Light City

By yellowmunky  
All done in one take, without photo editing... long exposure, naturally.
I used quite a few torches for this... not my best work, but one I enjoyed creating... when I return to this location, I will fill in some 'gaps' and probably use more 'solid' pieces.. also will straighten up some buildings and add more daring detail...

Awesome! I have tried painting with light, with reasonable success, but NOTHING on a level you are getting to now......fantastic shot! And knowing the process of how it was done, even more admiration for such a complex image. Well done!

Just breathtaking, the attantion to detail. No idea how you do this, especially keeping track of where everything is. I'd love to see this done first hand.

me too. i know its long exposure, but how its done i have no clue, i would have presumed you would have to stay standing there waving the light but no peeps in the exposure. im obviously clueless.. still havnt managed photoshop so i think this stuff is about 10 years away for me. Tongue amazing though seriously original, iv seen it before, but not like this.
