Next, target .photo. Use a 3D transform function to rotate .photo 30 degrees on the Y-axis only. What am I missing?

What am I doing wrong?

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.wrapper {
  perspective: 600px;
  transform-style: preserve-3d; 

.photo {
  transform: rotate3d(0, 30deg, 0);

your transform gets one more argument: rotate3d(x, y, z, a). The first three arguments are the axes you want to rotate, the last argument is the angle. Try

transform: rotate3d(0, 1, 0, 30deg);

I did the same thing and it told me no, but perhaps I was missing the semi-colon.
