Wish it was an advanced editing challenge so that I could have cleaned up the image of the dirt spots a bit. Looks a little untidy. Still have not perfected the best way to do this shot better.

Oh! & why the high ISO3200 used ? I was just plain lazy.

Great take on the challenge. There are a few "spots" that would love to have seen removed, but I know you're working within the strict confines of Basic Editing (so no points off for that). Very cool image.

There's a study program in Norway about paper clips. They would like to see this... ... ... ... Only joking! Anyway, I like this photo. Especially how the paper clip brakes the pattern and the great lighting.

I sugest you look more closley at the other images in past comps that have done this before. There are quite a few bits of dust distorting the white lines both around the clip and in the rest of the photo.

Great shot, few minor imperfections that you could have got rid of if this was not a basic challenge

Archimede's buoyancy :) The picture is perfect but for the small pinches in the liquid, but regardless it's inventive and very well done. Congratulations!

Nice macro, and good attempt at recreating previously done entries. Unfortunately I have a feeling since most voters have seen those shots it is working to a little disadvantage for you

this has been done better before, too much particles in the water

great composition, and nice use of metallic colors, not entirely on topic

Mesmerizing. Very creative, excellent execution. Love the tiny tinge of gold from the clip. Wish you could have cloned out the little imperfections, but front page for sure. No vote.
