Nice... but those lightbulbs are nowhere near as ecologically friendly as they'd like us to believe. They all have a coating of mercury on the inside. So, yes, they last longer, but we'll be dumping mercury into the landfills. Nice shot, though

author says:

Actually kyricom, we have a local recycling program for these to specifically keep them out of landfills for that reason, perhaps the program will spread with the growing acceptance of CFL technology.

ooooorrrrrrrrrrr... we could not have massive promotion of a product that contains one of the most poisonous elements on the planet

ooooooorrrrrrrrrrrr... we could straighten the photo? 0.95 is all it takes lol.

author says:

Locks, just because I can see your OCD kicking in....NO! LOL just hold your I-Pad at a different angle and all will be well

EDIT: I really TRIED to straighten the image...but the horrendous coating of heavy metals keeps knocking it off balance...I give up!

good idea. Think the photo could have more contrast and better composition.

author says:

And by better composition you mean??? any suggestions other than that? the bulb, which is the main part of the subject falls in the upper third (rule of thirds) and sometimes for impact the entire subject CAN be centered...I'm interested on a fresh perspective though, what exactly should have been done here?

Don't get me wrong either...I'm not trying to be "Smart"...I find that great suggestions can come from anyone, perhaps a bit more detail and I'll carry the shot
