I was bored, I did not go out. I wanted try a new one with the multicolored background of the hand painted paper I bought and also in portrait mode as all the others have been landscape. I bought another sheet of the same pattern of hand painted paper yesterday along with 4 other patterns. I clipped the sheets back to back on a clothes hangar that I rigged over the piece of white poster board across the back of the top of the shooting area. One piece was the back and bottom of the background. The other piece was folded over the top of white poster board. The rest of the set up is bascially the same as in Net Shot Gerbera X ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/354/120/199586.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/354/120/199586.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' except the the box lids were on a slight angle towards me in order to cut down on the light glare from the lights and there are now 4 clamp lamps....I think I used 2 and the desk lamp on other one....lesseee.....yes...that's right. So here you go, sorry it is not original but then I don't see them being done by anyone else....Though Sylvia Rossler did a real neat one with a nylon filament that was quite intriquing to see....here is a link to that: Colorful Reflections . It's sort of close, But not the same. And don't any of you all go bothering her with the fact that they are refractions....just leave it alone.LOL!

Post: Convert from raw in PSElements 3.0 with a +0.33 exposure compensation. Layer adjustments for levels, brightness/contrast and hue/saturation. Crop. Rotate 180°spot edited dust and dreck....got to get a real sensor cleaning soon. NeatImage. Sharpen. Resize. Sharpen.

I like it, it's a bit different take on the typical waterdrop shot. Nice work! Also really like the colour scheme.

Nice idea... but the composition for me is too symmetrical and flat.
