    Thanks for all the great entries people!! I realise that the topic i chose was quite a hard one, but everyone has come up with some fantastic photos!

    Feedback Time!!

    @ jabbott

    I really like the range of patterns in your photo as well as the range of colour. I also like the fact that you decided to use HDR to add to the effect. Well Done! :)

    @ Chappers

    Wow, I really like this one!! i like how you've managed to taken an object that doesnt appear kaleidoscopic from a normal point of view, but you've managed to find a p.o.v that makes the eiffel tower look like a kaleidoscope. I also like the colours due to the picture being taken at night!!

    @ Keleko

    I really like this photo as a whole! i like that you've approached this subject from a different angle from most people. I love the colours in this photo and the use of editing.

    @ flutegirl822

    I really dont know what to say about this photo! I'm still trying to figure out how you took it! I really love the lighting and colour in this photo. It's definitely something i'd put on my wall!!

    @ fcortese

    Thanks for the entry!! I like the effects of the lights, especially the blue ones, it really makes elements of the photo "pop". While not the most amazing quality, still a solid entry.

    @ JDDavis

    Very nice photo, and good choice of subject!! i really like the colours in this photo and the patterns that are present. Thanks for the lovely entry!

    @ pukifloyd

    Wow thank you for this entry!! I really like the patterns in this one, almost like an optical illusion! Very clear and a nice entry!

    @ deep diver

    Very very nice picture you have there! i really like how the colour is shown, something about the marble that makes the colours almost glow!!

    @ Ryan1524

    Thank you for this very good entry!! i really do love this picture, and the patters and lighting. It really does make me feel that i am looking into a kaleidoscope!! just a thought here, but i can't help but noticing the stained glass windows on the top and bottom of the pictures, i think a picture of those would have made for an even better entry!!


    Now, Judging time!!

    There have been a lot of excellent entries full of skill and talent, but i can only choose one winner. I'll do 1st, 2nd and 3rd place i think.

    3rd Place ... flutegirl822

    Thanks for your excellent entry! You must tell me how you got this effect or what you took a picture of!! :D

    2nd Place ... Ryan1524

    Thank you as well for this simply excellent entry! sorry i couldn't place you first!

    Winner ... Chappers

    Very Very Well done to you!! What made this photo the winner for me was that you took something that wouldn't remotely remind me of a kaleidoscope, and you managed to pick the right point of view, lighting and timing to manage just that! I really like the lights and how it seems like i am looking through a window, just like a real kaleidoscope!! Good luck picking the subject next week.

    Thanks once again for all the great entries this week!!

    Congratulations Chappers. As to my set up, I arranged colored papers that are rolled and taped (tube-shape) on a piece of glass and lighted it from underneath. That's all. :eek:)
