Photographer's Note

This is a candlestick designed as crystal ball. It is from Sweden and its name was "snowball" - as my swedish friend Arna told me, it was a very common and typical one for there. Maybe our scandinavian TE members will tell us something more about it..? :-)

I love how the reflections change due to the different source of light on it.
I took this picture twice: with a flash and without. This is the version with flash, as I liked the way it made it look like an ice with some red colours inside - reflections from the small table it was on. There was no candle inside.
I added as a workshop the other version - it is made in picture mode, without a flash, light source was only a lampion with soft electric light. Please, all comments are welcomed as I was experimenting with light and macro mode.

Post processing: cropping, slightly sharpened and increased contrast once.
