    If the photo is meant for abstract, then it should be a good shot. But if it is still-life shot. then maybe i dun get it. If u didnt stated that crystal ball is water. I dun even know.

    I'm amazed by the colours from the smoke. How did you paint them in ps?

    Care to share?
    hi ordinaryless, glad you like the pictures, initially i adjusted just the colour balance till i find a colour i like for the form, but i'm testing out other methods like screening layers etc. (thanks to HotSpots for the reminder!)

    hi sunkist, it was shot as an abstract composition right from the start, i was composing with the reflections, rather than the objects in the sink

    no problem and thanks! btw forgot to add that the images are first inverted before changing the colour, so it's best to shoot with a black light-absorbing background (so that when you invert you get a clean white background) requires lots of testing, trials and errors, probably only 1 to 2 shots work out well out of 60 to 100 shots ... depending on luck

    hey, thanks for coming in, smoke is white originally (mosquito coil), and bg was dark blue, when inverted i get very dark brown to black smoke (brown from the bg as smoke is translucent at some point, bg is slightly yellowish when inverted) with the dark colour you can play around with colours ... the grains surface when i blow up the slightly yellowish inverted background into white, this would not happen if the background is totally black
