Abstract Challenge #1

Just before heading off to bed last night I thought I would give the challenge a try. Being a man, I ignored all of the instructions. I’ve got some globs of oil in a glass container so I am halfway there. My shutter button is nice and oily now BTW.

I used some dark vinegar and olive oil to add color. I then used a flash with all of the lights out in the dark kitchen. For the background, I used two flat, round, reflective spinner toys. I used the ‘pop color’ setting on my compact camera to make the colors more vivid. No editing was required other than flipping to vertical at Liz’s suggestion.
