Using a long exposure, I got my mother to stand in front of the window. I turned off all the lights in our cabin and shut all the blinds, except the one she stood in front of. These I left slightly open. ClicK... "Move!" Woaw...

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An interesting image that meets the challenge well.

I have to echo the thoughts of one of your commenters and commend you for a well thought out plan, the end result is a ghostly image that works very well. I love her well defined shape on the blinds against the missing sections of her in between the light filled gaps. Good old mom!

You have overexposure from the external daylight but this is inevitable given the shooting situation. I think a tighter crop may have improved the end result, I don't think you need the full doorway at all, or even the full standing figure, a crop that just has the essential upper body cropped to just above her head and no doorway would work better for you. You do have a slight lean to the right which could be corrected as part of a crop if you decided to try it.

Thanks for an interesting take on the challenge, Sid

My favorite (so far at least). Really well done. Makes me wish I had vertical blinds to try it.

Good job. I like that the figure isn't seen in the light, just in the blinds. :)
