I suspect there are going to be a LOT of "streaming tail light" night shots, and waterfalls.

What do you think?

I guess it's time to finally download the firmware update :P

If you have ND filters.. now's the time people..

I predict that ND filter use will win the day.

Especially the ND-400 (9 stops)and above filters. With those a busy road becomes empty in the middle of the day. :)

uh oh, i think imagineer has an ND that he likes to use a lot, and he has a pretty good reputation. i wouldn't be surprised if he comes up somewhere in the top if he participates in this one

Yep.. Look like Im off to go buy a ND filter.

I predict lots of people will submit photos technically not considered "long exposures".

Lot of medium exposures on their way.

For the photography beginner, would you please explain what a ND filter is.
07/25/2005 03:18:05 AM · #9
trailing lights
trailing fire/flames
waterfalls
clocks and dials, metres

They reduce the amount of light, rather like putting shades on a camera :)

here are some spoilers:

1. an interval photo showing the movement and shape of the moon throughout the night (full sharp focus)

2. an idle person (focus) in the middle of many busy people (blur)

but of course, the usual trailing lights at night photos are still welcomed if they are nicely done.

while it can be done, i'm not sure if they would take it literally that "long exposure" means the shutter must be open for a length of time...

OH JOY I have a large collection of said ND filters and a great Idea {for me} but I'll get rubbished again wait and see.
07/25/2005 04:53:17 AM · #15
My vote goes for trailing lights, absolutely. Some of them are great though, just can't take much more 'wow that car is a comet!'-stuff. ;)
07/25/2005 07:25:52 AM · #16
I have a question. How long do you think the shutter has to be open for it to qualify for a long exposure?

What the hell does that mean? The description says longer than normal...

These threads are really starting to get irritating. To new people these ideas are new. Why discourage them? Why force your oppinion of what the challenge description means on others before the voting occurs? I get really pissed off when I get a comment on my shot that says it doesn't meet the challenge and it quotes almost word for word a posting in these threads...

I read the description... thank you. I know it says Longer than normal, but what is normal? I'm not trying to get nit-picky, but my camera does not have a length of exposure option, although I have gotten it to stay open for as long as 5 secs. I'm just wondering if secs will count, or if we're talking minutes here. Once again, not trying to split hairs, just trying to avoid yet another disappointing challenge entry.

I don't think you'll get a definitive answer on this one. Enter a shot you think qualifies and let it ride?
07/25/2005 08:27:09 AM · #23
I can't enter this challenge (not member) but I would imagine "longer than normal" means, if you put the camera in AUTO mode and take the picture, THAT is what would be normal. Now take the stops down and make is longer, I would think the image would have to show a couple stops change to be able to get the full effect of it.

07/25/2005 08:29:57 AM · #24
Thanks rgo and sabphoto. As long as I'm not the only one who doesn't have a definite answer I can live with that. I guess letting it ride will be my only choice. Thanks again!

Are you one of those people who can't read beyond the first two words of a challenge anouncement? It says 'longer than normal' in the description, as TooCool pointed out already.
And like TooCool, I'm getting pretty fed up with all those predictions too, putting thoughts in voter's minds and condemning the entries before the voting has even started.
