This is a bit of the plastic packaging from a set of two of those energy efficient flourescent bulbs for lamps. Photographed while holding it inside my light's reflector. I have 2 different kinds of flourescent lights in there, thus the orange and blue hued reflections. Looks rather watery for a dry shot, and it certainly doesn't look like what it is.

Handheld with my 36mm and 20mm extension tubes on.

PP - cropped, increased saturation, cloned out a bunch of spots (some dust, some water spots from when I tried to wash the dust off, a hair ... dang static), increased contrast, resized, sharpened with noise reduction, blurred a bit more in the background, added border.

I'm not good at the guessing part, is this a part of an engine?

Well, I think the blue area is ice, but I have no idea what the object is that it has formed in. I like the shapes and complementary colors.
