and I thought I was being creative until I saw this (and EddyG's, and DarkRider's).

Thanks for all the comments everyone. Oh, someone asked about the reflection: the 1's and 0's were printed on transparency paper, creating a shadow on the white background.

Well done on the ribbon! Three submissions, two ribbons, not bad going!

This is one of my favorite photographs of the challenge. I can offer no suggestions for improvement, I can only hope to rise to this level one day.

Beautiful photograph.
The binary background reflection works well here. Nice touch with the laser light.
Definately a commercially marketable shot.
One of my favorites in this challenge ((8))

Amazing, love the binary addition to the surface.

DOF is a little off...I hope that a similer pic in the complexity challenge isn't hurting your score. I would have inverted the pic too so 00111101101's were correct for the effect.

I like the reflection
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Stunning. You get grades of A+ in nearly all areas: lighting, composition, exposure, D0F, presentation (I love the slim Jim look.) Artistically, the way the binary number and their "shadows" merge and converge is a true materpeice of execution. Get ready for the ceremony, I suspect a ribbin is heading your way.

I like how everything in this photograph appears to be floating. Stunning use of color and sharp detail, excellent dof. I usually don't like photos of mechanical things, but this one is an outstanding 10!

Awesome! I think I've seen an almost identical image somewhere before, maybe it's one of yours done in a similar style. Great lighting, the red highlights are cool. Nice sharp image. 9

I looked at this, and looked, and looked. I was about to request a DQ and saw that it had been validated. What a fantastic capture. I hope you'll tell us how you did it! Among my top 5.
