Macro shot of a cellphone. It was kind of difficult to take this shot as the keypad was coated in silver and had tons of light reflection coming from it. Instead, I used my desklamp with a Phillips terracota lampbulb to give the keypad a warm tone and semi-covered the lampshade with a white envelope to avoid direct light. The purple-ish velvet background is actually an anti-static cleaning cloth for my camera lens. Might have been more interesting if the buttons were lit-up with that greenish light. But I just didnt have enough time.

A well composed and executed image. The subject matter is a bit bland for my taste, however this photograph would make a good stock photo, with space for advertisement and excellent tonal range. Technically, I am impressed by the way the glare was contained. Overall, an impressive effort, well worth noting.
