And now for something different

Here is this weeks photo for my 52 week project. I think this makes 5 so far. I really went for something quite different this time. I actually took this photo last night (Thursday) while my son and I were playing in the snow. I used the on camera flash (shudder!) to get him sharp and still and then the yard light was behind him. After the flash went off I had a 2 second exposure and moved the camera around, effectively light painting with the yard lamp. I’ve never actually done a light painting photo before, though have known how for a long time.
I don’t entirely know why I like how this photograph turned out, but I do. I think part of it is Tristan’s expression as he looks into the sky along with the totally odd light rings around him. I decided, for no apparent reason besides whim, to make this shot look like an old polaroid, or cross-processed print.
I’d really like to hear what you think about this. Let me know in the comments below.
