I thought this was fascinating. I am pleased to see it got the PH blue. Congrats.

This is really well done, from the exacting detail of the center, to the blurred and prism'd fringes. A pleasure to stare at.

Such incredible texture.

It absorbs the gaze like a sponge.

I give this my personal blue ribbon.

Oh this is cool! Almost hurts the eyes to look at it, like one of those optical illusions, but it's neat.

really like this... is that an optical illusion of blue framing?

It's a little hard to look at but it's fascinating just the same. With a black mat and silver frame I'd totally put this on a wall. Nice!

This reminds me of the foam I used for running electrophoresis western blots. I distinctively remember the warped buckyball appearance
