    Fascinating project - well done! I can just imagine the reaction of a passer by walking in to the other end of the tunnel and seeing this.

    Leading lines and reflective, framing surfaces help draw attention to the sphere. (Although I doubt one could ever miss it!)

    Curious to know what we're seeing here; inside this tunnel seems an odd location for such a light structure.

    Ok you've got me. The reflection would lead me to think that the red ball is inside the green ball and there is a metal poll in their centre? Illumination from torches I guess? I've fancied having a go at the sparkler version of this for some time, but I don't think this was done in quite the same way. Well it couldn't if the red ball is inside the green? Do tell please. Would be better cropped with the tunnel level.

    I've never seen these light spheres before. Very interesting. I really like this, as the shot is all about the spheres. Great choice of location to enable the scene to be lit by the spheres and to obtain the interesting reflections.

    You have created a beautiful construct - it really is spectacular. I much prefer the location in your Open entry - this one seems too grubby for something so beautiful. I like the reflections, but would have cropped them back to where they were clean.

    Very creative and perfect for the theme. The walls and floor seem artificial but I am quibbling. High in my favs.

    I should have provided details in the extra info. I built a spinning
device using plastic pipe and fittings and attached battery-powered lights. I turn the handle to spin the arms which rotate around a central axis to create the orbs. It was pretty inexpensive to make.

A.N.Other: It's sort of a hand-cranked windmill apparatus with the yellow-green light on the end of the arm and the red-orange light in the middle. Thus, when spun and rotated it creates the concentric spheres.
