CSS CSS Transitions and Transforms Adding 3D Effects with CSS 3D Transforms Challenge

Use a 3D transform function to rotate .photo 30 degrees on the Y-axis only.

This is brand new to me, could somebody please help me?

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.wrapper {
  perspective: 600px;
}
.photo {
  transform: rotateY(30deg);
}

While your code would have the same effect, it's not what they're asking you to do. They specifically state they want the 3d rotate. Take a look at my code:

.wrapper {
  perspective: 600px;
}

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

Here we've toggled the Yaxis to "on" with the 1. Then we set the degrees at the end.

In my opinion the challenge should have accepted Connor's solution, since "rotateY(a)is a shorthand for rotate3D(0, 1, 0, a)."

I was struggling some time with this second challenge because I used space between the word rotate3d and parenthesis :) like this "rotate3d (..." So make shore everyone not to do this little mistake.... no spaces

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