OK, OK I did use this one a while back, but it was the best thing I had!
I think I always had this being to hard, as what I always thought of when "Painting with Light" was more along these lines: http://www.nightphotographer.com/index.htm
Of course not sure how you could this with a DigiCam without a whole lot setup. I would think a long shutter speed would give quite a bit of noise no matter what camera you used.
Thoughts?

Fofa,

Okay, I give up. What's this? I like the effect of the lighted circular thingy but I'll be darned if I know what it is. I went to the link but it had a whole bunch of stuff on night photography....

Aloha

It looks to me like a cylindrical block of ice resting on a china plate. I like the photo but I don't understand the comments about doing it with a digital camera and noise. I would think this shot would not require a long exposure unless you are trying to capture changes in the ice.

Please explain what you did and what your objective was.

Thanks.

Cal

My comment on long exposures and noise had to do with the technique used in the link I provided. I had never thought of "painting with light" in any other regards until yall' started this challenge (see learn something new everyday).
Actually this is a block of ice sitting on a plate. This did not take that long of an exposure, EXIF says 1/500's @ F3.2 and ISO 800. I was just trying something different for me at the time, playing with my then new Fuji S5200. Using exiting light and illuminating the ice block with a flashlight. I used the plate in the picture because:
1 - Wife would have killed me if I got melted water all over her antique table
2 - It exagerated the roundness
3 - Wife would have killed me if I got melted water all over her antique table
4 - I didn't want to clean up the melted water mess
5 - Wife would have killed me if I got melted water all over her antique table
