wow..first time I am seeing a science photograph :)

Did you do this at home? :)

I was wondering how this is done and trying to figure it out but no luck! Very well done!

I like the face the pyramid is making

I like the lighting and the feathery smoke like strands around the pyramid. (Although I thought the feathery strands on top of the pyramid were a bit odd.) But I thought this was a perfect entry for the challenge.

Cool photo, but not crazy about the swirly texture in this case.

Very cool!! I love that the pyramid looks like a dude with scraggly hair and glasses... Or, perhaps it's a good Rorschach test.

I'm sure this will get some good scores (including a 7 from me as it is a very engaging image with good technical aspects), but this seems to be more about the prism and the smoke than it is about the actual source of the light.
