The perfect first assignment for my new light tent. How could I resist? Predicting low 5 if i'm lucky.

Converted from RAW, levels adjusted for white point, cropped, sensor dust cloned out, resized, unsharp mask twice, first at 50% 0.9, then at 30% 0.6, saved for web.

Post Challenge
Well, that's a nice result, almost a 6 and my third highest score. If I had paid attention to detail re the dust and had been good enough in photoshop to remove the scratches, perhaps I would have cracked the 6. But I am content with what I got.

great shot, there are a few spots of dust, tiny scratches, etc, that i would have cleaned up first, but otherwise a gorgeous photo and ad.

Excellent. Only concern I have is the dust particles that appear. Everything else looks good to me (lighting, focus, etc).

Nice product shot. Interesting display, nice light, except a little bright above the lens.

Great job on the lighting. If it was Nikon I would have scored it higher....but it is just another over rated canon. LOL

The photography is pretty good, but the lens should look new. I guess it could be a used product, but the comp looks like it is for a new lens.

Being advance editing, I would have tuoched up the blemishes and made it look more pristine.
