Last night I ventured out to the Orphanage at Foster Falls in New River Trail State Park.

For the above two photos, I would stand or sit in position for about half of the 15 second exposure.  Making sure I was in the moonlight with a darker area behind me helps my transparent figure 'pop' a bit, but not too much.

For the below photo, I stood in place for one exposure and let my shadow be captured on the wall on the left(a light from nearby in Foster Falls light me up).  I then took a separate exposure without me in it, and simply blended the shadow from the previous image into the 2nd exposure.

Thanks for looking.
