Challenge: Abstract Macro V (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: Nikon AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f2.8D
Location: My kitchen
Date: Aug 31, 2014
Aperture: f16
ISO: 320
Shutter: 1/125
Date Uploaded: Sep 2, 2014

This is a clear plastic pencil/pen holder standing in a bowl of orange colored water about an inch high (the water, not the bowl).
I started off using 2 flashes, one on each side of the bowl. Results weren’t very satisfying… After about five minutes the batteries in one of the flashes died on me and I didn’t have any loaded ones in reserve.
Strangely enough, after continuing using only one flash, the results were better. Go figure….
On the morning the challenge started, I checked my score and had, wait for this, a NINE. This nearly sent me and my nerves through the roof….

Thanks SO much for the super comments and score. It’s been a good, albeit nerve-(w)racking, week ;-)

The 6th place image was my personal favourite in the challenge ;-)

Congrats on the ribbon Irene! The bold oranges is one thing that makes this image so visually appealing. Great color and great clarity.

Congratulations Irene! Beautiful photo. I imagined this to be a piece of a car tail light, ha, I was wrong.

Gorgeous and abstract and really close-up. Those gold are really beautiful.

This is great: colours, subject (whatever it is) and the lines. One of my favourites,

This is one of my top favorites... (already voted)

I can not even imagine what this came from so my guessing game has been lost on this one... looks like it came from some motorcycle or something
This is just so vibrant and I love the tone and sharpness to this .. just awesome

I absolutely love this picture and cannot for the love of god figure out what you've taken a photo off :D
The colour, details and the lighting is just perfect! My top pic and the only 10 I gave out! Do have a feeling that I know who's entry this is, should be fun to see if I was right :)

this might be a vase, turned on one side. Looks really stylish and classy. Like the colour and the sharpness.

I have no clue what this is, but like the effect. The prominent foreground reminds me of car tail light from the 50's.
