This is a little waterdrop on a CD I've cracked by putting it 2 seconds in the microwave (we used this before to destroy all the data on it) Every cd will have it own pattern. The shot was taken with macro extension rings 5x on my Canon 18-55 lens. No much processing

still love this image. I've tried to duplicate it myself on occasion, never able to get it to come out like this though.

Many thanks for the great votes and nice comments. I just wonder who gave me a 1. Technically it was very difficult the achieve at this macro range. The waterdrop was only 2mm large. I (burned around 10 cd's to get a good one. I used a mirror to reflect the light (bicycle flashlight) on the cd and get the full spectrum of light on the waterdrop. After all it took me a whole day to get this shot. I experimented with coca cola, water, oil, soap, etc...I'll post some outtakes.

One of my favourites. A small niggle is the white spot at the top of the circle - but still one of my favourites.

already voted-

I have no idea what this is, but I love the cool colors.. even though colors are hard for me to tell, I love the blend of these colors because its very soothing..
The details and abstract within the object is very sharp and detailed I am drawn to the details of it.
One of my top favorites, I think this will do well.

There is a very similar shot in ths challenge. It's a waterdrop, but I can't imagine on what surface.

I like it. I initially thought this was another oil & water shot, but it doesn't quite have that look. I also think I see your face in the lower right quarter.
