Seeing as how I got a validation for this one, I figure I should explain here how I did it. First thing, I uploaded the wrong edit, which sadly was not as good as this one, but its still legal. I put up a black background, and shut all the lights off in the room so that the room was pitch black. I used a 30 second exposure, but with the room dark, no light was being exposed. I held the ball up and lit it for two seconds, then shut it off. I then stepped in front of the camera, and with a wireless flash trigger strapped to my toe, I fired the flash and that is what exposed me over the light globe. This technique is commonly referred to as a Double Exposure, even though only one frame is fired.

i really liked the idea of this shot, just wished it was a little more contrasty, maybe a little less noisy?

Very creatively done. I'm guessing the plasma ball is reflected off a pane of glass.

An 8 from me... very original. It could have had some more PP and made a 9 or 10, I think... it's a tad bit flat.
