For anyone interested, I used a black light to intensify the whites/blues on this in addition to my moving flashlight through colored water.

This has the feel of a real high tech illustration. That's a good thing methinks. I like the way the white piece look. The clear pieces are always more of a challenge. You did pretty well with this one. The blue tint is a good illusion as it makes them look clearer.

Very nice picture, but I can't see the "movement". Seems like static lighting rather than moving light or a build up of light from a long exposure and different light sources.

Looks like a ghostly game of chess. Love the colors. Good Job!

Nice reflection, but not much else of interest here.

Really nice! And the reflection on the wall adds interest. Should have cropped about 1/4 off the top though.

Nice shot, it's a bit too bright for me. I like the frosted glass pieces, but the ones in the from are a bit harsh.
