My Dad’s challenge this week was simply ‘music’. So I turned to my violin which, I hate to admit, has been neglected in the last few months so it was nice to give it some attention!

I wanted to create a slightly more abstract photograph, so experimented with close up shots of various elements of the instrument. Eventually I went for this shot, focusing on the bridge in the foreground but giving a glimpse of the rest of the instrument into the distance. I created two layers with the top layer black and white, and the bottom layer remaining in colour. I really like the subtle hint of the brown wood, while trying to preserve the atmosphere created by the black and white effect.

I'm new to the photography world, and would appreciate any constructive criticism on any of my work.
