      Im learning that there are infinite possibilities for creative images using a long exposure time. I would love to see your favorites that you've done (or ones you like that you didn't personally do).

      I only have a few. I plan on doing a lot more once I own some good lighting.

      Here are the 2 I like the most that I've done in the short time that I've owned a camera:

      Migrating crows spent 3 days in these trees by the thousands! 30 second exposure @ 2:00am (city glow on the foggy night made for a nice effect):

      Here's one from the other night.

      I can't be doing too many until I get my sensor cleaned.

      unfortunately the fire truck shook the ground just enough so it didn't come out as crisp as I'd like

      where's the fire?

      This was about four minutes if I remember right. I'm in a ruined auditorium in Gary Indiana. The only light was coming from the streetlights outside (and next time I'll bring something to block that little strip of light on the floor on the left).

      not nearly as good as some of these, but I have only had the camera a couple months and being full time in school doesn't leave much time.

      These were taken at a old salt mine in Poland "Wieliczka" about 135m under ground.

      and a crappy result, but maybe someone is curious

      shutter left open
      strobe fired into the sky at random moments

      those white ghosties in the sky, are the bats i was trying to get images of,
      ... well, ... better images than this, but i never have gone back to pursue it



      at actual pixels
