Light painting all in camera using flash and flashlights, single exposure, 266 seconds. Shot in both jpg and RAW, jpg file used, not the RAW. No removal of hot pixels, used CS3 to reduce original file size from 3888 pixels to 640 pixels. Once reduced, used sharpen tool once. No crop, no other editing. Hope I read those rules right.

Great capture. The color segments and subject are perfect.
(You need to do it again with ghosts and goblins for Halloween.)

Visions of you racing around in the darkness with coloured lights. Possibly even flouncing about gaily. Tra lala lala....

the use of flashes or other lights really gives this a cool look - espeically the window on the right and how the interior pinks interact with the purpes from outside

Nice and sharp and unexpectedly colorful. The purple is quite a contrast to the rusted seat. Bet the whole thing looks odd from a distance in what appears to be a peaceful natural context, but I know a distant subject doesn't make a very good night shot.
