This is a paperweight that has pebbles and air bubbles in it. I put a rainbow light behind it and no other lighting. In Camera Raw, I only cropped and chose the auto settings. Back in Photoshop, I chose Adjustments, Highlights and Shadows...Shadows at 0 and Midtones at 25. Then Unsharp Mask.
I had so many other Macro shots...it was hard to decide what subject to use.
