Hi-tech bottle opener on white background. Table top shot with two soft box strobes.

Convert from raw, hue/saturation, levels, resize, rotate, flip horizontal, USM.

I've always liked the shape of this household object, reminding me of many Sci-Fi images. Hope it strikes a chord with you too :-)

Very techno- shot. I like your rotation, big improvement over landscape. Conversion to B&W is superb. Levels of gray are terrific. Composition is wonderful. "You done good!"

I got that exact same corkscrew for Christmas and I watched "War of the Worlds" a few days ago, otherwise I would not know what you were talking about!! LOL Neat picture.

We got one for Christmas too. Was wondering how I could photograph it - now you have done it for me - nicely lit and a good clean image.
