good photo, bad stock photo.

I could see this being used by a company. Not sure why they would want an image of a syringe in a glass though. Personally I like the image, good composition on the page. 8

Gorgeous image, very creative and oddly beautiful. Don't know that this is "stock", but I'm loving it. Front page.

I really like the effect here with the water magnifying the syringe. might deserve a better title though

Very cool use of the refractive properties of water. Magnifying that portion of the syringe adds a lot of interest. I like the light on this, and think it could do well as a stock photo.
