A Rubiks cube dropped into a fish tank. Two off camera flashguns were used to the left and right, one had a diffuser. The resulting shot was fairly vibrant, so I had to adjust the colours quite a bit in Photoshop to get that pastel look. I'm a big fan of David Nitsche so the inspiration came from his work...although it's not a patch on anything he's done. Hoping for a score above 6, fingers crossed. :-)

So close to a ribbon, 0.0536 to be precise. I'm still pleased to come 4th. Thanks for all the comments.
