Wow! 48 votes in and a score of 7.1042. I am sure it will fall but I never expected this.

The top sphere is a "friendship ball" or "witches ball" that I have hanging in my kitchen window. Placed on top of an inverted glass and a smaller sphere (that I took out of a hanging garden decoration that I bought only for the sphere a month ago) under the glass. Placed on my trusty mirror.

I took a ton of photos (I have many outtakes) of these 2 spheres and another friendship ball I have. I was editing them and trying to decide which one to enter when on a whim I decided to invert one of them (make it into a negative image). My first reaction was "WOW"......I really liked how it looked. So I inverted a few more and chose my favourite. So glad others like it as well.

VERY well done! Such a lovely balance... and the colors are wonderful... but it doesn't really matter what I think, 'cause I'm not voting this challenge. :)

Interesting set up. Not a fan of angling the photo to make it look better though.

Cool lighting in this photo. I have to imagine that was pretty tricky to get right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/14/2010 10:08:40 PM
Great color in the larger ball and the tilt suits the shot well. I find the pink orb a little distracting but have rated the shot high all the same.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/14/2010 10:05:47 PM
I think this is my favorite picture in this challenge (it helps that I LOVE pink). Really nice job!

07/14/2010 01:21:11 PM
Great shot. I think the rotation of the image is what makes it stand out.

07/14/2010 12:50:16 PM
Love the angle, color combinations are really eyecatching. One of my favs.
