Sure, you can vote. Its my understanding that anyone can vote regardless if they entered or not. The more that get involved the better. We're just having fun.

I'm going to vote for Tundraguy's sparks. There were a couple of other ones I kept going back and forth with, but in the end, I loved the creativity of the sparks, a very well done picture.

Thanks mtngal. This was a fun challenge. I enjoyed all the entries this month, many have generated ideas for further experimentation. This has given me a new perspective on time and motion.

Very creative entries this month... enjoyed them all. After much "reflection", my vote goes to mtngal's radiant pier lights.

The converging light rays looks a bit like crepuscular rays.

Again, quite a few great ones to choose from. But, in the end, my vote goes to mtngal's piers. Outstanding.

Actually, crepuscular refers to the periods surrounding dawn and dusk (from the Latin crepusculum = twilight). Usually used to refer to animals that are active around dawn and dusk (being neither diurnal nor nocturnal). In this case crepuscular rays are those that appear at dawn or dusk (the crepuscular periods), an interesting phenomenon - thanks for the link.
