I think everyone likes likes the concept of magic and magic wands. In almost every depiction of magic wands in action they have a trail of light (see the fairy god-mother scene in Disney’s Cinderella or any Harry Potter movie).
I think that is why I like this image so much, we get to see the magic in action.
On the Photoshop side of things I found this image editing a bit different from most images I have done. This image did not involve one or two types of tools repeated over and over. It involved just a bit from many tools including paths, layers, layer styles and masks. Truly a fun image to create.
