Let's Play A Game

I'll leave a comment at the end of the day to say what this is. In the meantime let's play a game. Who thinks they know what this is?

PP: Curves, Saturation, Levels.

You took a trip in the space shuttle and decided to try some gravity free photography with water droplets. Or is it three trees? Whatever it is it is moving. Cool shot.
Oh I know! It's intentionally out of focus to confuse us! smile

I think it's a water droplet on something, but I'm still trying to figure out what it could be on, especially if you took it with an 11.5mm focal for 4 seconds... It's a waterdrop at night, and it's a crop from a bigger photo...
Iain Myrans: nope. No crop.
I think its one of those vase with air bubbles by the side as pattern.
It's a rainy day streetscape what we see is a small part of the image that caught a raindrop at the last fraction of a second. And then he rotated it ninety degrees to try and throw us off. but my little can see refracted in the water droplet the streetscape. Its just Sparklite taking another photo of the street at night.grin

Well done Iain.
Iain Myrans: Nope not a street at night. Nor is is trees (in reference to your comment below!!!! grr. You and the Vault man need to stop it with the trees!! wink
Well that's all well and good Matt, but how is he going to slip 3 trees in there? That's the question that's on everyone's mind really. He managed to get a street into a waterdrop, but how is he going to make 3 trees fit in there too? I'm just wondering if maybe he has some trick he's playing on all of us, and he's going to zoom the image back out and we are going to see that it's really not a water drop at all, but it is infact, an air bubble in an ice cube, or a jello cube... the thing that i still can't figure out is why it's at 11mm, and why it was a 4sec exposure. I bet it's really some piece of modern art somewhere...

if not for the large LHS bubble it would pass for a painting.

I can't for the life of me, figure it out...guess it's almost the end of the day (British Summer time), so put us out of our misery.
Iain Myrans: lol. I'm in Canada wink That and I didn't get to a computer at midnight wink The answer is posted below.
The trees ar down the street behind a building. You can't see 'em but their there.

I think it may be a glass front door. The sphere shape seems to be showing an inverted street scene in the distance?

Where are you Sparklite?!
Iain Myrans: Wow. that's an interesting guess! Everyone is being very imaginitive! Honestly no one would guess exactly what it is anyway but this is fun smile Thanks for your comment! The answer is below.
Well some people came very close. At least with the bubble idea, etc. It is actually a motionless airbubble in a bottle of that gel hand sanitizer. It looks 'in motion' despite its stillness since the bottle's corners turned in at 45 degrees. I shot this on the corner section since I could see a neat 'motion' effect when I placed the camera there. The orange is the wood of my dresser under un-whitebalanced tungsten.

Thanks for playing! It was fun smile Not a serious picture but kind of nead. the 'moving' suspended and still airbubble.

Oh, and the frosty-background effect was because one side of the bottle was frosted wink
