I also prefer the b/w, Jason. Looks like white heat. Super image, congrats on the ribbon.

Wise choice on the b/w. I often prefer the colour versions, but not in this case..... well done.

Cool. and congrats
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Congratulations. I didn't guess what it was by a long shot. It was one of my favourites looking through and is really lovely. The colourful version is nice, but this is way better.

Incredible! The Forest of Glerp is correct!

Pretty cool. I like how the spikes look like they are rising out of a white fog. Looks like some kind of kids squishy ball.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2009 07:43:05 PM
Things on a seedpod, maybe? Very attractively processed shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2009 11:24:31 AM
truly microscopic- no idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2009 10:14:26 AM
Looks like it really is glass... Maybe a specialty light-bulb?

fake hair?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/27/2009 12:28:24 AM
A protozoan cilia? haha.... or some kind of fruit?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/26/2009 10:49:49 PM
very nice image, and I have not a clue as to what it is. I will be interested to see how much processing was involved.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/25/2009 11:29:22 PM
I have one of these...is this a light bulb with decorative spikey things on it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Kerplunk! Some kind of liquid? Great macro abstract, and the b/w is a good pick.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

looks like glass sculpture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2009 01:48:47 PM
IMO best in show so far (after 46% rating). I have no clue what it is and it looks good. I'm guessing you might have used a microscope. 9

Can't fool me, that's a Martian cow.
Actually looks like inverted icicles.
