My uncle is a "glass blower." He spends a lot of his time making spherical, glass balls. Before the glass is blown, he mixes in various dyes and creates air bubbles. The final product is a swirled mass of colors and bubbles. Pretty cool. I put one of these balls on top of a flashlight, zoomed way in, and took the picture. Pretty basic. Very little editing. Border, minor channel level adjustments, sharpen...that's it. I'm not sure how this will do. I have a feeling people will either like it or not know what to think...ultimately, giving me a low score!

Very cool concept, I would have toned the yellow a bit, but it's still great!

An interesting subject to get close too. Lovely curves - the composition holds them well. This seems to have a greenish cast. I think it would be much more engagin brighter and more red and less green and yellow.

Very intriguing....great abstract, I don't have a hint of a clue of what I'm looking at. The array of colors is nice but the dark areas around the perimeter sort of put me off a bit. I wish those areas were a wee bit brighter, particularly in the upper right. Cool image whatever it is.

Very nice change from all the flowers and bugs. I love the vibrant way it jumps out at you. Good job.
