    Rules:

    1. You may only submit one photo per contest.

    2. The contest runs for exactly one week, from the first time stamp of the first post in the thread (this will be made by the winner of the previous week's contest).

    3. Please refrain from commenting on the photos submitted in the contest. A good photograph is one that can appeal to someone who may not know much about the technical aspects of photography, so it would be best if the judge isn't swayed by someone else's opinion of the photograph.

    4. The judge will choose his/her favorite at the end of the week, place a post listing it, and include a short synopsis of why he/she chose that photo. The winner is then responsible for choosing a new topic and starting a new contest thread, which will again run for exactly one week.

    This week's theme is: Really Slow or Fast Shutter


    A list of previous contests and their winners can be found here:

    30seconds exposure, leaning on a hand rail no tripod...
    This is in a mine where they showed a light and sound show. That "hole" is 120m (yes meters from top to bottom) tall!

    Turn your long exposure noise reduction on. Those blue dots in the image are from long exposure noise (not the normal noise). If you have noise reduction turned on, it will eliminate all of that in-camera.

    Not sure if 1/5 is slow enough, but this is one of my most favorite images captured with blurred effects...
