i tried a couple ideas for this challenge, ran out of time, so here goes. i need to score better than karmat to continue to round two in MS fund raising tournament.

i figured i'd create a rainbow in a different sense than the challenge suggested. a bit cliche - but i couldn't get my other ideas perfected - and under the circumstances wanted to enter a strong'ish image...

a glass drink swizzle with a rainbow image i created and printed behind it. 550ex laying down behind the print aiming at the camera fired via ST-E2.

PP: adjustment layers for hue/saturation, levels, and curves. sharpen full res image, sharpen again after resize.

a side note: i tried four different local kitchen stores trying to find similar swizzle sticks, and not one had anything made of glass - never mind similar to this one. not to say it's unique, but i did come home with a cool set of shot glasses, an hour glass type egg timer, a french wisk, two shots of jagermeister, and a very happy dog ;}

Very good. Looks like some kind of liquid oozing down. The refraction is super sharp. Congrats on your ribbon.
