OK - second attempt, but perhaps as easy to guess as my first try.

Are these the rings of Saturn...or something else?

I don't know what the background is, those crystals are either salt or sugar. Nice job.

Thanks, Cal. Salt it is.

The background is just some scrap colored paper I found in a drawer.

Mike,

As I looked at your shot I thought maybe slightly more light would add to the impact of the shot since it would not only brighten the crystals but also increase the shadow effect behind each crystal.

Aloha and thanks for submitting.

selvin,

Thanks very much for your comments, here and in my other submission/post. I think it would be kind of neat to play around with adding more light.

Heh - the light source for this shot was an el cheapo flashlight that was almost out of "juice." Just adding a couple new batteries might be a good first step in that direction.

Mike
