This is a shot of 4 Ikea scented tea lights (orange and apple.. mmmm) sitting on a little table in their holders. The blur was achieved by standing directly over them, setting a 5 second exposure, shutter release and slowly zoom in. Magic. This was my fave of several similar shots.

Very nice! I like the way the light is more about movement and energy than just light. (That probably made about as much sense as this challenge.)

interesting, but I think it could be more engaging to have the lights not coming from the center of the photo

Small Candles? I like the leading lines and the handheld zoom effect.
