I just wanted to see if I could get a good light pattern from my daughter's toy fan. It has LED lights that change pattern every couple seconds. I went to my laundry room and set it up on a chair covered in black t-shirts and just started shooting for fun. This was my favorite shot .

I'm sure, it was hard for you... first entry and your first free study...
It's a nice pic, interesting play with lighting and colors. But if you like to get a better score, is this not a good idea for free study. It's not enough DPC-friendly, IMO

don't worry! Good luck for your next entry!

Thanks for the comments. I'm glad it wasn't last place, although I thought it might be. I just wanted to get into a challenge. Mission accomplished. Now I have a better idea what to do for the next one. Good job to everybody else who entered this challenge.

Interesting but not much else. Yes, I see the smile, it looks like a happy face.

Good color and well cropped/framed, and I do see the smile in the middle. There's a bit of graininess in the dark areas (on my monitor - probably not noticeable on lots of others). Overall, other than the novelty of the smilie, though, it lacks anything to hold the viewer.

Nice colors but other than that this image is just kind of flat. No real wow power to it.

Took me a second to spot the smile. A daring shot to put in a free study - I think it could do with a little more contrast to really blacken the blacks and make the colours jump out a bit more. Noise reduction wouldn't hurt either.
