It took some shots to get the logo like I was thinking, spent lot of time adjusting the camera on the tripod to get the angel correct. When that was done I turned on the KitchenAid and took the picture. Reason why I turned it on was because I really want to add some motion to the whipper inside the bowl. Here below you can read how I processed the image.

If I were to try to use one word to describe this image, it would be "polished." It is very professionally done -- good focus, details, etc. and would make an excellent advertising image for KitchenAid, I think.

The focus is located on the exact point that the eyes first go to in the image, and though the rest of the image is sufficiently "blurry" it is okay, because the eyes and see (and rest on) what they need to.

The blue hues don't do much for me, in this image, but it is not distracting enough to suggest anything else, either.

Lit well, and the point of focus and angled composition works for this image, IMO.

A simple idea well shot! I like it!

I like how you can see the texture and the shiny metallic parts. 8!

Good focus on the emblem. Unfortunately, there's nothing very exciting in the image.

This image really looks like it could be on an advertisement for Kitchenaid - nice job with lighting and duotone. 7

i like the focus on the very front bit, and the texture and moody feel. the subject isn't very interesting to me, though. it looks like sort of a variation on a plain-jane product shot, i think. i wonder if there's some way to work in any additional elements?...
