Long exposure (bulb exposure) shots of various common features close to where I live. The dead tree was an ideal subject, quite a hunting shape against the dark (darker than it seems) night sky. Not wishing to give too many of my tricks away but the tree was ‘painted’ in with an LED bike light, camera white balance set to tungsten to create a very blue effect with the high colour temperature light from the LEDs. This was just a starting point of course, as this imnage has been treated with quite a number of PS filters and a texture layer. I wanted to compensate for noise in the original by making the the finished image look more like a painting render of some kind. The original exposure time was approx 2 mins.
