Could they have had a photographer shoot the picture atleast? I mean lightsource in the background? Spot light off to the right not even lighting up the side of the case we are seeing so its all in the shadows.....

The monitor im on is not calibrated so Ill hold off on color correction analysis for the moment but it looks a bit pink.

Really crappy method for blowing out the background they couldn't even get the surface it was on out of the shot. At least throw a 2 inch cube under it get it off the surface a bit.
