Blown glass flower turned on its side with a small halogen light very close to the top.

After shooting several different possible candidates for this challenge I finally changed my set-up with the glass flower & found something that looked promising.

Really thought this would do even better than it did - but not really disappointed as I know I'm improving overall if I can score two 6.x entries out of the last three...

Really hated the title within 5 minutes of the voting start :~) Oh well... Here are couple alternates I had:

This is a really great effect. I think it would have done uber better in the center challenge. I don't see a clear pattern.. but it is a fantastical image.

This is a really neat shot to look at; I honestly have no idea what it is, but it's a nice artistic photo. I like the use of two primary colors (plus shades of these) in the gold and the black. Really neat shot.
