Experimental photography

What I would have called Abstract Photography not long ago I know call Experimental Photography. Why? Because while it may be abstract in nature I am truly experimenting with light, colors, reflections and the like all in camera.

That being said what I ended up with from my experimenting last night was something I ended up spending some time on in Photoshop. The base image was colored Christmas lights reflected on a piece of silver reflective paper and while the shutter was open I moved the camera to the side to create some motion.

Here is the base image for comparison of my final output above. When I opened this imagine in Photoshop and started playing with a few things I thought it started to look like clouds you may see in Asian scroll art so I went with that concept in mind.
