Very inventive. # 2 would have been perfect if the edge of the cd had not been in the picture,

Very creative, Ladyhawk! You have opened a new area to explore. Pic No.2 is brilliant.

Thanks for your comments. As you've no doubt guessed, #1 and #3 have been subjected to a variety of PP techniques. #1 was desaturated, a slightly diffused glow was added and finally the blue color. The bubble effect on #3 is the result of copying the image into a second layer, rotating it 180 degrees and setting that layer at 50% transparency. #2 has simply been cropped and sharpened. I debated whether I should keep the CD edge in the picture and decided I rather liked the curve. The CD and water are both interesting surfaces to work with. As you can see, the reflection and refraction of light create some fascinating patterns.
