Already gave this the highest score possible, but I wanted to let you know this gets my vote for "best in show." I recognize that the impact of this photo relies heavily on post-processing, but it is beautifully done. (Now, if I learn later that this is a special one-step filter, I may be less impressed!)

One of my faves of the challenge. I love the gold metallic tones and the clarity on the bulb is amazing. Love the kaleidoscope of reflections too.

Excellent detail with a beautiful reflection and/or refraction, but maybe too processed.

Really really like the PP here. As such to make the clear lightbulb look metallic. Very cool.

I'm not usually keen on heavy HDR stuff, but something about this is really nice. It has a certain silkiness to it.
