This was such a fun challenge to do.

I had an idea, so I shopped until I dropped, to find some type of "executive motion" toy I was looking for. I nearly gave up, but I found exactly what I wanted.

It runs on a battery in the base, and has two brightly colored rings turning up and down, and even completly around on a bar, with a metallic reflective ball in the centre.

I positioned mirrors around the object, to add to the reflections.

I used my new "Macro" lens, and just had so much fun playing with differant settings, to achieve this result.....

I feel much the same, though I don't think I noticed the noise as much the first time I looked at it.

Wow. Love it! I've no idea what it is, but I love it.

Very rich, with a sense of detail just out of reach in the reflection in the globe. The blue and red circular blurs certainly impart a sense of speed.

Nice colours and abstract vision but I find the noise a little bit too much.

Neat. It has a grainy look to it that I really like. Others may beat you up over it, but I think its great here! 9

The shiny sphere seems just a little off for the thirds, that's my only complaint. Aside from that, the colors, the blur is great!

not sure what it is but it's interesting. I find myself wondering more about what the reflection is than enjoying the photo - maybe something more abstract in the reflection - or focus somewhere else in the image? Love the abstract nature of this though

Don't know what I'm seeing, but it's nice.

Quite a lot of noise in the colours, works against the sharp shape of the ball.

I love this! It's abstract. Artistic. Vibrant. I keep looking at it wondering how in the world you did this :) Good job!!
