This was, as the title suggests, naturally-occurring condensation under the lid of a refrigerated container of hummus.

Cyan tint was obtained in-camera using a picture of a bright red object for the custom "white" balance. Deliberately over-sharpened to bring out the tiny white droplets. Wanted to try a square crop, but I didn't figure out how to do that with my new 60D until later.

Rotated 180 degrees, resized, sharpened.

Even with the title explaining it, it's an excellent abstract. Love the light and shadows nuances throughout the image, as well as the excellent saturation.

Looks more random than a pattern...

One of the best titles ever, perhaps the best shade of teal ever as well.

So tactile! I want to run my fingers over it. Truly beautiful bead abstract. Incredible result for minimal.
