The Franklin Park Conservatory, Columbus, OH, has Dale Chihuly glass exhibits within the plant biomes, arranged primarily among the plants and hanging from the ceilings. One of the exhibits is different styles and colors of blown glass that cover a skylight in a biome tunnel. The photo of this exhibit, taken with an iPhone, is busy and that is a look I usually avoid. But in this case I liked the colors and patterns and wanted to work it into the challenge.

This is a composite of two photos: The skylight exhibit and of a young woman’s portrait in profile, which was also taken with an iPhone. The light source for the face is a lamp located back and to the left of the face. That approximated the direction of backlighting for the glass, and created shadows that I thought worked in this composite. The photos were blended to try to create the fantasy of a face being subsumed into the exhibit.
