Shot in the bathroom mirror using a tripod, the timer, manual focus, and a second tripod to support my arm in approximately the right position.

Composed with the over-sink light on, then turned off the light and tripped the shutter. Turned on/off the light for the first exposure, then repositioned my arm and repeated for the second exposure. The shutter was open for a total of 15 seconds (maximum for my camera), while each exposure was approximately 2/3 second.

Used the Blue channel for both the best tonal range and to accentuate the noise/grain.

Good take on the challenge. I don't like the super high noise, but maybe that was on purpose for a classic novel title.
