Among The Stars

Is it safe to come out from behind the settee, oh yes, a bit quieter today :)

I really was blown away by the reaction to the last pic, so thanks everyone.

 

Something really simple this time, though the effect is quite interesting. I was going to use it with the Pringle tube again, but it looks better without.

 

This is some gift wrapping left over from christmas. Its a metallic paper which is attached to the lid of a box.

I noticed that it had a similar effect to when you shine a light onto a CD/DVD in that you get the rainbow clours depending on the angle of light.

If you look at the full size version, you can see that it is made up of lots of little squares of shiny material, which is not obvious until magnified by the camera.

Had better mention, this is straight from the camera except resizing and adding the border, it really didnt need any extra help from photoshop, LOL.

 

Of course, I couldnt just take a straight snap, as will become clear in the setup, click on the pic below.
