Spinning globe on a counter at work, backlit by glass brick (diffuse sunlight) and overhead fluorescents. Lousy lighting conditions helped push me towards using extreme Curves to make it looks like a weird planet in space instead of a poorly-lit globe.

I suppose I was between 5-20 seconds too late hitting the "Submit" button ... perhaps for the best. ;-)

Used Tv (Shutter-Priority) mode to capture the motion blur, used various UnSharp Mask settings to enhance contrast and detail.
