C&C welcome.

This image is really cool because of the oof blur shapes that the strings make, and the blurry areas highlight the texture of the strings, which is unexpected.
None of the other pics really recreate this effect. On my monitor I see banding in the grey area on the left and I don't think it's related to the texture of the strings. I don't know if that can be minimized easily.

Thanks dragonfly.

This is a combination of heavy lens flare and bokeh. I posted this image because of the unusual flare/bokeh.

A great guitar set

The 3rd and 4th pictures are the best IMHO - an excellent DOF play.
TNX for sharing.

I found another one with the reflection off the strings & minimal banding.

I agree, but that shot is still quite interesting in it's own right.

Nice! I love the DOF work here.

but for the record, only one of those seven images is a guitar, the other six are a mandolin.
