Great shot Andy. Just like the pros. How the heck do you get a woman to buy you stuff you can actually use?

I really like your control of the highlights and contrast in the details; very defined and defect free. The shadow and composition is slightly weird to me. While the entire reflection of the object is cool, I feel it detracts a bit from the product. With advanced editing, it would be better IMO to have faster fade to black on the reflection (to tone it down a bit) and focus emphasis on the product. (I was imagining seeing this picture in a photo magazine as an add and thinking about it that way.) There are really strange artifacts in the reflection, what is that all about?

It almost looks like a microscope or piece of medical equipment. A classy image, great lighting.
