Target .photo. Use a 3D transform function to rotate .photo 30 degrees on the Y-axis only... I can't figure this out.

why is is this not working?

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.wrapper {
  perspective: 600px;
}
.photo {
  transition: transform 1s;
  transform-style: preserve-3d;
}
.photo:hover {
  transform: rotate3d(0, 1, 0, 30deg);
}

Hi jeffry jimenez,

You have the correct transform, but you have put it inside a :hover selector which the task didn't ask for. You simply need the below.

.photo {
  transform: rotate3d(0, 1, 0, 30deg);
}

Happy coding!
