The background is a pebbled glass cutting board laid on top of a cobalt blue glass baking pan, with a sheet of white paper underneath. I tried this with a lot of different lighting, including a bare 150 watt bulb leaning over, which gave the pebbled glass a wonderful champagne sparkle, but it was when I accidentally let the camera's flash go off that I got this beautiful deep blue. I'm thrilled with this color.

Wow, this one really caught my eye. The composition on the corkscrew is excellent, but it is the lighting and background choice that I really noticed right away. It's one of the more unique entries this week for sure. 9

I like this, nice abstact concept. I think it could be even stronger with the background out of focus.
