Thanks for the votes and comments.

It's been such a long time since I did a Painting with Light image, I'd completely forgotten how to do it.
So back to experimenting... Over the next two days I shot what it seemed like a million photos, five hours the first day and two hours the next.

Out of the "million" shots I had four I liked. Next problem, I couldn't decide which one to enter. I normally just go with my gut feeling but with a choice of four I decided to ask my husband and a friend who does a lot of photography... She liked them all (bless her) so she asked her husband and son what they thought. I then had four different opinions. Go figure...;-)

The one I entered appealed to me because it had a more "modern" touch to it.

@ 21.gif GeorgesBogaert I used a small torch to "paint", but it left a thick white stripe which didn't appeal to me, so I held two fingers over the torchlight and left a tiny gap at left or right. That way I could control whether the lighting flow was white, blue or reddish/brownish or a combination of all.

Here are the other three I liked:

Thanks also for the ribbon... Totally delighted!

Congratulations Irene. Well done.
Love all the images. I do find the last image unique with the light out of the bottle.

I like the idea and the execution is well done. Colors are ok.
What I don't like is the red light doesn't make sense in the setup. I would be nice if the light was coming out of the bottle and then turns into the glass and vanishes away. 6 from me
