I used aluminium foil to wrap around a tungston lamp. And then, I zoomed out when the shutter was open.

Thanks for the nice comments

My first glance led me to think this was one of those fiber optic globes or something.

Compositionally, this works very well with a square crop I think. It helps to lead the eye to the middle of the frame. It also works well that it is basically symmetrical and no one part of the "strata" of colors is off-balanced.

Technically, it is very well done. A lot of times this technique is better described as "blurry mess" rather than implying motion.

Overall well done, and obviously worked well for the voters. :)

Almost like looking at a nebula...

That's a compliment, btw =)

Brilliant colors, energy, and a strong abstract sense, but the motion isn't entirely evident. Whatever motion was used to this result was rendered static in the final work, IMO.

Wow....this is astonishing. If you stare directly in the middle of the photograph it looks as the rays are still in motion. Very cool!

A sparkling abstract motion.

Great colours, they're so vibrant I can almost feel the heat! :)

Very good in concept, not so much in execution. The white bloom is distracting and does nothing for the overall contruction. Might have been better to post process the white bloom to something different.

I can't make out how you've done this but it's very good. It would make a great print. Should do very well.
