Probably most of the people will think it's a straw, that seem's like a logic explanation. But, it was actually running tap water, the backdrop is a colourful plastic sheet which you put under the plate while eating (I don't know the exact english word for it). Hope I will manage to confuse some of you out there!

Thank you very much for your votes and comments, it is my best place in a challenge so far, so close to ribbon! So many comments I've never received before!

Glass rod?
02/27/2011 07:19:20 PM
Straw? Love the colors.
02/27/2011 05:45:51 AM
glass pipe?
02/26/2011 09:28:00 PM
I guess it's a straw. Your BG and composition are killer.
02/26/2011 03:19:41 PM
Is it a straw?
02/25/2011 11:18:01 PM
02/25/2011 05:06:39 PM
The stem from a glass or just a glass rod.
02/25/2011 03:35:20 PM
could this be a stir stick (glass) that is refracting the pattern behind it?
02/25/2011 12:02:27 AM
It looks like a straw, but that would be too easy
02/24/2011 11:55:33 PM
Candy stick

I'm guessing a plastic straw..

Guess: a glass rod.

I like the colors you chose. Nice and soothing.
02/23/2011 10:15:30 AM
How about a glass drink stir-stick in front of a spectrum of colors? Clean image, too!
02/23/2011 02:22:02 AM
i like refraction tricks. This one's good
02/22/2011 09:02:14 PM
A straw!
02/22/2011 08:57:13 PM
looks a lot like a straw nahhh could it be that obvious? tell me i'm wrong!
02/22/2011 08:46:07 PM
Iím going to have a couple of guesses with this one. Either a coloured straw that you have produced a complementary background for or a glass tube reflecting the background colours. Probably wrong on both counts.
02/22/2011 11:17:29 AM
A Straw.

Great colours, is it a straw?
02/21/2011 03:42:04 PM
A straw.
02/21/2011 03:38:15 PM
It's a very beautiful image. The sunset gradient in the background is lovely. I like the diagonal lines running across the horizontal colors. I'm guessing it is a glass rod.
02/21/2011 01:30:54 PM
I'm guessing a glass instrument of sorts, possibly a glass stir rod such as the ones that come in margarita/drink sets, held over a rainbowish thingamajig. Nice pastel colors, and interesting how the lines are perfectly parallel within the glass while running at an angle to it physically.

02/21/2011 11:52:13 AM
Oh how cool!!!!! A glass straw that is refracting the colours in te background.
02/21/2011 08:35:48 AM
One of the few nice pictures.
02/21/2011 06:48:15 AM
knitting needle - like the gradients you've added.
02/21/2011 01:23:18 AM

02/21/2011 01:10:08 AM
