I know this has been done before, just not by me. I used a strobe under a table, bounced the light off a blue back board. The lamp was on it's side on top of the table with a black binder over the top of the bulb to prevent any light reflecting on to the bulb. The crop isn't hiding any reflection, just liked it.

Nice picture - reminds me of one of the 'elements' challenge ribbon pictures.

Impressive. I have some doubts that it fits the spirit of the topic since the external light source seems to be upper right. But the detail and composition are exceptional. Maybe a 10 but marked down for topicality.

I see no evidence of backlighting in this photograph

Beautiful shot. The backlight was done so well that it is actually hard to tell that it was backlit at all. I think it is that specific thing that really makes this awesome. Solid 9!
