I couldn't decide whether to title this as something going on inside our heads or something going on in deep space; it's fairly amorphous in composition which is one reason why I am fairly content with it.
Anyway, this was captured in October 2007 for a college assignment that was investigating long exposures. However, it's somewhat ironic that the best image from that photoshoot happens to be one with a relatively short exposure time. The only other capture from that session to be uploaded is Eta Orionis with a 30-second exposure. It's interesting how the same subject can be depicted in such different ways.
Regarding the two-year disparity in submission dates, this gallery slot once contained an image trying to capture a similar concept but infinitely less-successfully. It seemed logical at the time to directly replace it.
Amazing work, Darren!
My interpretation is an egg and a dozen or more sperm trying to get into it, if I am not too blunt. I quite like your gallery
Ahah. It's certainly an image that is open to interpretation. Thank-you for taking the time to comment, it is appreciated.
I always find these fascinating
You have a wonderful gallery! Nice to meet you.
Magic, well done!
it's beautiful! very mystical!!
Just how? I don't even understand where this image came from.
Heh; it's a low-light capture of a plasma lamp in action.
Very Nice Image ^^
Cracking shot and brilliant concept
This is amazing!!!
I'm glad you think so; thank-you for the comment.
What a wonderful image this is!
Amazing photo mite!!
Thank-you for that, and for the favourite-list addition of this work. I appreciate it.
fantastic - and the title just takes it to the top - great concept, well executed
You've got some nice experimental stuff here!
wow plasma ball, great shot
Was this shot against a black background or was it just in the dark?
I shot this in pitch-black to get the highest contrast possible between the background and the plasma within the lamp. I had tried during daylight hours with a black backdrop but I got too many reflections on the glass surface for my liking. Heh.
