Iím not really into colour, so I was at a loss as of what to do for this challenge.
I printed a blue/orange chequered pattern onto a transparent sheet and sat a clear glass marble on it.
Unfortunately, the marble has quite a few isolated inclusions which I couldnít clone out in basic editing.
Not sure about the reflection Ė I did loads of shots at different angles, getting some with a reflection and some without. In the end, I liked this one the best.


Thanks so much everyone!
I'm pretty poorly today, just got back from the doctors. I have a very aggresive stomach bug which is causing me a lot of pain and discomfort.
This ribbon has given me such a lift, I feel slightly better already ;-)

Awesome image, Irene. Congrats on your ribbon, and hope you are feeling better soon.

P.S. You step out of your box for one moment and someone else gets into it. -> -> ->

One of your water drops would still be the winner, but I love what you've done here, too.

This reminds me of when I was dabbling with ray-tracing, back in the days... I used to wait for hours for pictures like that, glass/mirror spheres on a checkerboard. :)
