    Having looked into creative composition, it basically just means surprising angles and unexpected placements in a photo. Not sure any of my own examples are right, but here's a few I thought might work....

    @rancidpunk, just wondering Lee how you are getting on with the pixel stick, assume that was what you used in you car shot above? Have you used it much?

    I bought one a good while back, other than having a play with initially it hasn't seen the light of day since..

    Mine was a home made job, bit of conduit, light changing led strip and gaffer tape!

    I think the shot above was one of the last times I used it though, so glad I didn't spend out on a pixel stick. I've had the best intentions with light painting, but somewhat lacking in the execution of those intentions!
