*Third Place December:* Eric Evans, 16, student, Menlo Park, CA “I like the way lightbulbs look on the inside, and I thought light sparkling off the glass would look neat. I shot this on a table against a black blotter— the hard part was laying out shards with tweezers. I set a tripod-mounted Sony HVL-F42AM flash above and to the right, and triggered it optically.” *Tech specs:* Tripod-mounted Sony Alpha 100 with Minolta 50mm f/1.7 lens. Exposure, 1/800 sec at f/8, ISO 100. Minor fixes in Photoshop CS3.Eric Evans
