Shot of one of those geometric plastic toys that can expand and retract (I think it's called a Hoberman Sphere).
Pulled back and twisted camera during exposure to create this effect. Toy was on a black blanket by our back window.
Shot RAW, in ACR, brought exposure and blacks up, clarity to -100, saturation to +63. Opened in Photoshop.
Auto curves, cropped, resized, saved for Web.

A total riot of color, effective use of grain and the non-conformity of the shapes are efficient and evocative.

Gorgeous colors... the vibrant colors with the nice contrast makes the image very bright yet moody at the same time.
