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.

Exif: Model:


Vicki L. Filippin November 30, 2008

WOWZA! Straight shot? Most excellent, Mitch! I'll have to ponder a bit more on what it is.
Hmmm #1043692

Melissa Olsen November 30, 2008 whatever it is fantastic! #6829618

Nikki McDonald level-classic November 30, 2008

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. #6829638

Michelle Alton November 30, 2008

Unbelievable work. No idea what it is, but I love it! #6829650

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe November 30, 2008

Beats me! I love it anyway, no matter what it is! #6829674

Katarina Mansson November 30, 2008

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! #6829675

Judy A. Lawhon November 30, 2008

What ever it is, its really cool, Mitch!! Great job!! #6829727

Renata Gusciora November 30, 2008

Unique!Intriguing shot,Mitch!:-) #6829772

Melinda F. Schneider level-classic November 30, 2008

I agree with Katarina. And I love anything with water!! #6829806

Joy Rector November 30, 2008

don't know but love the shapes #6830021

Dr Silly level-classic November 30, 2008

I agree with Katarina. :O) #6830053

Christine Czernin level-classic November 30, 2008

Whatever it is, excellent color,pattern
and clarity. #6830277

Usman M. Bajwa level-classic November 30, 2008

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.

UB. #6830462

Pat Gamwell November 30, 2008

Incredible shot of ???! LOVE it! #6830511

Ron McEwan November 30, 2008

Its a great abstract art work Mitch. I would guess that it is water or oil droplets in reflection of light. #6830668

Kerry Hill November 30, 2008

This is so beautiful, Mitch!! Excellent detail, colour and clarity!!! Awesome image!! #6830802

Mike Clime November 30, 2008

Cool capture, Mitch! #6830852

Mitch Spence level-classic November 30, 2008

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. #6830864

Susie Peek-Swint November 30, 2008

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!

Mitch Spence level-classic November 30, 2008

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. #6831020

Susana Ms Heide November 30, 2008

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! #6831368

JO ANN CLEVELAND November 30, 2008

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 #6831798

Kitty R. Rodehorst-Hanna November 30, 2008

Colleen Farrell December 21, 2008

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!! #6921816
