    you know, your avatar is almost poignant to start this thread out.

    here's a pic i took the other night... it's a tree with a low-powered light shooting up at it... thought it looked kinda eerie.

    For what it's worth, I think the 'blur, & all that jazz' is pretty close to worthless, too. Also, it seems that everyone else agrees. At this point, out of 43 votes none of them are for 'blur...'.

    Do you have a link to your photo? I'm curious to see your submission...

    It looks like a pastel piece of something...

    iAlan and Blackhawk, both of those pics were cool, didn't get to reply before the thread "continued" :)

    Good....I showed my friend and he agreed....I would've much rather seen any other shot than that one...besides I think Tazo deserved it as well as myself...oh well, you can't win at everything :) though you can come close...thanks for your input and thanks for keeping me up to date....did you have a submission? If so I'd like to see it again because there were plenty of good shots other than blur....

    No, I didn't know about FM until I started reading this thread earlier this week. Now, if they didn't restrict it to new photos, here's the photo I'd submit for this week's WA:

    Here's another I'd definitely consider:

    But, I'll just have to go out and shoot some new photos for this assignment...

    I dunno. i think the trailing light abstracts get pretty old pretty quick. And pretty boring too.

    What i'd suggest is, if you REALLY wanna do interesting light trails, to try something like this. I won't tell you how to do it... you'll have to figure that one out yourself though. ;)

    it looks like you did an initial exposure and then a severely underexposed zoom in to get the light trails. can you do that with your camera?

    Kinda. Using a ND filter to allow for a long exposure, and just zooming in during like, the last 2 seconds. kinda fun. :)

    what's an ND filter? does it just restrict the light so you can get normal looking photos out of extended exposures in daylight?

    exactly! neutral density filter is the correct term.

    cool if you can find a cheapish one for a cam....

    can you adjust the amount of light they filter, or is it just set like a pair of sunglasses?

    i like light-blur abstract...i can see things how the are with my own eyes...

    though, would love to have the ability to zoom while exposing (damn this digital/optical zoom!!!).

    i'll post soon,



    peace.

    it's set. but you can buy several different gradations or densities.

    I really like this one, a great effect with the sky, windmill, a tree. Nice job Snowy_River! ;)

    Mudbug, I like your Avatar. I greatly enjoyed Spam as a child. Like it best fried with mustard. It was before we know about fatty foods.

    the above is totally unedited in terms of color. below is what it roughly looked like at the time i took it. how do you get a blue hue like that when the room is full of ambient yellow light and the flash is... well, a flash?

    I took this photo last night south of Fort Worth.. I was standing along side the road, strobe light on top of my car pulsing and I snapped a 15" exposure.. I couldn't believe it when I saw it. No photoshop.
