Banana Phone

This happens to be my favorite phone at home till date, it is the Bang and Olusfen Beocom 2. I have to say thank you to Kemi Abayomi for helping with this shot. And yes, I am sucker for Bang and Olufsen products :)

cool photo. The last time I checked this is the $1200 phone from Bang and Olufsen, I like it too but its too expensive.
Dotun Ayodeji: lol...Biola, I know what you mean. I have been tempted to put this on ebay to buy photography equipment. Thanks for the visit.

Very very neat phone. The engineers are trying to make phones tinier and tinier, but looks like a few of us still like the feel of bulky, big ones smile I do too
Never seen a phone like that smile
I have never seen one of those before. Fascinating.

You on the B&O payroll?!! Nicely done Dotun, great DOF, very nice central focus, good composition. Neal may be right about a little crop, but nothing too drastic is required. Kind regards, Neil.
What a nice phone ! And a really nice composition Dotun

(I assume you've seen that highly pointless but amusing cartoon)
Looks like you make just a little too much money Dee if you play with stuff like their products. Saying that I do happen to like this shot, has an advert feel to it. smile J
Na you biko !! That phone is tight. Nice shot
Cool looking phone. I like their products

Only the "rich" are suuckers for B&O products, you trying to hint something to us bro????

Apart from that, very awesome awesome awesome shot, love the image, make a nice advert picture.

Dotun Ayodeji: lol...nah Suby. if I was rich I would have a Mark 1Ds II camera just like you instead of my 30D smile As you can see I can only afford their low end products after saving for quite sometime. These guys have items for like 10-20K...hell no, not me smile

Thanks for the visit by the way.
Jeez, you are like my dad. Our house is B & O'ed out.. is that english? Nice shot as usual.

Dotun for me the top of the photo is where i would give it a crop. the phone is leading our eye into the space. where i think if the space was not there it would let my eye concentrate on the phone.

Do not, I repeat, do NOT let Donica see this phone!! smile
Dotun Ayodeji: I will smile
That's a phone??!! First I thought it was a banana. Then I looked better and I thought it was a remote control...
I like the phone; I'm not sure about the flowers in the background, though.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Samira, this phone is also a remote control for bang and olufsen audio and video products. I had a shot without the background flower and it looks very boring in my opinion.
this surely beats the old nokia (banana) cell phone...nice
A nice product shot. The flowers in the background are a nice counterpoint to the technology.

Whatever happened to smaller is better? Looks like a weapon to me smile
You know, I've never seen a phone like this before and we've just had a Bang and olufsen shop opened in town!

I thought this will be a samurai sword, but no it is a phone. B&O can buy the pic for their next brochure.
