This is a Shure 55SH II microphone - the purple color comes from light reflected off of shiny purple wrapping paper. The blue was added with Photoshop as I couldn't figure out a way to do it during the shoot. A last minute entry taken an hour before deadline so I was in a hurry. It's sitting in a lightbox, but I let a little bit of direct light leak through the opening because I liked the hotspot. Now I'm not so sure, because it's blown out a little bit. Live and learn!

Hello from critique club :)

Nice. I believe if you did have everything sharp instead of out of focus area on the right, it would look better.

I like the colors. Very cool colors. crop is ok but I think I would either crop it more on top, or give more space to even top with bottom.

I would give around 7 if I did vote, and I believe 5.7 is about right for overall score. Vignette border and a bit more image processing (not whole a lot) could get you bit more score... then again, it's my personal opinion :P

Keep up the good work, you do have the talent, need some more practice :)

A stumper, so meets the challenge. I like the subject and the composition. Other technicals are good, too.

This looks like an old 50's style mic. The fingerprint helped in that it scaled down the subject. Great tonal values and gorgeous colours.

Styx in their weirdest phase. I like the purple light, and am pretty much clueless on what this is, though it looks like a filter of some kind. Awfully nice and clean housing for it.

I REALLY like this one. Maybe because I'm into retro looking stuff and maybe because of the awesome color scale going across the whole thing. Probably both..
