Ribbons by elza


An experiment in light on the roof top. A little bit of skyline in the background and as much fun as possible. Wish I had my grand daughters with me for the running session. A few minutes well spent in learning about long exposure.
Nice work!

@kork @fueast @bkbinthecity thank you for your comments. Yes it was fun! Just imagine what my neighbours would have thought had they seen me running about the roof waving the lights around!

Very intriguing. I’d love to know how you created this.

Nicely put together to get the hint of the skyline as well as the ribbons.

@lynnz @edorreandresen @jakb @taffy Thank you all for your kind comments.
The shot was taken with a very slow shutter speed while I ran from one side of the roof to the other swirling a torch with three leds which I covered with sweet wrappers. During processing using Gimp I over exposed the ground to get those purple bright spots while filling the top area with a gradient from black to transparent which eliminated a few wires and emphasised the skyline.

What a cool shot! Thank you for explaining the process.
