Long Exposure Photos

I really like long exposure photography so share your long exposure shots here. Tell us something about the photo as well if you like.


I'll start.

Light Trail Runner by UmarPK, on Flickr



Took this shot January of this year, standing on an overpass overlooking traffic on West Pratt St of Baltimore. I remember it was really cold that day, I had gloves on but still my fingers became really cold, and this was my first night experimenting with long exposure photography.

Light Trail Runner 2 by UmarPK, on Flickr


This shot I took the same night, as you can see the result wasn't very smooth but I managed to edit it and still make it look pretty cool and artsy. I was having trouble figuring out what shutter speed I should use and waiting for the perfect rush of traffic to activate the shutter.

You can try Photomatix, it's free but adds watermarks as long as you won't purchase a license.

I too like long exposure photography and have given it a go occasionally. A couple if I may:

Budapest by t_virtamo, on Flickr

This is from Budapest, taken with a 300mm tele lens. I am thinking now that I should have perhaps framed it differently but that is how it ended up at the time. Exposure time was around 1 minute.

From Helsinki. The sea front is frozen, that is why it doesn't have that "smoothed out" long exposure look. Exposure time was around 30 sec.

Nice shot, looks really cool. The only bad thing is for the red lights the light trails are dim at the bottom in contrast to how bright and full the white lights are at the bottom. Though that's how traffic is sometimes.

Thanks! Yes, I agree, the red trail looks a bit lacking. Not sure why it came out that way. Some photoshopping could probably make it more balanced but I am not too keen on doing post work...
