This one was hard to photograph. With the flash on, the lamp looks really nice, but it's not how the lamp truly looks. It's not as vibrant as I'd hoped and there are numerous flaws in the paint job. The globe/liquid doesn't appear as clear due to the not-so-great spray job.
So, I photographed it without the flash. Like the Rainbow Grande, the actual colors on the lamp aren't like the box, and there is no red on the lamp, period.
The flow is not good. And if history repeats itself, this lamp will get gunk in the coil in a matter of weeks. If it does that before the 30 days, I will return it.
See an example of the with/without flash here: http://oozinggoo.ning.com/photo/pink-blue-52oz-premier-lava-lamp-from-spencer-s?context=album&albumId=1566398%3AAlbum%3A491401
Yes, the colors are weak. I think my problem lies with the fact that I do have a 32oz. Clearview colormax that has really good color on it (see here: http://oozinggoo.ning.com/photo/32-oz-yellow-clearview-colormax-lam...) so I expected them all to be like that. I also had another 32oz rainbow colormax with a good spray job (see here: http://oozinggoo.ning.com/photo/rainbow-lava-lamp-by-lava-lite?cont...). But, as usual, quality control at LL is shit, so I should know better.
I fully expect this 52oz to end up sticking around the base and get crap in the coil. They all seem to go that route.
I like it, too.
But knowing the LL quality issues appear out of the box or after several runs, keeps me from buying. Now, if I had your photography skills and LL would trade product for pictures - well, that would be different deal.
Really great pictures, Erin!
I agree with Keith, it does look pretty! I like the spectrum on the glass.
