Dollhouse phone sitting on an old microscope. Took a lot of Brasso to get the brass shining again. Tried different lighting and finally got best results with early morning sun. Took a lot of shots before I realized a profile angle worked best. Cloned out a few spots and added a backdrop color. Usual PS levels, curves, and smartsharp.

Haha, I like it :) The background colour choice is spot on with the props, to give it a kind of old fashioned feeling.
