Oil on Water Images
I experimented with oil on water using a oven dish with water and a sprinkling of oil. I used the Christmas tree lights and placed them below the dish. The dish was on a small plate glass table with a convenient shelf beneath for the lights shoved below there in a bundle.The moulding lines of the oven dish can be seen.
As it was abstract I did not bother with a tripod and used 1600 ISO and AF setting. The lights provided sufficient light.
I was pleased with these results which took no time to do and was fun. This is the best use you can give to your Christmas lights.
