    Note: I'm not a big fan of these types of shots in general.

    That said, seems very unnatural. You'd never see the keys positioned like that in the car. (My opinion)

    Like you said the focus is off. Detracts from the composition.

    See the other post for more on how it'd be improved.

    I actually think the shot is fine and dandy... except it kinda lacks impact... but I don't know how the heck to improve it... still got a colour version?

    believe it or not... both of those pictures ARE color versions... it just has no color :p it's all aluminum etc....

    i tried desaturating it earlier to see what would happen, and it loses some fleshtones in the key reflections.

    good point about it not being natural, i had never considered that before...

    I like it very much.

    I like the repeditive curves. I like the exposure. I like the tone reflections. I like the shimmering reflection in the shift knob.
