A seed pod off a dried thistle.
Shot in a light tent. Levels, sharpen. Maybe a little color...

Wow Alice, this is such an amazing image, both the concept and the execution. Very, very clever.
Did you just play with the WB to get the golden tones?

I still don't believe this - it's wonderful. So glad you decided to share it with Shez so I could enjoy it, too.

What a shot! From the thumbnail, I completely believed that it was a fork and a single pop from a sparkler. I continued to think that even when I loaded up the full image. It took me a moment to realize what I was actually looking at! Love the reflections and the sharpness... this is great stuff.

Of all the fork side-challenge postings, this one strikes me as especially creative and beautiful. It also displays a high level of craftsmanship. Great image.

Pretty. Cool. Really thought it was a "magic candle" (is that the correct term? In german it's "Wunderkerze")

This is great, even after knowing its a seed my mind still tells me 'sparkler'. Nice color and reflection to help add to the effect!
