This is one of those electric plasma balls. i was practicing on it one night.

C+C welcome, or opinions about how i can make it better. I like the way it turned out for the most part. wife uses them for desktops.

one is long exposure, one is short

I really like the idea and how it looks! Almost like you caught a star getting ready to nova.

Seems to me Plasma balls are notoriously difficult subjects, Not really generating enough light, but at the same time always changing and moving.

I've tried several times to get a good shot, but haven't had any success.

I have to say these are nice shots. :) They might inspire me to fire up the old plasma ball, and grab the camera and see if I can get something decent.
