I was scouting out things to shoot and couldn't resist the very colorful and flashy Fiesta grocery store sign. I fired off a few exposures to see where I wasn't going to be overexposed. I ended up stopping all the way down and at only a 13 sec exposure because the darn thing was so bright. So I used my remote control and as the 13 sec ticked off I zoomed all the way in. I really had no idea that I was going to get the lovely swirling effect that I did on the "e" portion of the word Fiesta. The only post-processing I did was to resize it to submit it, I was completely happy with everything else, and ended up with what I think is a really fun image.

I think the contrast could be improved slightly, if I had to be nit-picky.

Bizarre eye catching shot with a lot of strange wonder in it. The only hangup is the issue of convincing enough of us in DPC land that this truly represents "late night". I love the composition, the radiating spokes of light.

Very interesting. I can't tell at all what it is, but it draws me in. Nice.
