I was trying to take a photo of a crystal statue to see what results I'd get. A side flash made the details stand out, and well it looked like a cube of glass.

Then I positioned my flash so it shot from the top, and the cube started casting some flares.

Closing the aperture darkened the pic to give it a more errr.. gem like look? And reduced the main glare point. (err... what's the term for it? hotspot? reflection?)

But then again we can cut glare just by taking the shot from another angle.

I'm sure the semi pro wants to say something about the flares, I just found it interesting how the light X'out when it hit the top.

And here's a shot where I try to be make the shot look nicer with some bokeh at the side. And I took it at an angle too!

Then when viewing the pic on the screen I find out I made the same mistake again whenever I take stuff with my macro lens. I forgot to wipe down the thing to remove all the dust trails from it! :P
