My Canon20d sitting on a little foam stand, mirror in front, yellow board behind held at a 45 degree angle, two lights above, self timer set, bracketed, and this is the result..tried a low key image and really liked it but those don't seem to do well for me. Cropped, levels, curves, usm, sharpen edges, hue/saturation, brightness/contrast.

I'm guessing you wish you hadn't flipped the image.

gave this a 7. it's a technically really good picture, but somehow doesn't feel quite dynamic enough. it's nice and sharp, i like the bottom / corner compostion, and the yellow background a lovely striking contrast to the black of the camera, but aside from that feels a bit flat and lifeless. the presence of the strap lets down the clean line, modern, uncluttered feel of the picture a bit, too. i'd personally had also cropped below the area of red in the top corner; it detracts and there's also a lighter splodge in the top-middle area...
