Fabulous! Since I don't know photography, did you photoshop it also? How did you treat it? Thanks for sharing.

author says:

No my friend.No PS at all.
The set up goes like this...
A mirror,1 flashlight & a external flash.
1 piece of a puzzle.
Nikon D90 with 50mm f/1.8 AF Nikkor lens.
Spot metering
F:11
3 sec exposure
iso 125
Using spot metering the camera gets light ONLY from the spot that you want...in this case the puzzle piece so the b/g gets all black!
Increase contrast 2 in PS & thats all.

author says:

The "hard" part was NOT .
the set up or the IDEA but to get the lighting exactly as i wanted it.
You see the puzzle's surface is VERY very small to manage it.
To small to give the 3D feeling as accurate as possible!
I try 25-30 times until i get it right (for my taste at least).
The light on the right is the flashlight & the one on the left is the external flash.
The problem was the flash cause it had to light the piece in a way that it wouldn't be BOH (blow out highlights) but in the same time keeps it's 3 dimensional view.
