I'm very pleased with how this shot turned out. 3 paperclips taped on a pole with castor oil on them forming the drips. 4 highlighters in the near background making the images in the drops. Took 120 or so of these. I like the ones where the clips are silhouetted. Also used one 120W halogen cliplight and a black cloth for background. I can't wait until this challenge starts. This is sure to be in the top 100!

Fun image, inspzil. Very creative. Like the silhouette of the paperclips and the colors are indeed scab-labby. Bet lots of us are running out now to buy Castor oil :) Congrats on ribbon.

Now, I get it. Very colorful and imaginative shot.

Very intriquing photograph! Colors and shapes add up to an interesting and engaging abstract.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/15/2003 09:59:17 PM
Ok, I'm guessing another winner here! The idea has been done, but this does look sensational. Leaves you guessing for a while as to what it all is, but you get it in the end :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/15/2003 12:35:19 PM
Beautiful. The colors are very vivid and highlight the paperclips even more. The refraction in the four perfectly formed water drops is awesome. This is a top class photo which will surely earn you a ribbon - 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2003 01:50:01 PM
This is a REALLY cool abstract photo. Very unique idea and that scores points for me. The paperclips and drops are nice. I like the colors. They are brilliant Good job 8

Fabulous intensity of colour.....just one tiny thing....that little streak of pink in top right corner distracts the eye from the central image diluting the impact....cropping so that the image was dead center would sort it.....if I had voting rights it would be a 10.....it's 'art'

very nice this may be your best photo yet. i like the way you use your imagination.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/13/2003 02:35:23 PM
I love this photo. This photo makes me think of office in a colorful way, instead of a drab, dull way. This is one of my favorites this week. I also love the fuzziness of the highlighters in the background, but then in the water drops, you can see them clearer. And the dark outlines of the paper clips! Wonderful idea. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/13/2003 02:26:45 PM
Wow. A 10. Gorgeous focus (both the sharps and the blurs - those markers in the background look like neon tubes!), and lovely high-contrast lighting.

06/13/2003 12:14:27 AM
I love the colors, beautiful...not to mention the reflecting drops...

Interesting idea. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/11/2003 03:36:03 AM
The concept of the glass and the backgroud have been applied alot here, but u did a great job, because i have never seen such a beautifull color combination. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/10/2003 09:51:52 PM
Cool.... Nicely done! Very bright & soft colors with excellent sharpness on the drops. (A little over-sight on third drop?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/10/2003 09:11:59 PM
Very nice use of many elements in this shot. Good use of silhouette. I wonder how this would look with some diagonal composition. 8

Good entry! One of my favourites. One tiny nitpick: the small reddish shadow to the top right, it would be great if it weren't there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/10/2003 12:10:08 AM
Yeah, nice shot. This is a very cool alternate idea to the reflecting drops on glass pics we have seen. Excellent, and must have taken a while to get the drops right. 9.

Extremely well done. Creative, good graphic image with eye-catching saturated colors. Very "officey", as well as interesting to look at. 9
