    I took these photos with plastic cups, color filters on my flash unit (from different angles, multi-exposure), a black backdrop, and Maglite flashlight.

    I used Liquify in Photoshop to do the effect. Then I screwed with the channel mixer. Lots of duplicate layers and blend modes applied. It reminds me of this stupid project I had to do in high school biology of some weird sea creature thing.

    I'm not usually one to like more abstract art, but this photo really appeals to me. Nice colors and fun shapes and texture with the cups. Very nicely done :thumbsup:

    wow, that's the first use of a photoshop filter (other than, you know, unsharp mask, or other subtle manipulations) that hasn't made me cringe. It looks like the original cups are melted and deformed... very very nice!
