I chose to reproduce my own image because it's a matter to measure my improvement, by using new techniques and equipment which I acquired since then. I like this subject so much and I believe this time this it is far better done, including the photograph itself and the post processing.
I used 4 flashes with different gels to change their colors. One flash on the right side of the sculpture with a CTO gel. One flash on the left side of it, with a Full Blue gel. Two flashes for the background, one with two gels and another one with a full CTB gel.

For those who wonder what is this, this is an acrylic sculture. Behind it, there is a desktop motherboard.

Editing:
Levels
Topaz
Combined another identical image with different exposure for better dinamic range
Burning in lots of spots
Cloned out lots of imperfections
Cloned out a distracting edge on the left bottom
High Radius USM for contrast
Resize
USM for sharpening
Saved for web.

Well, this is not going so well as I expected. My first entry went reasonably well and this is one is much better technically, but it is going to achieve almost the same score as the previous one.

Very modern type of shot. I like it but the background is a little distracting.
