crop, rotate 180, NI, curves, resize, NI, USM.

The fish tank makes yet another appearance. I held the bulb underwater with my left hand and shot the pic with my right hand, with some help from a tripod. I put yellow paper under the tank, and curled cyan paper very loosely around the tank. One strong light from above.

Congtatulations !! Very cool picture :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/05/2006 09:29:03 AM
I think what I like most about this pic is the dropping edges around your fingers which indicate that you are pulling your hand down (and keeping it VERY still) to work with the surface tension of water...

I can't think that that was at all easy....

Truly a masterpeice (of sorts) :).

I get it! What a fun concept and setup. Would've been perfectly in tune with the title if the light filament was a glow, a real thinker on how to set that one up though ;) Great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2006 11:10:23 PM
Pretty funky shot. Looking forward to seeing how you set it up. Bumping up.

This is my absolute favourite in the entire challenge. It's perfect!

Well, ok.. perfect except for that white dot in the water.. on the left. ;P But yes, wonderful work. I really like this one!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2006 12:01:34 AM
I'm really gonna have to get me one of those aquarium things...

Great concept, well executed. I love the use of colour, and the reflection in both the glass and the water surface. Lighting is masterful - I think the lower lighting on the fingers works well.

This is just the sort of "ideas" shot that I love finding on this site.

damn that's nifty. I predict a ribbon (even though I'm always wrong).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/29/2006 03:06:16 PM
Crisp, super-clean photo using a reliably impressive technique. The purpose of it escapes me for now (apart from being satisfying eye candy) but what the heck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/29/2006 01:41:05 PM
Nice clean inverted image. I'd be included to try it sideways. 8.

Pretty cool shot, nothing that rivals Kiwinesses "Zero spot editing" image but it´s enough for a 7 from me.

06/29/2006 07:28:37 AM
I tip that this should ribbon...it is sensational...perhaps a little more of the reflection would have been better, but good luck 9

Nice sharpness on the glass. The fingers through the glass look good. Nice colors. Only nitpick is that the skin looks a bit yellow. I still really like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/28/2006 07:35:01 PM
Perfect! The water looks like fluid metal, the reflections in the bulb are excellent, the light is outstanding... and you actually cut your nails! ;) 10p
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/28/2006 05:36:08 PM
I've always loved the idea to photograph a subject like this (upside down in a aquarium) you did great, but I think I'd crop the yellow line at the bottom.

This looks like it was shot in a fish tank then the image was flipped. I don't know if that is allowed.
