Very cool image

those vivd, high contrast colours along with the distintive shapes from the glass make for a very modern "arty" type shot.

Though you've not actually used external lights (from what I can tell) you have "played" with the light by modifying it with the sweety wrappers, so fits the challenge well.

Thanks very much Ade for the scarily accurate observations and critique of my attempt at something a bit different - much appreciated.

Very clever use of light, colours and glass. Puts me in mind of top of the pops with all those sharp lines and rich colours. Something they did with the logo. We are looking for a challenge with light and this is a great start. You've certainly raised the bar with this image.

Thanks for your kind comments Jane.

I was surprised just how much the textured glass distorted the light and reflections and caused the colours to concentrate along the ridges in the raised patterned finish.

Initially I thought from the thumbnail that this was soap bubbles, but now I can see it's the kind of glass my gran used to have all over her house. Great idea to have the light shining through all the different colours, it almost has a 3D effect. Also reminds me of some Warhol pop art with the colours.

Very sorry for my late comment and so far outside my comfort zone that I don't feel qualified to criticise beyond saying I'm not sure about the black maw in the middle.
But I love the very abstract result and the way the glass has blended the colours giving both shapes and textures.
And my favourite has got to be the three purple monsters with the yellow eyes at the bottom Smile

A very pleasing and colourful abstract. You could change the endlessly colours in Hue and Saturation or by using the Gradient Maps. It is also ideal for playing with the distortion tools.

Have a play you never know what you might come up with. Andy

Thanks for the Hue / Saturation and Gradient Map tips - I will give those a try. Much appreciated Andy, thank you.
