well enough to read it and again the font adds to the overall impression of times gone by. The composition is good with the banjo set at an angle and the writing fits comfortably into the allocated space.

A very successful shot with all the elements working together - well done.

Best wishes

Catherine

I find this a little dark but, that aside, it's very well taken and put together.
