For the PG 101 "What Is It?" theme. And since it's for that, I won't say right now what it is, but what it definitely IS NOT is DD. It's a straight shot.

    WOWZA! Straight shot? Most excellent, Mitch! I'll have to ponder a bit more on what it is.
Hmmm

Cool light, Mitch. My first thought was some sort of oil spill but why it would be suspended above the background like this is beyond me.

Love the colors, clarity and comp. I think it is water (maybe with a bit of glycerin in it) on a piece of glass above a black-and-red piece of paper or something. HTD!

Mitch, this looks like water spilled on a thick glass table top underneath which a dark paper with something glowing red is projected. Thats the best I could think of. IT IS INDEED LOVELY.

Its a great abstract art work Mitch. I would guess that it is water or oil droplets in reflection of light.

OK, I guess it's time to say what it is. It's a crop from an old slide from a time when I was experimenting with setups like this. It's corn syrup on a sheet of glass and the background is paper--I had one sheet of red paper on the bottom and cut the green sheet in a wavy pattern and separated the two pieces and placed them quite a ways down from the glass so as to throw them out of focus. Lit with a couple of photo floods. The only things I did here were to clean up some of the slide scan stuff and a couple of distracting thingees, crop, and boost the color some.

This is cool Mitch .. I was guessing along the lines of the others but thought oil rather than corn syrup .. I love the centre shape which looks like a dolphin to me ~ great theme entry!

That's fun, Susie, that it seems like a dolphin to you. Somehow in my particular dream, it looks like a dog chasing a tadpole. LOL. And, BTW, congrats to all who thought glass plus water or oil or like that, because that was very close.

A dog chasing a tadpole... oh wait a minute you just revealed it... but HONESTLY, that was going to be my guess!! Just kidding, I was thinking more along the lines of UB :o) Fantastic work, Mitch!

I thought it was oil that made it look dark and under was the red. I have done some drops on glass and captured the flower or whatever, but this is most unique Mitch

I didn't look to see what it was before I guessed ... I'm thinking water droplets on a glass-topped table with something red underneath. OK, now I've read what it is--very cool! Big congratulations on your finalist, Mitch!!
