Interesting! I think it's fine how it is with the fret board fading to blurriness. I would have preferred a different sheet under it, one without a pattern. Maybe try it again without the edge of the bed in the frame and with a solid background. I wish I could *see* stuff like this to photograph it's very original!!

David, thanks for your suggestions. This was quite an improptu shot and as you guessed the guitar was on the bed. I'll remember to take a velvet-covered board next time so that the picture has a black background.

Charly┬┤s Guitar I intended to show the fine details of the guitar's string screws and the general area around the pickups. I wanted more depth of field, but my Coolpix would not allow more than f/7 at that focal length. However, now I am not sure if I like the (uninteresting) fret bar fading out into blurriness or if I would like it to be sharp. Any advice appreciated.
