I like the monitor pic, makes more sense. I suggest a non branded monitor however.

This is just an idea, but what about a photograph of MusicBee running on a PC?

Something like this;

while i like that idea, but it will require a photograph of someone's monitor running musicbee, which i am not sure where to get.
:(

well brands are not the issue, but yeah i will like to have a non branded monitor.

However i think a surface pro series running musicbee is the best screenshot than a non branded monitor, as their windows logo at the front is basically the paltform musicbee runs on. but clearly someone needs to provide an image.

I think we can conclude that the democratic approach to this is not getting us very far.

Steven already said he liked the speaker/imac image, but not the nose.

I removed the nose and some other stuff from the original picture.
Not up to professional standards, but if AvikB puts the color gradient over it, I am sure it is more than good enough to use for the website.



edit
Updated the picture, I also removed the sandwich from the computer, and some ugly photoshopping around the plant in the background from the original.

At least for me, it's easy to tell the image was photoshopped, I suggest sticking with the original or picking something else.

Should the MusicBee logo/text on the home page be a little more eye catching? I came up with this, just playing around;

Something like this (but better ;))



If you guys like the idea, I could try and take a better shot (like without the ugly cables), and we could agree on a layout for the MB window.

But would you have been able to tell with the overlay that will be used?

thats look nice, we just need a better angle and a speaker at the side getting most of the focus(like that mac image)

Well, my speakers aren't exactly the high-end type which is why I tried to avoid focusing on them. ;)

A couple of pictures I found on reddit (we'd have to ask permission to use/modify them which I'd be happy to take care of if needed):

i am not keen on having something flashy logo, i want to maintain a much more subtle and elegant design.
