Serpentarius is an old name for the constellations Serpens and Ophiuchus. It literally translates to 'the serpent-holder' and relates to old Greek mythology, which is something I briefly studied in high school. Relevantly, this was taken in a class session for Photography and turned out much better than I thought it would. Conditions were awful in the classroom for capturing images, and props were scarce. The figure in the image is a classmate of mine.

I apologise to those with no interest in space and related topics, as it seems to be a dominant theme for my recent work.

This works very well for me :nod: I like the abstracted and blurred figure and how it interacts with the light painting. Much can be imagined as to what the scene means and that is the beauty of the piece. Nice work :clap:
