A slice of orange cut in half and placed on a mirror. Added a bit of "juice" to the edges of the orange. Placed a large piece of blue mat board above the set up to reflect blue in the mirror.

Connie, your imagination really inspires me, but I can't come anywhere near the things you think of or take. They are just magnificent. This is truly amazing.

Very cool photo Connie, and in reading the caption, it sounds like it was a lot of work to get the photo. (I consider that a lot of work, maybe it isn't much for you :). It paid off though- great photo.
