Thank you all, Doc, Melissa, Paul, Michelle, R&A, Adilson, Ceasr & Judy! I wasn't planning to enter this, but since my "Waveform" made Finalist, I revisited the idea... this was earlier along the "tweaking path" that led up to "Waveform".

Thank you Angela... I'd tried it once before, without the vertical application of a little Motion Blur, and it just wasn't as cool as this!

Thanks, Stan... it is kinda similar to my "Waveform" that made Finalist in September's contest, so I dunno... I like your prediction, though!!

Chris -- I like this image. It is very "cool." Since it is a abstract, did you try turing it upside down. Not sure if that would make this wonderful image any better, but I guess it might be a worth a try.

Thanks, Don... your zoom images were the inspiration for this. I did an earlier version of this, 180-degrees opposite, but without the smoothing effect of the Motion Blur application. ("Light Curtain" is that image.) I like this version better, as it reminded me of a lit water fountain, and therefore seemed to make more sense "pointing up" rather than hanging down... but yes, being abstract, it could really go anyway at all.
