I used Scotch Magic tape for my subject. The tape was folded into loops. Creating a beehive looking puck. I used scissors, to create some cut edges. Camera was on a tripod. Tape was placed on a piece of glass. A blue LED light was used, to bottom light the tape from three angles. Raised sharpness, raised black in curves, resized and converted to jpg for web use.

I had no idea what this was and intended to come back and comment after more thought. It is a really nice abstract.

Creative take on the challenge, Ryan! To some extent, it was indeed a variation on a shot we've seen before. Nothing wrong with that, but I was feeling snarky with my in-challenge comments. We both entered a 3M product, so there must be something to that.

I haven't got a clue what this is! I guess some sort of artsy object with pieces of fabric? Anyway, I like the structure, color and shadows very much. My favorite of the challenge!

I'm now looking at this for the ? time. I can not tell what I'm looking at here. Maybe torn material/scarf with a light behind? It's really very mesmerizing . COOL image here.

Blue. Just about my favorite color and shade.

It's beautiful, whatever it is.
