    And I'm always craving for this kind of images.

Did you painted with light?

Excellent image.

Thank you, Protacio. Yes, it's a long exposure with the light "painted" with a small mag flash light. The idea is not mine, I copied the idea from a different photog.

You did great!

About the pattern you draw...is it a profile?

I can see a nose and perhaps the fork is in the mouth...am I right?

I got a D100 and when I do long exposures I need to turn on noise reduction feature in my camera. That process takes a long time. How does the D70 handles that?

Thanks

Thank you Paula!

@Protacio, the profile is not intentional, I was simply trying to make a curvy pattern. Sometimes you luck out :)

The D70 is fairly slow with long-exposures with NR turned on, but it's very quick otherwise. I think getting better CF would help. It doesn't bother me much because these long exposures are set up for the most part anyway, and speed is not important for that (at least not to me).

Congrats again on this striking photo making the finals at BP Ursula!

I use a a D100. I turned off the NR setting in the camera and use a Kodak plug-in called DigiGem Pro for noise reduction instead. The shooting is much faster and the results are much better than in-camera noise reduction.

Thank you, Kip, Patrick, Kelly, Lori, and Roseann.

@ Roseann, the photog of the original knows that I copied him (I asked first). He's good.

THANK YOU all very, very much!! What a nice way to start the day. I live in Western Canada, and we're some of the last last people in the world to "wake up" each day :) Thanks again, much appreciated.

For Protacio,
If no one else has told you how to solve the noise reduction problem on long exposures, here's how. I had the same problem. For digital cameras, increase the ISO to a higher number, say 400 or higher.
