This was a very low tech set up...
I cut stars out of a piece of black poster board, taped wax paper to the back to help diffuse lighting. I taped the whole thing to my shower door. I placed a flashlight aimed at the ceiling in the bottom of the shower and set a flash diffuser on top of the flashlight. I tried to hold my left hand with the paint brush very still while my right hand rushed around to dodge away shadows and make a white streak through the picture without going over my hand. Fun stuff :)

the concept is strong and the lighting is generally appealing. you've produced a good range of tones. the light scribble looks a bit heavy-handed.

Interesting, though it feels really artificial. It's probably the stars that give this an overly constructed feel. 4

I think you have a great idea here. Nice flow to the composition, great exposure, but the stars just scream tacky...I think you could have, more effectively, used something else in their place.

Nice setup. Focus pretty good for the long exposure.
