Post challenge:
Thank you so much for all your votes and comments. It was a fun ride throughout the week. Starting at 6.5 and then bit by bit moving up.
Some of you asked how this picture was taken.
I have a crystal ball with air bubbles ‘frozen’ inside. Here a picture of a previous shot.

The shot developed through 6-7 phases to the point you can see.
I created one page filled with small little diamond shapes and wrapped it around the crystal ball. I had to diffuse the light through 2 separate layers (umbrella and white diffuser) to not blow out the whites while keeping a strong contrast.
Once I was at this stage, it only took about 30-40 different angles to find the one I submitted. Actually I had 2 alternatives. Here the alternative

Eventually I went with the majority vote of TEAM GERMANY.
Thank you again, I enjoy this site tremendously and all the participants with their different POVs.
