Very little editing here:

Crop to center

Curves - reviewed DPC tutorial & applied techniques of low key + darken highlights. The low key application really blackened the background.

Sat +6

USM - one pass but maybe should do two?

Tried Neat Image but it didn't seem to add anything.

I lined up three LED flashlights, one behind each other- white, red, blue so you can only see the nice shiny one. A Triangle piece of black paper was moved back and forth to reflect the different colours back. I placed a couple of pieces of white paper over the white light since it was overpowering the other colours.

I wanted the illusion of multiple colours from one flashlight. Got this idea from a similar arrangement I saw on a magazine cover a while back but I wanted to get some colour into it.

I hope I don't get low scores for only one visible light source.

Really beautiful. A high score from me. The colored light is interesting, the black background clean, the white disc of light at center isn't overexposed, and the metallic flashlight doesn't glare (your lighting on it is perfect). The flashlight may be missing perfect symmetry by just a tad, but no points off for that!

Like the multiple wakes of light and their contrasting color to the gold flashlight.
