First entry, time to get torn apart ;-)

An old "night light" I received for Christmast one year. Basically a bunch of very thin plastic threads lit from below by a rotating, psychadelic light source. The light moves through the plastic and illuminates the tips much like fiber optics.

This is very effective! I love the different colours you have coming through here against the dark background.

edit: Well done for your first photo! I actually came back to see how this one had done as it caught my eye both as the thumbnail when I first looked at it and again when I voted.

Very clever idea...worked out really nicely as this is quite pretty. Good job. The ultimate backlighting...total internal reflection.
