I know, I know, you've seen this type of image a million times before - but I wanted to try it for myself! I bent reflective hologram card towards the droplet to see what patterns I could create, and it produced flashlike prisms of colour on the droplet and an extra reflection onto the CD.

It might be a bit bright for some - but I do so love a bit of dazzle! Thanks for looking, all comments welcome.

Apologies - I forgot to tick the box for the larger version...

Neat idea with the holographic card - I must dig mine out and have a go. Having failed dismally many times at this kind of shot I'm now inspired to have another go Smile
