Award Shortlist   

While my guitar gently weeps.....

By Mrsbass
Good morning everyone,

Wow - I really can't believe the response you gave to the Clawback the Day images yesterday, thanks to all those who commented and voted and special thanks to Kel, Ash, Rod, Alan and Glynn for their user awards, I can't thank you all enough for your support.

It's always difficult to know what to follow on with when you have had such as response, so I have gone with a gentle mono guitar shot - taken at The Linton Festival last Sunday. (the only alteration to the image is the conversion to mono)

I hope you all have a great day, I'll catch up with you this evening.
Best wishes

This is an excellent capture Heather - and a very descriptive title too !! For a change I must say I prefer the mono version here Smile

Another fine 'action shot', Heather!
And very effective in b/w, too!
Maybe you could include a bit of sound, next time!!Wink

Great shot Heather, perfect for mono and the Title of one of my all time Fav' Songs as well, BRILLIANT!
And as you've actually managed to get ALL of the Guitar in shot, which many would not have, please accept yet another award.

Normally might pass on this type of shot , like to see the guys face , but this shot is all about the guitar , and the guy is just a stand for it , it really works and I think the mono pulls your eye straight to the guitar which is lit great and looks well framed in the space you have cropped the image in . ( Lots of room) . Well done H

Like the emphasis on the guitar - making it the focus of attention and not the guitarist.

This is amazing Heather - made all the more so by the fact it is in mono! Love the light on the guitar - the guy just being enough in the background for the focus to be on the guitar itself.
Fab title too
♫ ♪ I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps ♪ ♫
Classic song!!

Luv it heather, a stunning image, wonderful detail and glorious in black and white, ( If you could have captured his face as well, it would have been a truly magnificent image), however, still worthy of the prestigious carper123 award.
Well done.
