    I'm waiting for the experts' opinions too, but it's a great image, and it feels as if there's a mystery or hidden story behind it.

    I can't see your Exif data. How long was the exposure, and did your human subjects just stand still, or did they move slightly on purpose to get that wonderful ghost effect?

    Re: a Long Time Ago

    Thank you Sahil and Seriche. I'm glad you like the photograph,

    The exif:
    105 s
    f/18.0
    ISO 100
    17mm

    The ghosting was intended although it was inevitable. These human subjects are my sister and me( although when shooting and post-processing the awkward leftovers of the long gone relationship I had came to my mind). In order to do the shot while I'm in it myself I had to start the exposure, climb alongside the door, stand still, climb my way back and stop the exposure. That's where the ghosting comes from.

    Jeroen, I love it! It caught my eye right away in the mini-comp. It's really interesting in many aspects. Experts... who needs 'em!

    Thank you Mary. Although the one in the mini competition is a different one than these. The one in the mini competition is without the people in it ;-).

    Once we find any, we'll invite them to comment!

    Not looking on my own computer, so can't really make an informed comment, but it looks good.

    I've seen the technique used before, one photographer photographed his young daughter standing in a dimly lit basement with only a single light source, so that the subject appears as a ghost. Nice setup.

    Hi Jeroan,

    Thank you so much for supplying the Exif data. (I try to learn as much as I can from them, especially with long exposures).

    The ghosting was intended although it was inevitable. These human subjects are my sister and me( although when shooting and post-processing the awkward leftovers of the long gone relationship I had came to my mind).
    It's interesting to know that you saw meaning in it too. It's the kind of image that's open to so many kinds of interpretation, which adds further to its appeal.

    In order to do the shot while I'm in it myself I had to start the exposure, climb alongside the door, stand still, climb my way back and stop the exposure. That's where the ghosting comes from.
    My goodness! That sounds just like Young's 'Double-Slit Experiment' on a super-atomic scale

    Thanks for explaining the technique. Can't wait to try something similar.

    Yep, got back home and it looks as good as I thought it would.

    One thought - The strip of land, as it crosses the figures of you and your sister, is darker than it is on each side of you. I'm not sure why that is so and I wonder if that can be brought back so that it is the same in tone as it is at each side?

    Ask as much as you'd like about it Seri. I've done quite some long exposures so maybe I can help you out with some things.
