Nice study of collisions and reflections. It's a very smart choice that there are two colours. Again, a very good example that I'd like to see in a physics textbook.

I see that you were thinking about the ball reflecting off the rail as a reflection. Good idea, but it didn't reflect in the voting, as most voters were looking for light reflections, and missed the reflection connection. : ) for being a thinker!

Either you're going for the Panning Challenge - in which case you submitted to the wrong link, or you're going for reflection of lights and some strange abstract, which does nothing for me, especially in the context of this Reflections Challenge. Or of course, there's always the chance that you are not going for any current Challenge at all.

Well - there's an original reflection! Extra points for the most unique challenge interpretation so far; unfortunately the image does not have much going for it otherwise...

Hmmm.. Not a reflection?

Love the image, love the abstract, LOVE the color, but I am not see too much of a reflection.

Yours is a creative interpretation of the challenge theme. Incidentally, lights reflects that way. Not bad timing on the ball.

cunning but not the reflection required I think

This image would mean more if there were sharper elements in it. In terms of composition all the action is at the top. Cropping away some of the bottom of the image would give the picture more balance.
