My neighbor actually called me to tell me this was on their front stairs railing on a foggy damp day (last saturday). "We have something you might like to take a picture of" ... so thanks to Matt, Pat, Emily and Lucy ,my reversal ring on my 50mm and my patient wife, dog and baby Ada of course.
Shot is RAW - flipped curve to be reversed in RAW editor for CS2, crop and rotate, Noise Ninja, slight overall Hue/Sat.

This should have ribboned..... DEFINITELY.....
Wonderful patterns, yet simple in design.
Almost metallic, but still delicate to look at.
I LOVE this so much it has to go into my favorites..... Right now.....

Should have ribboned. No doubt in my mind. Didn't vote this one, or I'd have given it a 10! Superb image.

I thought this one was going to ribbon, I really liked it myself. I thought it was quite different. Your outtake is pretty good too.

One of my 2 favorites of this challenge. Subject works very well as a negative. Very nicely executed. Good luck.

Wow! I wish this picture was not so good. I gave low grades to the "easy" ones like b&w, sepia and such, but this one, I just can't help myself. 10 dang. How did you put the water on the web?

This is cool! The negative version seems really smooth and elegant. The gradient background has been more or less the same in the original, I guess? The drops look cool at least.

I didn't want to believe this was a negative, so I saved a copy and inverted the colors - WOW! One of my favorites at the top! Well done.

Now this is the best negative image I have seen so far and I've voted on almost 200 entries so far. Looks like small balls of liquid metal suspended from fine wire. Great example of a negative image, best of luck! 10

Look forward to seeing how this was done. Great lighting!

Very nice, hardly looks like a negative (but I know it is). Love the orbs of water and the tinges of green and purple in them.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 10:11:30 PM
I think this is the best I've seen yet. Like the simplicity and the shapes. Good luck.

amazing as a negative
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think this is a lovely shot, but I'm not sure it meets the challenge of 'working well as a negative'. Great piece of art though.

04/26/2006 11:20:24 PM
Yes, this is good.....

I dont know if this really worked as a negative but I loved the photo.

Very cool shot. The lack of color (or at least intense color) does this shot well. Great shot. Bumping up.

This is great! I like the pearl coloring effect. A little out of focus on the left but overall, very nice!
