Clever idea and excellent off-camera lighting in the first-place image, although a more informative caption would have been nice. The second-place image recalls the Hank Williams lyric “There’s a tear in my beer.” A great image from what must have been a difficult project. The guitar portrait features a comfortable pose, eye-catching colors and masterful lighting.
