Another from the night shoot with Diana & friends I've used the title Emerging because it gives me the feeling of a butterfly drying her wings having just emerged from a Chrysalis.
Super model who like all of them was prepared to have a go at all the different poses on a damp night in Portsmouth.The reflections on the wet stone were the real plus for me.
I learnt so much that night & can't wait to try the new techniques again. Still on a high!
I have replaced the red of the city ambient for a black sky because the original clashed with the wings. Otherwise all done in camera.

She could be a fairy pixie. Really lovely image, great work...........Sandy
Marvellous image, great position and just the right amount of flash. The reflections on the wet ground are a wonderful foil for the dark sky.

Welcome back and thanks for the great compliment on my image,

Wonderful composition Penny! It's the reflections in the wet ground that really grabbed my attention, an absolutely magical piece of good luck, which really perfect this lovely image.

Just one long exposure using lightstick round the model then popped with a flash.
Thanks for the comments. All tricks of the trade shared by Diana one damp night when it stopped raining just enough for us to get the photos & keep the reflections.
