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

Thank you, Lorraine. They're actually Christmas lights and I rotated my camera while taking the shot. #2799496

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! #6355500

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! #6448896
