All Comments and Critiques Welcome.

.......... ? Perhaps I should have mentioned sooner, this is a light bulb. ?
The purple background is a desktop wall paper on my computer monitor. The rest is an extreme closeup of a 40 watt appliance light bulb. The only editing was some spot removal and pumping the saturation up ( alot! ).

The reason why the sunsets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

Wonderful clarity of the bottle neck. Very interesting shot with extreme colors. Have no idea how you did that. Time to cut back on your intake of LSD. :-)

Whoa! I very much enjoy your experiments, DP! This capture is electrifying, and I'm really diggin the highly saturated effect, and the semi-transparent elements! Excellent work! Faved.

Fantastic work! I knew it's a light bulb, I wonder how you captured this? Probably very fast shutter speed? Anyway this is a very unique image and you have captured it wonderfully. Well done.

Thank you for the complements Prashanth. The trick to this was to put the light bulb on a dimmer switch to make the filament glow red instead of being white hot. This also allowed the background to show up as something other than just black as it would with a very fast shutter speed.
