Picture of river using a 10 seconds long exposure

October 22nd, 2007 · 11 Comments

10 second long exposure picture of a river
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera October 21st 2007. Click image for larger view.

In this picture I have used a 10 seconds long exposure to create the foggy and metallic look on the river. I love the look running waters gets from long exposures.
It has to be pretty dark to be able to get long exposures or use a special filter. I don’t have a filter like that so I had to wait for twilight. The forest seems very different when it gets dark. A bit spooky 😉

Check out this long exposure picture I took of a rocky beach.

    Great shot. I am just started. And Panasonic FZ20 is my choice. I like to take portrait more…..but sometimes……very lazy. 🙂
