    Thank you for all your votes and comments. Each one is appreciated.

    I expected this photo to finish much higher - I still think it's a simple subject taken creatively. Should have guessed that you rotated the photo - here's me thinking you balanced one straw on top of the next - duh!

    My #1 Jade - I would have marked it higher if you'd had a more interesting background. ROFL

    Thanks, Maike13, I appreciate the feedback that it worked out o.k. Sometimes, you are just not sure until you hear it from others.

    Perfect example of what I think this challenge is all about. Taking something everyday ordinary and transforming it into an interesting and appealing photograph.

    Edward 48. Appreciate the comment and the ranking!

Billy, I just couldn't think of anyway to get more black and still have the same impact.

Alby, Really, these are all the colours I had left!

    Drinking straws will never be the same again. A simple idea very well executed. Top three shot.

    Very original idea, nicely executed, the backlighting works very well to create the interest in the pic. I think I would have liked even more black, negative space. But no doubt a good pic for the challenge, and TT for me, well done!! :-)

    Raf I tried paper towels, stove burners, box of tissues, and finally this one which worked out better than the rest.

Mepo Thanks. I always value your input. Sort of reminds one of trying to figure which cable to weld doesn't it?

Lo I confess I threw the straws in a glass without any arranging -- (though I did mount the glass on a box of tissues to get some elevation), turned on a desk lamp, set up a source for a light bounce (a calendar) and to put the background in the shadow (hence the dark background) and just took the shot.

    Now this fits the theme very well. Who ever looks twice at a straw? SO you have the start and through some clever lighting, DOF and composition have made us look at it differently. Nicely done

    Fantastic photo. It has a real 3D feeling too.

    The lighting on this shot is beautiful and the colours so appealing. I suspect it took a lot of arranging to give the straws this haphazard appearance. Great shot - and right on theme!

    Thanks, I appreciate the comment as my focus was in using the lighting on this one.
