Wow! Thanks to all you voted, commented, and guessed correctly.

What a nice ending to my first full year here at DPC- a RIBBON:)

Asked what's so special about a winning a 'virtual ribbon'; I feel being part of such a large group of distinctive and amazingly talented photographers, it is truly an honor to win!

Some of you recognized this object from a previous macro challenge. Last time, I photographed the outside. This is taken looking into the glass piece.

I figured this was yours after looking at the previous abstract macro challenge. Looks like you found the secret to photographing this since you went from 8th with the last shot to a red ribbon. Congrats!

Oh wow! That's amazing - no idea what it is though!
Edit. Having been through the entire challenge, this is my personal Blue Ribbon winner :¬)

I love the abstract impact of this, the colours too are very cool-9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2007 01:29:29 PM
Unless 2 different people in the world have this same object and they are both on DPC taking abstract macros of it, this would be a wildiris shot. I'll assume it is. If you are not wildiris, sorry! I like your shot from Abstract Macro II better, mainly because it is so sharp. The composition here is good, but the color and sharpness of the other one are better. Oh yeah, my guess. It's whatever you said it was in the notes on the other shot! A bit of glasswork as I recall?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2007 11:52:21 AM
awesome color... fun movement. who knows what it is... doesn't seem to matter! nice shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Ahh yes, stem cell research. Great colors. Love the blue and the composition. The angle is great, and I really have no idea what it is. Nice work. 8

I really like this one. no idea what it is. I love the motion.

Our fantasys are the same! Lovely has an alien feel about it. only thing i'd pick on is the highlight middle bottom. Nice.

06/23/2007 01:04:51 AM
maybe this is the ceiling of the holodec on the enterprize.

06/22/2007 11:45:37 PM
This is a nice use of color have no clue what it is.

Glass vase maybe? Love the repetition of pattern here and these blues are great!

no idea what it is, like the colours and the focus well done > 10

Looks like something I would see while doing acid and listening to Pink Floyd. Other than that, I have no idea what it is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 11:32:29 PM
trippy...i must find out what this is!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 09:26:16 PM
Wow! I'd love to see this a meter square. Gorgeous colours and fascinating textures.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 09:11:36 PM
Really weird, I can't figure it out. I love the blue colors. At first I thought the bottom of a running shoe, but I honestly have no idea. It's probably something under a microscope that no one will ever guess because it is magnified a bazillion times. Whatever it is, it's very cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 04:55:43 PM
wireless Bose speakers? really pretty, really peaceful! 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 03:25:02 PM
No idea but its beautiful.... wait maybe a dish or vase? I love the colors and the clarity... 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 02:53:42 PM
Wow, gorgeous!!!!! I absolutely love the colours and detail in this. It reminds me of this photo: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/559/thumb/401023.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/559/thumb/401023.jpg', '/') + 1) . '. I loved that image in the last abstract challenge and gave it a 9, I will give this a 10 because I think it is slightly better. And since that was a glass sphere that's what I will guess for this. Oh, and I'm adding this to my favourites.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 01:15:16 PM
Love the curves and the shades of blue and purple (nice title, too!). The light in the bottom center is a bit distructing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 12:51:53 PM
Saw this in another macro challenge but I still don't know what it is. Great movement and color.

Looks like one of those cool glass paperweights, but?? Very pretty!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2007 02:21:36 PM
A glass paperweight or other similar glass object? The title suits the image perfectly. I wonder if adjusting the colours to just a tad brighter would work here. Looks almost reptilian in nature. ~7

I don't have any idea. But I love this! It could be a piece of malatora glass? Or maybe a windsock. LOL Obviously I have no idea. ;0)
