Apologies for the long title, not sure if the young ones on DPC even recognize what this product is !!!! LOL.

Shot of my Clearaudio Champion-Magnum turntable.
Fitted with Benz-Micro L2 moving magnet catridge. Turn-table sitting on 3 Symposiom vibration damping devices & entire setup sitting on a Voodoo board (a vibration cancellation platform)

Lighted with 1 strobe bounced using the ceiling. White reflectors on the right & front bottom.

Just for those audiophiles out there on DPC, Analog rocks !!!!!!!

The focus is SUPER sharp to me and I can totally see how it fits the challenge. My only suggestion is that it's possibly too dark. ??? I'll go with 9

A good quality stock/ product shot. Very well controlled lighting, exposure and DOF. In those areas, it'll be a 10/10

Since this is a product shot, I would improve on 2 areas (rather minor)
1) The framing - I'll give it a little more room on both the left and right. This will improve the "usability" of the photo in magazines and catalogs. Moreover, the crop of the photo gives it a rather tight feel.
2) The table line at the bottom is not "contributing". Meaning it's not adding value to the shot. The reason you've put the product against a plain background is to bring out the product and make it stand out. The table line (edge) is rather distracting. I would crop it out.

An overall 8 for me. A lot of technical consideration had gone into this shot!

Does this mean the shot is a film transfer? An excellent shot.
