Wow, thanks very much all for your votes but most especially for all the great comments! He is kind of a wicked looking fellow isn't he? ;-)
This was a last minute shoot for me and there is plenty I would change with more time to shoot it (especially the mixed lighting). So thanks for going easy on me with the finer details everyone :-)

PLEASE tell me you didn't look at this pot and say, "I'll put it on the rug and it will distort into the perfect smile..."

It's brilliant! I would never have thought of it.

Congrats on the Blue, Brent!

Clever! I never know how to deal with those reflections in appliances and that makes them hard to photograph - good solution!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2010 04:30:25 PM
what a unique way to find a smile....nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2010 03:43:34 PM
That's not a coffee pot...that is pure grinning evil!:-) The downward 'v' curveture of the 'eyes' and that grin makes the coffee pot look downright evil and up to no good. Ekk! Almost makes one want to avoid going to the kitchen to get the morning coffee. Very creative use of reflections!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2010 06:14:23 PM
I love that I can't see the camera anywhere on the coffee pot! Such a creative use of everyday materials - excellent job!
