Lava Lamp in front of my Apple 20" iMac display with iTunes visualizer running. Post processing steps included conversion from RAW (increased exposure), despeckle with Dust and Scratches filter to eliminate some specks. This worked surprisingly well - the specks were gone entirely, and it also softened the background a bit without affecting the sharpness of the lamp. Excellent filter for Basic Editing! Cropped, boosted hue and sat, enhanced contrast with Curves. Other minor tweaks.

I would have liked this better with a simple background to really draw my attention to the lamp.

I really like the contrast between the smooth shape of the 'lava' and the jaggy lightning. There is something about this shot though, perhaps the focus is a little soft, that keeps me from saying 'Wow!' - 6

Too messy for my simple taste. Green and blue go fine together though. 4.
