Analyzing a Photograph

One of the photographs that I really enjoyed taking was the one of the inside strings of a piano. The piano itself is very artistic looking and I love how this photograph displays this. The soft swirl that curls beneath the strings adds a complimentary contrast to the taut strings that criss-cross each other. The red line of felt stands out against the wood in a pleasing manner. I really enjoyed how I used the aperture to make the strings closest to the viewer clear (as clear as I could, this was one of many attempts) and more out of focus in the back of the photo. I think that this is just the right amount of clarity and really guides your eye all the way to the back so that the depth and layers of the piano can be recognized.
