Peacock feathers against sunlight streaming in through dining room window.

[Feb. 27th, 2011 09:15:13 AM]

Not a very good attempt at disquise, as I have a lot of correct guesses. This was an accidential image captured while practicing on a peacock feather in natural light. The background is a ceramic flower pot that was in the background.

Congrats on the yellow! Fooled me. I saw grasses and just assumed grasses. It's fun when you see something you figure is obvious and then are completely wrong. :)

This looks really nice. At first glance it looks like wheat against the sun. But I'll guess it's a feather duster or something along those lines.

My favorite of the challenge, I love how you photographed this to look like grass blowing in the wind. I'm guessing its a feather, most likely a peacock.
