This week’s WordPress Photo challenge is refraction. Tough one, and I couldn’t think what to post apart from the obvious image of a rainbow, except I couldn’t lay my hand on one.

Then last evening, I noticed light refracted on a CD….I liked the colours, but a very high ISO shot wasn’t great….



  1. I thought it was a tough word this week, too. In fact, I haven’t even entered. Yours is fine, though. There’s refraction everywhere if we just choose to look!

  2. At first I didn’t see the CD – couldn’t understand – but now! Smart!

    I like the texture of the colors from the surface that the light is shining on. A very creative solution to the challenge—Tres` Pink Floyd.

  4. It still looks great with the dark background. Where did the light come from?

  5. It’s a rather mysterious creation, Sue, especially if one sees it as a picture, rather than a photo.

  6. Well spotted and captured! So striking on the black…kinda looks like a comet’s tail in space!

  7. I love this Sue!! Great shot and clever!!!

  8. I rather like it, Sue 🙂 I can see that CD as a nice cup of coffee. Off I go to put the kettle on. 🙂 My eyes obviously need caffeine.

  9. Creative! Glad you decided to dive in!

  10. Well seen – and a great way to accomplish WordPress’ photo challenge. Very creative.

  11. There’s something good about the bits of grittiness in the colours, makes the image more interesting…

    Great sliver of light caught there Sue !

  13. Excellent again. *smile
