I can't put my finger on what these are. They look like something children swirl around.

Congratulations on this spectacular finalist, Rebecca!<:))

Thank you, Lorraine. They're actually Christmas lights and I rotated my camera while taking the shot.

Could you plese share exactly how you made these fantastic swirled light images? Tripod on axis? Freehand? Exposure time? background? type of lights? Etc? Thanks for any/all details you are willing to share!

This was taken freehand w/2 second exposure. They are just Christmas lights piled on the carpet. I rotated the camera from side to side while moving back and forth a few inches. In this shot there are only six or seven lights. Trial and error, I probably took a hundred shots before I got this one. It was really a matter of playing with different camera motion and exposure, and using different colors (sometimes too many red or pink lights). Hope that helps, have fun!
