Talk about procrastination. I’ve been meaning to upload this for a while now. Today I realised how long that ‘while’ has become. The original image is dated 31st May 2009. Bah!

Anywho, comments on yesterday’s “Fish Oil View” made me look for this shot.

V1 is cropped. V2 is the original. Both processed with a 10% increase in Contrast.

Here’s the story: There I was, facing the living room window (the same window in yesterday’s V4) finishing off this (plastic) bottled green tea or something. As I pulled away the bottle I glimpsed something interesting. I peered into the neck of the bottle and noticed the abstract of greens from the garden outside. I rinsed out the bottle and let it dry. The next day, I got my A630, pressed the front of the lens barrel to the bottle neck, and took the shot.

I know the title is a bit of an environmental oxymoron – “green plastic” – but hey…literary licence Wink

Well I've not seen this done before, and there's no end of things you can poke your camera through. Grin Great imagination. This makes a super abstract and I like the way you've put the subject off centre.

Difficult to chose between the two here Andrew, I suppose version one has slightly more impact so I will go with that, clever work.

I think you have discovered a very cheap filter here Andrew.
Unless that green tea was that organic stuff,in which case it would cost a fortune !!
Clever shots here.
