Excellent detail. Your description and then the arrows made me think, they were pointing the way to the future! #10172794

Nikki McDonald 6/8/2012 5:10:45 PM

Cool - great design elements and I love the grainy look. #10173484

Christopher Budny 6/10/2012 5:14:57 AM

Thank you, folks!
Nikki - The grainy look is actually the surface texture of the iPod. I believe the Shuffles currently being produced have a smooth, glossy, color finish; this is an older one, when they only came in "satin" aluminum finish. But this close up, the details of that satin finish are interesting, for sure! #10174726

Beautiful, very simple composition. #10255087

Christopher Budny 7/31/2012 10:59:56 AM

Thank you Terry & BP! I had fun with this composition, arranging it so that the width of blue at right, more or less matched the width of the ipod body on the right of the dial, which in turn seemed to be the same width as the white dial itself. #10255225

Terry A. Stoa 7/31/2012 11:05:00 AM

It's going to be a winner, Chris. Mark my words! #10255236

Thank you both! This was one of the early shots I tried, when I first got my table-top light tent setup. The blue comes from the fabric drape/panel that came with the tent. #10259499

David M. Montero 8/6/2012 8:16:49 AM

I remember as a kid when radios were as large as a piece of furniture - with tubes. Congratulations on your Finalist selection Chris! #10264944
