    u just washed it?

    photography wise, lighting kinda wash out for the whites, and the background show distinct pixelation meaning, your paper isn't smooth. should be darker, lightsource should be softer and wider

    as for model, very very poor job done... still can see cut marks everywhere, no paints and stickers, very dull.

    yeah lukman,
    should work on the model.
    cement the parts and then clean up the spruce marks with a nail file or fine sandpaper.
    run a panel-line wash to add dimension to it.
    i understand this is the NG 1/144 Buster, its really a cheap kit, go for the HG 1/144 Buster.
    It should look slightly better with more poseability and without too much stickers.

    on lighting, i agree with Del_CtrlnoAlt.
    Probably you can try bouncing the flash of the ceiling (white ceiling), might yield better results.

    keep up the effort dude!

    to add,
    you have got great pictures in your photoblog!

    I think his trying to do hard lighting from an angle as such distinct shadowing and bright surfaces. I think its the model that makes the picture look weird. Did you sprinkle water on it or smth? Personally I think the problem of this picture lies with the model which is not very pleasing closed up. Thats just me though...

    Anyway is that a orginaly UG model ? doesnt look like it as there seems to be a lack of joints...

    from the size of waterdroplet, i think might even be a gashapon...

    No comments on the photography.. as still very new..

    But the model..

    1) No panel lining.. which does not give u depth
    2) Water droplet? I believe this is a 1/144 scale.. with the water droplet that large.. x 144.. it a river puddle liao. So it is not realistic to scale
    3) No clearing of seam lines
    4) No sanding of sprue marks
    5) From the sprue marks.. it seems that u either twist and not cut or cut too close
    6) This does not look like a bandai kit.. its some China brand right?
