I see one circle and numerous spirals and "swishes". The circular shape qualifies it for the challenge.

This appears to be a China plate or something similar. The lighting and exposure are excellent. I assume this is cropped due to the square aspect of the image. Since it is cropped right at the edges of the object, composition is not a factor.

Now, how about telling us what it is and how you took the photo.

Since, by your own admission, this is a manipulated image, I am afraid it does not qualify. For discussion and critiques of digital manipulations, may I suggest the "Digital Art" forum, a couple of doors up the street in the forum menu.

You've got me curious, now. I think PSP has this function. I am wondering if it can be "reverse engineered" to get the original image or something close. I am going to try it.

(edit) I tried it and it didn't work! The results were horrible!

Alex,

I agree with Cal, the manipulation of the photo to create a circle is not a part of the challenge. At first I thgouht you were reproducing a Escher work.

That said it is a very interesting effect.

Aloha
