It almost seems that the head joint is transparent with the reflection of the rose. The reflection is almost a continuation of the flower. I really like the picture! It's so... pretty? Amazing? Beautiful? Some good-adjective.
I play flute and piccolo too. The piccolo isn't exactly mine, but since I'm the only person in a music program of 400 people that can play it, I more or less have full custody over it.
I LOVE THE PICTURE!!!

I have looked at some of the comments, and I am not sure that the image is "gainy" in the true sense of the word. Rather, it is more a depth of field issue. (Not that the depth of field is a problem with this picture, i think it is great). But if you are wondering about the grainy appearance, I asume you are talking about the edges where the focus is lost. Greater focus can be obtained by stopping down the lense to a larger number or F stop. But there is a compromise, if you stop down too far, like to f32 you can loose definition or clarity over the whole image. The trick is knowing how far you can go. Also...another trick...focus your camera 1/3 of the way into the scene, and let the f stop focus the rest.

I hope this helps a bit.

By the way....this is a phenominal image exactly how it stands. personally, i would NOT change anything.

That's no flute, it's clearly a pot-smoking device.

Oh yes, and it's a very nice picture.

Brings a song to mind. "Kissed by a Rose". Like the pic. Very nice. Excellent shot, the way the pink of the rose reflects of the curve of the flute. Good composition. :thumbsup: Well done.

... and this one time, at band camp...

Hehe, sorry, couldn't help myself :giggle: I like this; in full view it's a bit grainy in some places (is that the right word? I don't do photography :D) but nice contrast in texture between the flower/cloth and the flute, lovely colours, and it so shiny O_o :D
Ver' pretty :)

PS what's 'the S-curve front' ??

I knew someone would say that :P you big freak. I asked Grant what i needed to do to improve it and he said it needed an S-curve, which is something you can do in Adobe photoshop and suchlike. Yea i noticed the grainy thing, but i don't know enough (anything) about photography to know why that happened or how to rectify it.
Thankies v much :)
