Photograph by Alex Coppel, My Shot

Used burning steel wool combined with a moon-filled night to create this amazing effect over a long exposure

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? The effect of the circle of sparks is nicely done here and makes for a fun picture. I especially like the figure in the center, making it all happen. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
