Will o' the wisp by ageofloss Will o' the wisp by ageofloss
I took this shot yesterday as I was driving around northern Vantaa, Finland. It got incredibly foggy all of a sudden so I stopped to take pictures of a field, in which there were some trees and barns and stuff.
I left the camera to expose and ran behind the tree to flash my flashlight couple of times.
Hope you like it =D

Wow, that's a really neat effect, the lighting's so odd and eerie but beautiful at the same time.

Brillant idea, the minimalistic framing is really interesting and the non-use of the rule of 3rds is smart here. The tree cuts the balance from the flash light.

At the first glimpse, I thought a car was just behind, but as the light is vertical it can't be, then I thought it was one of those lighting ballons + a long-expo + a few wind that created that effect. I must admit that I never thought about a flash. This is a great idea you had here !

where the painter needs a genius in choosing and applying colors and materials to compose the artwork of his dream, a photographer has to observe, and once a "right" hour has come: grab it and snapshot the hell out of it :)
Great Idea, nice composition. Favourite.
