Tree on a dark night

After being inspired by an article in Digital Photo, I set out with my camera, tripod, remote shutter release and torch in hand to paint with light. This was the result. After a few practice runs and a lot of trial and error.

Post processing I lightened the sky in the background and some of the branches that weren’t caught by the torch to add some depth and added a film grain filter. I was going for the old photo style.
