This was a last minute submission. Wish I had more time to work on it. I can see several things I would like to improve. I know the technique is not an original idea for this website but this challenge was screaming for me to try it out! A piece of glass was put about 10" above the fabric backround. drops of water were placed strategically on the glass. The "asteroid" is a water droplet that I dragged out with my finger to elongate it. Lighting was a single Alien Bee flash aimed at the fabric from the lower left corner. The backround is just an interesting fabric that I picked up at the JoAnn Fabrics. I was going for the "eye candy" effect! The final processing involved cropping, adjusting levels and contrast, slight saturation and a slight overall adjustment in hue towards the green side. I cloned out some sensor dust and areas of pixel burnout and the final image was sharpened.

This is neat. Software focus enhancement will make this image "pop!"

Well some droplets again... Nice and colourfull. But... to me the focus is a bit of. And...it has been done. Sorry, to score with such an old concept it has to be stunning and needs an original twist.
