Crystal ball suspended outside. Lots of triangle cuts on this so I thought it would be ideal for this challenge, however the ball is not triangular......we'll just have to wait and see ! It took sometime to get the light to hit at the right moment to bring out the triangles ! This was the best of about 105 snaps ......

You captured the spark here beautifully. I like the off centering too.

Could be better if the crystal was centered just seems out of balance

This has the triangle but reflections could be improved.

this is a nice idea and a good photo. I think it would be better with a different color backround, mayb

What a cool photo! I love all the things reflecting in the triangle, while the bacground is so simple and empty! I really like this one a lot.
