This is a blue version of Hive, a recent photo I made which was part of an experimental series showing the television screen seen through various objects used in the living room.
This one is a macro shot of a bundle of drinking straws, aimed at the TV. Obviously, the screen was showing something blue! The actual straws measure less than 5mm in diameter. I used a shorter focal length for this one, and we can see more of the straws in it.
Focal length 22mm
Shutter 1/3 sec.
Shot in manual mode
White balance set to tungsten
AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G VR
Close-up filters: CU+1, CU+2 and CU+3
