i was sorting through some older files and found this one... i had just gotten my Nikon 6T close-up lens for my FZ20, and was trying it out. it was about this time of year, the weather was crappy, and i was stuck photographing things indoors. i'd taken a shot of one of those little styrofoam fruits they use to decorate wreaths and the like with... the ones covered with little colored bits to look like they're coated in colored sugar crystals... anyway, i cropped it a bit, then used Irfanview's "edge detect" function, bumped up the contrast and saturation a bit, and this was the result... as they used to say when i was in college, "whoah! psychedelic, dude!!"

That's a really cool effect. It's very organic. Reminds my of the compound eye of some insect, kind of.... what ever you did, it worked and I like it.

Yeah, man, psychedelic is the word, man. Far out... Turn on, tune in, drop out. Peace, man.

When you say "acid" - (I´m not a chemist) - Do you mean something like LysergSyreDietylamid. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

The picture makes your eyes roll...
