Oh, WOW!! Thanks a million for the comments, great score and the ribbon!
I started off photographing cling foil, then glasses, then an old chinese teapot, more glasses, saucers, cups... You name it, I photographed it. Nothing worked out the way I wanted it to. Hundreds of images later I trashed the lot.
Then I remembered the glass cocktail sticks I've used in other challenges. Stacked them up against an upturned martini glass and ended up really happy with the result.

Sorry, I really can't see how this rather average image did so well. Well done anyway.
06/11/2012 03:13:51 AM
Just my luck you decide to enter after a break of three months! Congratulations, Irene. I think this is more abstract than mine, and you worked harder. (Hundreds of images, whereas I took only about twenty... ;-Þ)
