You focused on the knob to direct our attention there, but the huge blown area at the right pulls my eye away from the knob.

I don't get moody at all and wondered why would you focus in on a ordinary numbered knob when there are so many other elements that look interesting.
I didn't get distracted as much by the white blown area because nothing kept my interest.

I fail to see any mood there, but for a product shot [as one from a set] - nice stuff. Just clean up that nob [or whatever that is / *retreats ashamed about not knowing this].

Thanks for the input one and all!
I guess "moody" don't quite fit here ;)
The white blur in the upper left is the top "horn" or arm of the guitar.
I thought it gave it depth... however I see now it is just a distraction.
I will PS it later on and see how it looks.
Thanks for looking and taking the time to comment! you guys rock!

Now the question Mojo... Can you rip on that beast? I should probably shoot more of the random instruments around my house. My son plays acoustic, electric and bass guitars. He is working on drums and played trumpet in high school. So I have a collection to work with. Not to mention all of the various amps and other miscellaneous music gear that comes with the previously mentioned.
Thanks for the idea on what I will be doing this weekend.

Clone out the white blob at the top left, gradient filter from the lower right to reduce the blown-out feel to that side of the photo (or maybe play with some post-crop vignette settings to achieve the same and refocus the eye more center-photo where the focus is?)

I did not have much luck getting rid of the spot, so I just cropped it out.
I don't quite get the gradient filter... am still trying to learn PS :(
I used shadow and highlight to try to bring in more detail in the washed out area.

Not really zeroing in on anything... just looking for something "moody", which I still don't think I have yet!

Kevin, had a few minutes after lunch to see what I could do, all edits were done in Lightroom 5

IMAGE: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-9v2YOOrPVmo/UhzwEEuWnpI/AAAAAAAAUzg/04Bfjtny57U/s912/IMG_2851-s_zps0768f2d0.jpg

Global edits:
+21 contrast
+29 shadows
+29 whites
+2 vibrance

localized edits:

- Spot removal for the white spot upper left - the added shadows helped mask any less than perfect results
- gradient filter from the lower right, centered on approx the middle dial with -.67 exposure, -12 highlights, -17 clarity and a slightly warm orange hue added.
- radial filter centered on the in-focus volume knob, -.48 exposure, feather at 50
- post crop vignette added at -24

Kewl... good job on the spot. I hadda just crop it ;)
I notice that even tough you turned up the contrast, it seems more even than in the original. ...interesting...
Other than that I must admit I don't see a big difference... fault being totally mine! I have terrible eyesight :mrgreen: I don't see subtle changes too well... PROLLY not something I should admit as a wanna be photog!
but anywho... ;)
I appreciate you taking the time to help. I will go back over your settings and try to recreate it in PS!

I checked out some of your shots on the picasa thingy... those stormy landscape shots are great!!
