Copyright infringement concern

There has been some concern about copyright infringement here lately and I thought of my song cycle which I recently embellished with photos of the poet (Emily Dickinson) that were taken in the 1860s. One such - https://musescore.com/user/29586932/scores/5611797 
I now fear the possibility that someone "owns" these. Could this be possible?
If so, that is a problem. I recently tried to get permission from  publisher to use words from an early 20th century poet and I never received a reply in 5 weeks. I would not even know how to find out who would have rights to these old photos, let alone expect a reply. 
Do you have any knowledge of this?

Importantly, I would like to know if there is a problem, will I be forewarned or is my music just yanked out like an old molar?

Plz help!

I just started playing alto sax last week for a summer program and I think all in all it’s an easy instrument to start off on (maybe because I have been playing clarinet for 3 years). But I am still struggling with holding it. It’s very heavy and sometimes my thumb is swollen from holding it. My friend who has been playing alto sax for 4 years says my sax is bigger than hers. I’m sure its alto because my music teacher gave it to me and I can’t switch it out for a different one. Does anyone have any tips on how to hold the sax? Thxxx and I appreciate it- Flutinetist ^~^

Repeats broken on site

A week or two ago I asked about this. When I use the Nice Keys or Touhou soundfont and upload a score with that audio, when you listen through, repeats don't work. Here's some examples in my scores:

Here's one where I uploaded with and without the soundfont.

Original Video Game Soundtrack

Hey y'alls

I have been working on the soundtrack for my friend's video game. These two pieces are the themes that will play behind the final battle (I know, I'm great at making creative names :-P). They both have the same innitial two minutes twenty-four seconds, but following this, their tones change completely. The first one (Final Battle) is lighter and a bit faster. I tried to build a bit of tension before the very end. The second one (Final Battle Dark) is much darker (hehe, get it?) I use slow and low brass, a viola, and we hear the tortured wailing sound that is the theme for the game's enemy: the wraiths.  Hope you enjoy, and constructive feedback is always welcome, be it positive or negative.

GuitarTuna

This is a nice app. I use it to tune my guitar. It’s very helpful as accurate. This app also has options to tune other instruments like a violin. And for I think $10, you can get these little fun guitar chord related games, that help teach you the guitar.

Overall, great app. And I highly recommend it.

My first real piece of music, please critique!

Hey guys!

I've been composing music for about a year now, but I've learned a ton about theory and composition in that time, and I've finally finished a piece of music that I can say I really understand. Unlike most of my other compositions in the past, which were mostly just random improvisations, every note in this piece was meticulously chosen to be there. Because of this, I'd really appreciate some critique.

Here's the link: https://musescore.com/user/3314891/scores/5542553

Enjoy!
