I lit this with one clamp lamp to the left. The shapes surrounding me were cause by the light on dust on the lens. I should have dusted, perhaps, but I like the effect it gave.

Camera raw adjustments in PSElements 6.0.
2 Crops
Color curves adjustment.
Layer of Levels and Gradient Map converting to BW. No levels dialog adjustments for RGB.
Adjust sharpness.
Another color curves adjustment to reduce highlights and decrease shadows.

Should suck....later....gotta dust my lens!
