I showed the photo to my wife. She doesn't believe the pipe cleaner lightning but loved the photo regardless.

Thank you, violet196!

DeadJohn, here's a non-glamorous behind-the-scenes photo of the pipe cleaner: http://tinypic.com/r/2i9jl7a/8

I repeat what I said earlier: your replies in this thread are worthy of "most helpful comment" consideration.

I nominate this photo. I first looked at the photo and my conclusion was: FAKE, not even to the level that I could believe in it. Then your story: this is a great SELFIE!

I nominate this photo.

Great idea and brilliant execution!

Next time, I'd avoid the somewhat hot light from below. But the rest looks utterly convincing. Amazing.

Thank you very much for the comments! :-)

Class A, I agree, the highlights got blown out in processing. The RAW file contains the data, though - I processed this one a while ago, when I thought supercontrast was cool. I have since reprocessed it, but too late to change my submission here.
