Description

:bulletblue: I said "Who are you?", don't matter who you are.

:bulletblack: We all hide and cheat and lie and disappear when night falls. But there is always a little sparkle that makes us return to what really counts. We often don't share it with others but we feel and see it when it shines.

:bulletwhite: It's gonna take your head and gonna drive you home, it's gonna keep on and then forever roam.


:bulletred: Something new for me. Long exposure and night shot.

This is stunning. I love the spooky feel of the piece! Great use of "Ghosting." I love how you used the light not just for "air writing" but also to add a glow to your subjects face; it definitely makes the piece spookier.

The colours are great I enjoy the sepia colouring. I love the contrast between the colouring and the subject matter. The colouring is warm and inviting while the subject and idea of the picture is rather spooky.

I feel this is a wonderful piece all around, I can't find anything particularly out of place or un-belonging. All in all this is very superb, you have made a marvellous piece of art! Thanks for sharing with the deviantArt community.

Wow if it new for you! As soon as full view came up I thought of him breathing in hands to keep them warm, breathing fire is one extreme, the tree lights is really great too.

Ah yes! Those little bits of illumination, whether they're for the senses, the mind or the soul that keep us tethered to certain people, things and places.

You've the "ghosting" with just the right opacity and the small light lines are very effective.

This is a haunting, in that we all return to those people places and things that provide us with sustenance, and you've managed to capture it.

This makes me think of time travel. Sooner or later we must visit the darkness in our past. "Look to the rock from which you were hewn and from the quarry from where you were dug"~Isaiah Like this picture, there is light there as well. And it is a surprising kind of light because its unexpected. The 'ghost' looks to be in anguish and maybe somewhat afraid of what he/she will see . The sparks? 'treasures of old'! My experience has been to face the darkness and to be gifted with sparks of light and blessing! This picture tells a thousand tales!

That's a nice concept, I love it. I thought first before reading you explaination that he was like a spirit. Somethime we say that place have atmosphere, that there are some "ghost".
