I tried various combinations of shutter speeds and spinning the camera. It was tricky to get the center of focus right, and I ended up with a relatively fast shutter speed combined with a quick spin of the camera - this gave sharper lines to the blur. Using the Gimp on Linux I adjusted saturation, curves and finished it up with a little usm.

Creative swirl effect with stationary background. I'd like to see how this is done.

Nicely done, even if the effect is a tad cliche at this point.
