Pink Aquarius

This photo was taken as homework too. What you are looking at is the fine image inside a glass. We often display this on a stand with lights of different colours underneath it. This was very difficult for me, but also very fun to experiment with. There has been some editing done.

I suspect I am looking at a pattern "engraved" by laser inside a block of glass or plexiglass. In normal light conditions the surface is transparent and the pattern looks "milky white" but that allows someone to add any colour of backgrpund and light and produce different colour versions. Pink and black is a good match of colours. So, well done there. The problem of the picture depends heavily on the artefact itself, its size and its quality of engraving. I don't think the Macrofilters have done an excellent job here. Maybe a dedicated Macro lens would offer you better final image but, then again an issue would be where to focus, it looks you (I hope you had taken the focusing on manual control and) aimed at her arm, I would have aimed her face. Have all of your classmates worked on the same arefact? had anyone produced better results? I suspect that the artefact proved a real challenge to shoot accurately. But then again even the process of preparing yourself to shoot it was a good lesson on its own, so it it was a positive expereince.
