Bought a reflective silver pin wheel in Ocean City last Sunday. Set it up in a bottle with a wad of paper towelling to around the stick to hold it in place. Extended three strands of small multicolor decorative lights over the pin wheel and wrap them around the camera lense barrel. Camera on tripod. Set timer and blew on the pin wheel for it to turn and shot away.

Post...Layer adjustments for levels, brightness/contrast, hue saturation. Wanter the colors a bit brighter so did some additional saturation in a layer (32% opacity) with Flaming Pear Kyoto Color. NeatImage. USM. Used the heal brush for many hot pixels. Resize. USM.

Nice colors and no hotspots. Perhaps a little more of a crop from the right side to center the shot would have had a greater impact on me. Good luck in this challenge. <5>

Very unique in this challenge. Wonderful color and display of light. I love the effect of symmetry without being truely symmetrical.

Like a neon target. Very cool. The colors are truly appealing against the black background. Is that a trumpet???
