The pen looks great !!! . But the reflections of the tree foliage is somewhat distracting.

I have to agree with Mal. The pen looks great. The photo is really good. Where I have to disagree with Mal, is that I think it adds to it. The reflection and the colors in the reflection add to the color of the pen. It's a pretty neutral background, but the small amount of differing colors work really well. I like it, but, of course, that's just my opinion. Others will differ and that's good too.

Use a background panel of poster board spray painted with a light grey paint.

I would ask first, what is the purpose of this image?

Photographically, what is the subject of the image? If you're just showing a pen, then the image is adequate. If you're selling the pen, then don't show a prospective customer anything else that would take their eye ( or mind ) off of the pen.

As a photographer and general "image lover", I saw the pen, but the reflections were a distraction. I was drawn away from the pen to see what was in the reflection.

As a picture taken outside, it's a good pic. It is always better, of course, when YOU can control the light completely.

You asked, I responded, just my own .02.... It's a nice pen, though!

Thoughtful pic critiques above - pen is beautiful!

Pic: I guess I'd start with a little cropping:

Best regards, Bob

Well thanks to all with the "inputs" but in all honesty, I was just using the TEST 1-2-3 area to see how well it could upload. Thanks to all for the photo "tips".
