Thought first of a bridge opening at night....bit far away to get the picture.
Second, a fish down at the park opening its mouth... many hours later, till was too dark to take any more pictures. All were quite borring.

Last day, last chance, came up with something else...a little different....

no editing done besides noise reduction, rotate and save for web.

Main light turned off, container with candle inside placed carefully in toilet bowl. Head light moving away from bowl while shutter open.

IMO too much dead space in the bottom half. Clever portal though :)

Brilliant use of "painting with light". This will be on page one.

Great shot! But is it legal? What are the white lines coming out? Is this a composite? Anyways, I like it! Great colours. Could have cropped or illuminated lower part more.

It is kind of an icky subject, but I am really intrigued by this shot, and I am wondering how it was accomplished! Very unique!
