I found this old coffee grinder, bought some coffee beans (Sumatra - they smell sooo good), put it on a white background, as a light source I used a 150W halogen room lamp that bounced off the ceiling.
Adjusted curves/levels to eliminate yellowish tone of the background, resized to 640, slight USM (about 15% on 25 radius) and voila!
Here are the results.
After the metal challenge, the only way is up.

I think that this is worth 6.15
I think that this will get me 5.55

we'll see in a week

I'm sorry, but I don't see the obsolete here. Nice layout though.

Man oh man, I hope it is the container that is obsolete and not the coffee!!! Can't do without my two cups in the morning and a side of dpc!! I really like this picture! Looks like it belongs on a wall in a posh coffee house somewhere!

Great photo but obsolete! Don´t think so, I would use such a contraption anytime, indeed have something similar..

Good shot. The plain background was used very nicely here. Really clean shot.
