Teslaelectric Energy       ©2018 RobertLavker
Panasonic DMC-GX8       1st place, 174 points
1/5s, f5, ISO 200, 52mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: RAW files converted with Adobe RAW. Decreased shadows; increased highlights, increased contrast; filter-unsharp mask; blended nine images using the auto-blend function in Photoshop, to make the composite photograph. Flipped the composite image vertically; cropped; converted to black and white; cloned out a few bright spots to make the background uniform; applied a warming filter (85) and adjusted the saturation.       Extra Info: This is a Tesla coil, which is an electrical resonant transformer circuit designed by Nikola Tesla in 1891. The coil transmits electrical ENERGY without wires. High-voltage, high-ENERGY discharges create thick bolts of lightning with few branches that appear luminous.

This photograph represents nine images of a Tesla coil firing that were blended.

    Thanks for the votes and comments. The Tesla coil is in the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. Quite an experience- lots of fun.

    Absolutely super illustration for the challenge. I think nine was a good choice.

    Beautifully captured. I really like the symmetry of the circles broken by the jagged flashes of energy.

    NICELY DONE... FOR 9 IMAGES IT IS REMARKABLY CLEAR AND IN FOCUS, GOOD COLORS WITH A NICE BLACK BACKGROUND.

    I got a big charge from this image -- I could feel the electrical energy. Well-planned and executed. Very creative.

    I've seen other versions of Tesla Coils but nothing like this one. Where did you find this? Very well photographed, I imagine it was not easy. Well done.
