Hey Georgie,

This shot looks very good. I particularly like the lighting.

Is is me or is it a little blurry tough? Why did you choose the f/14 aperture and 50sec. exposure?

Nonetheless it looks great. Good job! :)

I put the bulb on a white surface (table) and there was a wall behind it... focused and turned the lights off so the room was pitch black... pressed the shutter then waved a torch around 8) for about 3 seconds and left it for the next 47 seconds ...
