Hmmm...don't know how this will do so here goes. Screen attached to my computer tray over my desk and attached at the bottom to a white box lid with office clips. Lit with two clamp lamps each with two a 100 watt bulb and one desk lamp with a 60 watt bulb from above. Sprayed water on the screen and shot several areas and picked the one with the best reflections and least of amount of black background (note to self....DO NOT use the black background for this next time). Shot in macro mode with a 10x close up filter.

Post. Slight distortion adjustment to try to straighten the screen. Slight barrel roll distortion correction for the same purpose. Auto levels. Layer adjustments for brightness/contrast and hue/saturation. Cloned out some...OK A LOT of hot spots off the screen and in the other areas. USM. Ran through NeatImage. Resize. USM.

this is some serious eye-candy. the detail you have caught in the droplets is absolutely incredible. i'll be surprised if this isn't on the front page when this is over. good luck!

great bokeh, just too much going on in the foreground.

Great use of color and design. And, yes, bokeh too.

I've looked at either this or a very similar image recently in someone's portfolio. I don't know if that was yours or not?

The short definition of Bokeh from KenRockwell.com, which I am using for voting on this challenge: "Bokeh describes the rendition of out-of-focus points of light." Is the subject enhanced by the bokeh of the background? Absolutely. Great image in all aspects.

Awesome effect and great twist on an old technique. My favourite so far (10)

Striking as hell, but too diffuse an image, in terms of visual direction, to really please me.
