I like to drink coffee alone or to read books alone. I like to take the bus alone as well as to walk home alone. Those things give me times to think and makes my mind open and free. I also like to eat alone or listen to music alone. But whenever I see a child with his/her parents, a happy girl with a her loved one, or a group of friends laughing together, I realize that although I like being alone, I do not like the loneliness. The sky is beautiful, but myself is sad. I just need someone who will not ever leave me ... ever -------------------------------------- It begins again -------------------------------------- Jun -------------------------------------- More: Facebook Page Instagram Behance Tumblr

This is a blend of two 30 second exposures. The base image is naturally lit to produce a silhouette (as I am shooting into the moon), the second is light painted from the right using an orange gel on a flash (fired manually, maybe 5-10 times at full power, though through a diffuser). The lightpainting is then selectively blended in (using luminosity masks) to bring back in the autumnal foliage, as well as adding some definition to the stones, the tussock, and revealing the stones on the lake floor. This is the first image I've processed where I've included light painting at all, and I'm quite happy with how it has worked out. The lightpainting itself lacked skill and refinement, partly because I was in a hurry (down to the last moments of my last camera battery, freezing fingers, waterlogged boots since I had climbed in up to my knees a little earlier, and 3 hours of road ahead of me). But through effective blending the critical elements can be brought in to produce a subtle result.
