I found a broken violin in the staff room
Inspired by Moira's Strings attached I took a number of shots of it against some black card - I've added a layer of musical notation - although there won't any made by this instrument until it is repaired!!
Not sure which to load as the main image, as I like the strong outline and loose string in v1 but also the gentle finish of v2
Thanks for looking

V1 for me. The musical notation is quite discreet, it doesn't distract attention from the main interest which is the curve of the broken string.

The more contrasty V1 matches the twanging of the broken string, but V2 is a more complete picture and I do like the notes. Can't decide, so both excellent imho.
