    I think it's very suspicious that you won't share how you do this. It must be digitally done...I guess silence is golden - you wouldn't share on the other image you had published after everyone asked - rather annoying to me.

    All, thanks again for the kind and skeptical comments. I have not been actively managing my account on this site, due to time constraints. As you see I have only two images I have uploaded to JPG, directly as a result of the Camera Toss challenge. Please check out my stream on flickr, and the Camera Toss group on flickr (that I moderate) for more images and some details regarding the technique. The link to same is in my profile description.
    This image was created solely in-camera (as I don't have the sophistication with software programs to have created this digitally).
    The target for this image was an AC neon light "Sun" caricature in a travel agent store-front. The alternating current is plainly visible in the light streaks as are the neon gas oscillation patterns. The toss used to generate this image was approximately 2 feet high with a relatively fast, more concentric rotation around the long axis of the lens (a barrel roll). Note the exposure duration is quite a bit shorter on this image than on "Kinetic 944" - 1/15 versus 0.3 seconds, and the resulting geometry is significantly more circular.
    Again, please have a look at mt Camera Toss set on at
    for more examples.

    I am just in awe, and thanks for "splaining."
