BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner

- Bending Light -

I was taking macro shots of the reflected light on a music CD and it was kind of cool to see how the rays of color would change and move as I selected different points to focus on. The light would bend and move up and down the CD as I did this. This is one of the images I came up with.
