String Beauty

By proz
Thanks as always for taking the time to view my stuff. this one may well tank as I know instrument shots as a rule don't fare well on here. I absolutely love the inherent beauty of stringed instruments and find it very difficult not to photograph them when the chance permits. Thus I could not just walk by this fabulous bass 2 weeks ago. hear that?

Superb, Proz. The bass is a favourite of mine - no, I don't play string bass, I just love all instruments and strings in particular. Here I appreciate the way you have captured the colours, emphasising the shadows that are so important; the toning of the side plates below the scroll is beautiful. Such an image attracts me like a magnet; one of this quality, like an electro-magnet Smile

One of my favourite instruments and the double bass looks so good as opposed to bass guitar. The resonance of tone reaches the soul.
I love the lighting, the central detail, the angle and the crop here. An excellent shot.
