    Ah, that is what hides behind this title. Cool. Very vibrant colours. Do you only use a desklight for your photos or do you have some real and true photo lights at home? And what gives you the very black surface as background? Helps to bring out the colours so much!

    Thanks LaFoto for commenting. Glad you like it.

    This was shot using natural lighting from my patio door. To get the black backdrop I used black bristol board and then did some tweaking in PS to completely darken the background.

    the highlite is kinda on the edge. I wish the top of the compass was lit a little more, it seems just a little bit too dark.
