This was taken out of my window, through a piece of polished snowflake quartz. I managed to capture the refracted sunlight which gives a splash of colour.

Thanks for all your votes and comments. This is my first entry in a photographic competition, I have only just started in digital photography. I now realise I should have said that the crystal is a snowflake quartz, and the twisty twig didn't really work.

Great title, great shot. It looks like the crestal is dirty though, unless those are imperfections in the crystal itself.

very nice shot! the colors are beautiful. good transparency.
why did you add the dark rod (what is it?). i guess you did it on purpose but i think it's very distracting. it would have looked better without it.

simply put, a very nice photo. it has an interesting composition and is striking. one of my 10's this week. good job!

You're probably getting hammered by the same people who don't see anything transparent in mine either, but I like this a lot!

I really like this shot but I'm not really sure that the curvy twig is adding anyting to it. = 7 - jmsetzler

Where's the lemonaide? Very, very nice photo. Sorry to pick, but what are the things all over the prism? (nicks and chips?) I don't know what the squiggly lines are from, but it does add some cool interest. (what are they??) Photo 9 Transparency 8 total 9 swash

that crystal is great. you may be getting comments that it needs to be cleaned, but i think the texture adds a lot. what i find rather distracting in this photo is that wavy diagonal thing going across the photo. i just can't quite figure out what it is. i'm sure it's important (it's too obvious to be missed while taking the photo), i just don't get it, and therefore to me it's distracting. -- gr8photos (5)

if the crystal was clean it might have more impact.

nice... : )

I'm staring at the photo, I don't see it... I like the idea; not sure about the black line(what is it); wish the crystal was a little cleaner. Nice colors. Sorry, just doesn't work too well for me - maybe if I know what the thought behind this was, I could 'see' it better.

I added a point for the title alone... it made me chuckle!

Hmm.. the crystal is kinda banged up... and whats up with the squiggle? 5
