The b&w with the old fashioned phone makes the image appealing to me. It's a simple, uncluttered image that meets the challenge well. The only things I dont like are the reflections in the clock, they are a little distracting - I am almost trying to work out what they are, which is bad. The clock also seems a little tilted on the wall, or maybe just in relation to the phone, not sure, but it seems odd. The concept of a futurisitc movie being shown in an "old fashioned" theme is interesting, and I like it.

Is that a real clock? Can't be because it would be inaccurate since there's more distance between the 12 and 1 then there is between, say, the 2 and 3. Very nice setup and great looking phone.

Reflections on the clock are annoying - as is cropping out the handset cable. Also think you've placed the elements to far to the edge of the frame - just outside the thirds lines if you like - but the empty space seems too much the subject of this shot.

if the wall were plastered and look "aged" it would give this picture a more interesting effect. Also the wooden table could use a few patches here and there. nice idea.
