I dont think anyone will figure out what this is.
This is a long exposure I took last night on the beach. I stood out there on the beach and twirled the flashlight in my hands like I was a ninja.

All I did was invert the colors and a few other tweaks like levels adjustment and gausian blur.

I think it would look cool rotated 90 degrees and printed on a scroll :)

My guess: machining scrap, very shallow dof, shot from underneath, high contrast, in negative. Interesting.

Well hopefully you will tell us what it is. Otherwise I am having a hard time to find a lot here. Maybe I am all wrong.

What is it then? OMG! Tell me! I can't handle this! I have to know! :)

I love the flow of the ... whatever it is. Caligraphy? Some sort of light painting?

Ok, you've got me curious. At first I thought it was just a drawing, then I wondered if it was dimensional. It's cool, though. I like it!

This is really cool. I like the crop used, and the design is evocative of Chinese characters without being too literal.

I will be interested in seeing what this is...to me it almost looks like a fish that has been done in artistic brushes...well done

This looks like light "sketching" I like the long horizontal format.
