Hi All!
Wow! I got my 3rd ribbon this year!
Thank you all!

I got this idea started with the picture I saw "Appealing Light" by Hokie.

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=301389', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=301389', '/') + 1) . '

Then I thought, How to make this with some theme. Then when I was out shopping, I saw this red Christmas Tree Decor bulb, I thought, I could paint a tree around the bulb with a star on top! But in the end, the final picture is as seen with the top final twist to be an abstract star!

First of all, the light was painted with a small LED light.

I did some saturation to bring out the red in the decor bulb.

Merry Christmas to All!

I love this image! Very nicely executed - The colors and the contrast work perfectly! The only small distraction is the highlight on the ball seems to be a bit over-saturated.

Great idea, wonderful image. My only gripe would be the left hand side where the curl is cropped off.

12/03/2008 12:35:52 AM
cool effect - more curvey than twisted but still impressive...
