Challenge: The Egg II (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Location: studio room
Date: Feb 25, 2010
Aperture: 11
ISO: 160
Shutter: 78 seconds

A piece of glass, was placed on two chairs. The chairs being separated, creating a bridge. The egg was placed on the glass. A white piece of background paper, was placed below the glass, on the floor. Camera was on a tripod, with a remote release. A white LED light, was used to light the egg. It also served to create the light trails. The background was created, by lighting the white background. A blue LED light, created the tones. Lots of experimentation, with time and light. But very fun!

Congrats on your HM :) you were posting your score as 6.68 in the forums, surprised to see it end at 6.59 after that many votes. I had a similar drop last 2 days of votes. Still, congrats on a well deserved placement.

I'm guessing these are overlapping blue plates, with white/purple trim, and the top one is tilted for the egg to slide, and with the stripes refracted through the viscous egg white in some areas. Just a guess, but anyway it's a creative and fun image.

I'm not ever completely sure of what I am seeing (other than the yolk) but the colors are fantastic.
