Aperture: f/20

Long exposure under modelling lights with a large softbox popped twice. Only took about 6 attempts to get a nice one. However, much as I like this image, the advanced editing version is soooooo much better!

Post challenge: Thanks for all the votes and great comments! As requested, here is the 'advanced editing' version:

That's absolutely gorgeous. So long exposure, with two flashes fired (with a bit of delay)? How do you get the exposure correct / right in such cases?

Beautiful picture

Very nice image. Nice tones, well framed. Love how you have a mirror effect without the mirror. The sense of motion in the photo is fantastic. Only criticism is that I would have liked more sharpness in the face. Looks like this may have been a small part of a larger image? Overall outstanding.

sublime, simply sublime
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/25/2010 12:47:25 PM
Love the composition, activity mixed with static. B&W and edge of colour tone brings out aspects that would otherwise be lost in full colour, great :-)

Getting just the essence of blur motion is a lot more difficult than it looks. Kudos on a very good capure.
