Radio Heaset

It's been awhile since I've posted something of interest here. This is a radio headset I bought so I can listen to music as I mow the lawn. I needed to add some more images of products shot on white for my portfolio so I took advantage of the new purchase. I borrowed my friend's Phase One with 60MP back and 80mm lens for this image. Post processing was done in Adobe Photoshop.

The camera, no surprise here, produces amazing detail and sharpness. The fade in the reflection is what really makes this shot appealing to me.

Thanks for looking, Erich. I appreciate the comments.

I think that may be an optical illusion as the reflection is in camera, not faked in post. Thanks for commenting though. ;)

First, I don't get the 'smart ass' vibe from you so no worries. :)
Second, I truly believe the only dumb question is the one you failed to ask. That's why we share here. :thumbup:

The short answer is, if a client want's something fixed, it gets fixed. They're the ones spending the money after all.
The long answer is a bit more involved. Depending on the overall budget and intent of the final piece, if I felt the request was nitpicking I would try to dissuade the client from making (what I would consider) minor corrections that the majority of people would not notice. If the piece is to be a hero shot and lots of time, money and resources went into the production, no question, it would get changed.

That said, I still don't see anything off with the reflection. But then I have been staring at this for the past week or so.
