Ghost in the machine

.

This image is mostly untouched. It wasn't created in Photoshop, but with camera techniques. It's a long term exposure (20 seconds) on a deck lit only by a kitchen window. Having set the camera and begun the exposure, I sat down for a counted ten seconds and then removed myself from the scene. Photoshop was used only to crop away assorted deck debris and clutter.

The result.... a ghostly image staring out of the screen. It was taken for a friend... to be a background and reminder... "I'll be here for you".
