    OK, so here's the quick edit. I like the idea - however, in your photo, the big light source isn't quite strong enough, can see the edge of the light, which takes away some of the effect I think. Also the flare caused a green cast throughout the image (which lens btw ? the 70-200 ?). I made the light stronger and produce a stronger flare in the edit, while removing the green cast from the whole image and only the flare spots are green. Also, perhaps I would have preferred the whole strip to be lighted, rather than just the top section, but maybe difficult with one light - though I do remember seeing an example on the net where someone showed how to do a strip light with just one light, hmmm have to find it again.

    Anyway, to the edit. Excuse the posterisation, caused by editing your small jpeg.

    had a bit of time...



    maybe next time you can try a strip light that covers from top to bottom of the gap or use 2 lights so the whole strip btw the gap is lit
