    You just have to start carrying a tripod like everyone else - this carrying around walls for support has got to stop!

    In response to Elliots comment my back was against a wall and parked vechicles spoilt the picture. I agree with Jade the longer exposure would have been better. I tried in black and white this got rid of the extra colours/light sources but didnt have as much punch.

    I'm not sure this fits the theme exactly as the Challenge defined it. There is one central light (source) but also a lot of secondary supportive sources. I really don't think this works as an image though in any event since the subject light is dead centre, the balacony wall a little too blown, and adds an odd colour cast against the rich tones of the rest of the image. Also I find the image not as sharp as it should have been. This one I think calls for two exposures, one for the balcony and one for the rest of the structure, then combined in PP. Alternately, a longer shutter at lower ISO might have worked out better.
