thank you for all of your comments. this pic was made with an $11 fiber optic lamp from Spencer's Gifts. the lower right-hand corner is the masking tape that holds the strands together. i kept this in the pic because it made it look like the strands were coming out of a conduit. the lower right side was out of focus on purpose to give an effect of data coming out of the conduit and exploding. this could have been entered in the macro contest, since it was shot with a macro lens, only a few inches away. the upper portion was only there since the rules state the dimensions of each picture.

Kind of a cool shot, I like the color against the black neg spc background. Personal preference - I would have cropped a lot of the lower right corner area out, and focused more on the upper half of the fiber optic strands. lhall

the negative space on the top is not adding to this photo.... and the black corner in the lower right should be eliminated by cropping as well.
cool idea! looks like stars in the galaxy! definately fiber optics are the root of the current technology.. good for you for doing it! I think a little different angle would help this out.

Terrific shot.

I don't know what technology this is but it is beautiful, absolutely beautiful. I gotta know how you accomplished this. Should have cropped a little more off the top - that little empty space adds nothing. Great colors, good subject, great compotision. Really great pic for an 8. PTL

Awesome! Super color and a wonderful capture of a difficult subject.

Great concept! I don't know how you did it but you sure executed the idea well. Colors and light are very good. Good luck in the challenge. Grayce :-)
P.S. I hope you'll tell how it was done.

NIce colors, but I would've cropped the bottom right corner.

Great idea! I like the feel of this picture. One suggestion: crop a little less in the the bottom right corner. Could have looked like a comet. Jacko. 9 Good luck in the challenge.

Nice, fiber optic is very popular this year. 8

cute. at least it's different than the other shots.
11/20/2002 12:32:00 AM
Very good. Better than most as far as meeting the challenge. More DOF would have gotten a higher score.

I love this photo! Great subject for this topic. The strands are somewhat blurry -- maybe on purpose? It might be better if there was more definition of the individual strands, if that was possible. The lighting and colors are beautiful. It's like fireworks!

Could be and advertisement. -7-

Nice, good focus and depth of field.
11/18/2002 04:50:00 PM
Fiber-optic......very neat, very cool. Job well done. Justine
11/18/2002 02:25:00 PM
Great capture. My only suggestion would be to crop it tighter in the lower left (so that the color flows out of the frame) and you have more room on the top and left. karmat

Too Cool Fiber is so awesome!!!!!!!
11/18/2002 12:05:00 PM
Nice shot.

Fiberoptics! Great idea! I would have liked a little more DOF and possibly a tighter crop. Lisa

Nice idea and shot. The composition doesn't strike me too hard, but I like it anyway. :) (7)

I really like this. Fiber Optics comes to mind:) Shiiizzzam

Nice picture. Shame the bottom right isn't sharper.
11/18/2002 08:00:00 AM
OOh pretty!
11/18/2002 05:26:00 AM
Fantastic effect. The black background really highlights the colours and light. Well thought through. 10 :)
