A very beautiful and intriguing image that captures the eye and makes it wander between the different colored elements of the composition. In my opinion definitely the best of the three in this series. The Raynox macro attachments can really work some wonders, isn't it? Thank you for sharing.

Fun and beautiful image. It absolutely takes me back to my early youth during the Hippy days with images like that created in a similar fashion and projected onto a wall. As well, they would move the sandwich of liquids around so the drops and blobs would be animated. ... and the beat goes on.

Excellent work Paul.

I know a variation of the method using different coloured oils and sitting the bowl on a black surround with a hole for the basin and a light shone through but your use of a CD gives perhaps a more varied choice of colours and compositions for a little less work. A good way to fill the dark winter days.

      I have a few questions here so didn't know which forum to put it under. I am looking to get into macro. Specifically I am looking right now because of a trip to South America and want to capture insects, butterflies, architectural details, food, etc. So a little of everything close up. I have no experience with macro and I'm trying to decide what to get. Being that it is for travel size and weight are important but I want something that will take quality images and allow me to capture what I want. I imagine working distance is important with insect so the 60mm macro may be out because of that and also it isn't 1:1. I don't think I want to spend the money on the 80mm. I would like to keep it under $700 but that is not a firm number if I have enough justification. I have been looking into the fuji 60mm, a rokinon 100mm MF lens, and I also have a canon camera so I have considered the canon 100mm and a sigma 105mm. All have different trade offs from price to size to AF. I am also trying to decide if I should spend a little less on the lens so I can get an inexpensive ring light.
