Hi everyone! Thank for the comments especially ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Sirashley - happy to know that I'm his only 10 :D

The background thingies that look like bacilli are multicolored metallic screws. I did some selective desat on the foreground and adjusted the hue/saturation for the background which is light green/chrome originally. There were two sets of lights used here, a led flashlight for the foreground and a table lamp for the background. The latter being my favorite for most of the shots I submitted for the challenges. The screws being elongated and the light that shone on the threads gave the shape and circles of confusion that is seen here.

I thought this was a cool idea (gave it a 7), but the purple spots didn't work for me. How did you make the background?

Love the sharpness and lighting in the foreground. Not sure how I feel about the green bacteria-like thingies in the background.
