Image of a multicoloured slinkey--an unexpected find when searching for something round to photograph. This was taken against a white foamcore board, and the color was enhanced somewhat in Adobe ACR and with an adjustment layer using the channel mixer. This is one of a series of images shot for a gallery showing. Once I started taking shots of it, I realized there was a great deal of potential in the graphic structure and colours.

Not sure how this fits the theme, but I liked the shape and colour.

Normally I hate big frames like this but here it complements the shot in my opinion. Also love the coloring in the shot, this would look great up on a wall with the same framing going on.

Beautiful colors and composition. But is it an unexpected find?

Doesn't seem to meet the topic well. Nice picture though.

Border overkill? I am not sure that i would classify this as an unexpected find when this is what slinkys do.

good picture but the border ruins it for me
