Another play with light

Here is a photo that combines two things that I think make taking an interesting photo easy. One is getting close to the subject. The macro type shot normally makes a nice looking picture even if it is of a dusty fake plant. The second thing that adds to this photo in my opinion is the way the light is coming in from the side. Books talk about it alot for portrait style photo's to help set a mood, but it works equally well for objects.
The settings:
Camera: Canon EOS 40D
Lens: EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM
Exposure: 0.006 sec (1/160)
Aperture: f/2.8
Focal Length: 35 mm
ISO Speed: 800
