      The POTW winner is Robert Apple for his ‘ICY Blue’ semi-abstract image of glass beads.

      When I saw this picture, I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. Robert used composition and color to create a magnificent piece of artwork.

      We had some very close competition, though. So close, that I’m going to name three runner-up photographs that were created by two different photographers.

      Most of you likely know that I have a particular affinity for abstract and semi-abstract photography. This week was an engaging period for these genres.

      One of my runner-up winners is Patrick, (@P71), for his latest light painting effort. It’s pretty cool, and I imagine that he will create some truly amazing photographs with his new technique down the line. I’ll post a link below.

      My second runner-up is Petr (@petrnowak). He posted two images that caught my eye. One is titled strange fellows, and the other is Japanese misty and rainy mountains. Petr continues to push the limits of photographic art, and I like that.

      Thanks Kent and to all those who have commented, this photo was born out of a cold winters day boredom, my wifes crafting supplies and a high power flash light, the beads are sitting on the lens.
      Congrats to the runners up as well, all great photos.

      Congratulations to you Robert. I for one would love more detail on just how you shot  this with the beads sitting on the lens.

      I enjoyed your images as well Pat and Petr. Congrats to you both.

        The beads are sitting on the flash light lens, it’s a 1100 lumen tactical flash light, the beads aren’t really that translucent,  just a lot of light.
