Neat image.... I think it really is a matchbook.. Looks almost too plastic for that though.. And the bokeh effect is stellar.. Nice work..

Girl Friend got this one... That's a hairbrush.. (I just use my hands... *Shrug)..

I've seen colored pin heads that look like the solid objects. If so, the blurred reflection effect fading into blue is clever and effective.

They do look a bit like matches but that would be too obvious. The bristles of a brush?

I like the colors, i like the composition, the image is quite dynamic. At first sight seems to be some jet fighters...

great use of DOF - amazing how much a macro of a hairbrush is similar to matches

Whoa, if those are the smoke thingees that make the planes emit colored smoke at air shows, then I've got it right. (Yeah, sure) If not, it's just a fantastic photograph of something way out there.

A brush with very shallow DOF. Nice colours.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/21/2009 06:10:02 AM
Just that.

Betting for an hairbrush. Nice composition and use of DOF.

... or the brush off that she needed to regain her independence.

Hairbrush? Great DoF and I like the purple where the red and blue meet. Personally I would rotate the image 90 degrees to the left
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think you're losing impact by having your explosion of color originate from the top left. I think this shot would have had more power in a portrait layout or if you had flipped it horizontally in the landscape layout. I really like the DOF, but it hurts my neck to look at.

...and my guess, brush!
