I'm very happy with how this looks. I think the reflections make this a fun photo. Enjoy!

POST: Natural Light explained: the common environment for this bulb is inside the house where it is used to light up a room. Inside the house it is dependent on energy. But outside the house it’s cut off from the power source. So thanks to natural light, the glass glows and the “room” it brightens (or reflects) is the world it lives in (and that includes the house lol).

Thanks for the votes!!!! :D

Just saw this Michelle (was away on vacation),

Great shot, like the background and the crytal ball efect this gives. The reflection on the landscape is all the money!

Congrats on your ribbon, Michelle! It's always fun to champion a photograph and then find out later the photographer is one of your online friends.

I spent a couple minutes playing "find the photographer" in the reflection, but I don't see you, either.

Woot!!!!! Look at you ribbon girl. Great shot and the way you have combined clarity inside the bulb with a wonderful reflection on the glass is awesome. A great idea brilliantly delivered and thoroughly deserving of the ribbon

Nice details. I like the greens in the bulb but would prefer a less suburban reflection to go with the natural light theme.

Really cool reflection shot. The only bummer is how apparent the photographer is.

Love the reflection and detail in this, one of my top 5
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Just an idea... to really enforce the idea of "natural" light, you might try to get a truely "natural" reflection on the blub, i.e. without man-made buildings. This is a nicely done image though!

Love the reflection...nice shot
