I just am uploading a simple sample of what you can do. Using a cheap flash light so its not what you can do with stuff such as lazer pointers or stronger lights.
At night
Set your shutter to a slow speed. I used 8 seconds. point it towards whatever you want I used a tree.
take the light and as you push the button to take the pic and draw what you want on the tree I did a simple heart to show that you can do any shape. trace the outline kinda slow and it leaves the perfect trail of the light.
I've done smily faces but, none are uploaded. Also you can tell its night because of the stars and dark clouds emitting behind the tree. I think it is a very open ended concept depending on creativity

with regards to the poll

size is set due to bandwidth on the server, server space costs money, so small images mean cheaper bills

if u want to post bigger images u can do as most people do, link from your own server or host then size doent matter

PhotosI store on photobucket just require you to left mouse click on 'share it'

then right mouse click on the post a reply page and select 'paste'

the picture is then inserted or rather 'the code for the picture' is pasted

onto the post a reply page and the photo can be seen when you review

your message. The host site downloads the photo onto the web

page thereby conserving server bandwidth and the photo-host site

is 'FREE' as are many other photo-host sites.



Yes I agree with Gary it conserves the sites resources 'site searches

and on-board photo's' slow down the server and that's when we get the

delays we dont like, due to searches on the server andbandwidth

downloadlimitations......:idea:....musket.


PS. the poll counter doesn't seem to be working as I selected 3 :-)

it's looks like poll have dragged everyone's attention from your photo.
I like the idea and tee itself, it's look very interesting IMHO! So did you used laser pointer or something else? as I've got very different results from laser pointer but I had different tree and different kind of tree. Wonder what ISO and aperture you've used?

I think it would be perfect photograph if:
- if on the left bottom corner there would be no border from the road or something else
- there would be no tree on the right as it doesn't fit into composition IMHO
- tree wouldn't have broken log on it
- maybe too much of black empty sky on the top of the tree

And regarding poll, I think that size should remain the same as it permit to upload photo to gives possibility to upload picture of size which let to understand it conception and ask point of view of other people about it. And being webmaster myself I perfectly understand that bigger size would require more diskspace and more bandwidth which as result would hardly hit the pocket. So if you really wish to have bigger pictures just follow advices and use own host or image hosting services.
