Long exposure, sat in front of camera with torch on my face and then ran back and swung the torches around on a piece of string. I hope this does OK as its only my second challenge. I took about 50 shots but could never quite get what I wanted so I'll leave it to the judgment of the massess, Bring on the 1's!

Wow, that must have been a really long exposure. The model held his face amazingly still. I like the use of red and blue, creates a sharp contrast. Might have actually fit more with the contest without the model.

I'm guessing this is a time exposure with red and blue lights whirled around. Nicely done.

It doesn't really look like you're spinning, but maybe something is spinning around you or your model (radioactive flies?). Neat shot.

This would be a 10 if the face were a little more blurred actually. wildly creative idea. I like it. Upon further review I am bumping this up one point.

There are many such kind of shots in this challenge. For me this is the best in that series.

lovely and moody. . .the glasses seem to imply he is a scientist of some kind (probably not) and that really adds to it.

great lighting, the reflections on the glasses are a bit distracting.
