The title I gave to the photograph is “When Worlds Collide”, because to me, the spheres look like planets.
The image is made from cooking oil on water. The water is in a glass bowl and the bowl is on a glass table. The colour was provided by random coloured materials (magazines, CD covers, whatever came to hand), under the glass shelf.
Settings: Camera: Canon 6D; Lens: EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM; Aperture: f/2.8; Shutter: 1/60 – 1/250; Flash: fired; ISO: 250
