Nice detail! Some kind of crystalline mineral... could number 5 refer to Boron? Probably not... I like this image all the same!

sugar?

Wow! This is cool. Beautiful in B/W. Looks like some sort of a "futuristic landscape", after a big explosion or so, yet very delicate. I like how it is darker towards the corners/edges. ~9

I have no idea what it is but I love the painterly quality of it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 12:31:55 PM
No idea really but I'm trying to make some guess on every entry so maybe paper or tissue pieces on a backlit object or glass? Maybe paint on a piece of glass?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Haven´t the slightest idea of it - good and creative
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2007 06:50:13 AM
the b/w is definitely throwing me off

06/20/2007 11:33:05 PM
One of my pics at the top!
Guessing salt crystals, backlit, rendered in black/white?
Well done!

Crystals of sugar or salt? Interesting. Like the lighting. Almost looks like a abstract painting to hang on the wall.
