This was going to be called 'Either Coming or Going' for obvious reasons - and I think most people think it should have been!

It was a single 8 second exposure from a tripod. I froze for 4 seconds, turned and froze again.

Light source was my lounge main light and I angled the door so as not to pick up too much light on it.

Main challenge was to stay absolutely still and split the timing evenly.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

This photo is absolutely fantastic. Your idea is unique and well thought out. Your composition is perfect; I like how you have chosen a lower perspective.

I think the door may have moved just a tiny bit during shooting; look at the doorknob - there seem to be two of them.

Anyway, this great idea was very well executed, and the score reflects that. Congratulations!

Great work Jon. I really liked the idea and the execution on this one. The post processing treatment you did has a great graphic effect, sort of like a pen and ink or pencil sketch. Keep it up.

Hi Jon, Great job. Congratulations. I tried this with 8 seconds and I got nothing. ? Kept experimenting and finally got results with 30. I wouldn't have thought to do this tecnique and appreciate the tip.

Looks like he doesn't know if he's coming or going.

Wow, You did a great job with the double exposure. It really talks to you.

A great idea!

I think overlapping the ghost images is too distracting and really don't convey the meaning of the photo very well. Maybe 'Neither Coming or Going' would fit better.

awesome photo! Sure to be a top pick...I'll give it a 10...the clarity is great, and the capture of motion excellent! I love it in the b&w, adds to the mood of the photo...congrats on a terrific shot!

Damn! Wished my camera had double exposeure capability. Neat Idea. Only the right hand walking in on the figure wlaking out might suggest a "pat on the but."!

interesting. Can't wait till you tell us some of the details (shutter/flash/iso and the like.)
