These are marbles inside of a glass box with the lid lifted. I was searching for something different to shoot, and was pleasantly surprised by the reflective sparks of color that resulted.

Too much noise, whether its from a flash or glares, too busy - Inspzil

Interesting effect with the sparkling lights all over, but I think you shoould have cropped a bit more from the top. The brown background distracts from your subject. -stephan

It certainly looks magical. I wonder how you got the sparkles. DPz

Sharp. Don't have any idea how you did it, but it is great. Like you said. It's magic. Good sharp image with lots of eye appeal. Deserves every bit of an 8. PTL

Too busy... needs a focal point. NIce colours.

Perhaps a bit too much magic. All the starbursts and reflections make for a noisy and busy picture. The result is that everything competes for attention. Would love to see this lit from beneath so that the marbles seemed to glow.

No marble shortage here. :-) Very sparkly!

I like this, but it appears to be sharpened a bit much.

COOL! Good use of light and reflections.

Cropping so as to have the marbles completely fill the shot would have helped I think. Interesting to the eye though.
