hey, love is in the air!
I know, bad pun. But I was the first to say it, so I get points. Really like the composition and subject choice.
Well done... I agree with alex's comment about composition.
This is so effective
This shot has good colour i like the blue and the way the light is reflecting on the water ,how did you get the hearts
Hi everyone, thanks for your comments. This was a 30 second exposure, at which point, I ran down the pier with my LED key light, and started drawing.

The hardest part is remembering where you started your drawing. smile

The reflection off the water is from me ensuring that the key light hit the water a little.

Its not too easy to draw some nice hearts, but i think u did a great job wink
nice composition and idea.
we all should lightpaint more often !!!!
Lovely photograph ... i love the concept the reflection of light in the water adds good effect to the photograph.. clean and crisp.

I am adding your link to my photoblog

great romantic
Thanks for all your comments smile I really appreciate the time you guys took to leave one.

For those wanting to do a light painting like this. You just need the following.

1) Tripod or surface to put your camera.
2) A light (in my case a LED keychain light)
3) Sunset so you can do a 30 second exposure.

a) Set your camera to a 30 second exposure.
b) Set your count down timer to 10 seconds (to give you time to get into place)
c) Press the shutter, and run into place, start writing pointing the LED light at your camera.
Nice work, the light painting is really well done
This is such a cool shot! Great job!
wow, your site is amazing!

Oh - I asumed the hearts had been added afterwards ... but they were done with a light and long exposure! Brilliant!!

You've give me a few ideas now ...
Nice shot indeed. I too like the reflection in the water.
What a great effect and wonderful colors.
