Sorry to bump the thread, was just trawling through and found this. Looks to me like a fairly ordinary shot when you're using flash. The flash
illuminates the scene to pull out foreground detail, but the shutter remains open for a few more tenths of a second to expose background detail that
won't necessarily have been illuminated.
If you look closely at some of the wisps, they join up with white hotspots in the image. It looks like after the flash fired the camera was lowered
due to the user assuming the picture had been taken, when in fact it was still exposing for shadow detail. This resulted in the lighter areas of the
room leaving the streaks you see on the image.
