I haven't been able to find my glass stirrer for years. And I found it so I thought I was use for this. Made a background in PSElements 6.0 of RGB dots, place the stirrer in front and shot with camera on tripod using the cable remote release. Should do...well we'll see...but I'm guessing so so.

Camera Raw adjustments in PSElements 6.0.
6....count 'em...6 crops
Layer adjustments for levels, brightness/contrast and hue/saturation.
Adjust sharpness.
Spot edit dust and a few distractions.

Too much of the frame out of focus for me....hard to look at.....but I kinda like it more today. Originally a 4, today a 7. It is very clear and sharp where it was intended.
Looks like a glass swizzle.

Interesting shot. Unfortunately, for me, there was too much OOF and it bothered my eyes.

Nice patterns, but it's very stark. Diagonals abound.

although i usually cringe at the sight of your shots irene, i actually am amazed by this one, just shows refraction at its best and is really crisp on the stirring rod

Lovely shapes, bright colors. I like the distortion of the dots.
