Hopefully, depending on participation, this will become the first of many challenges.
For this challenge I want to see one new shot from you with a shutterspeed of 1/8 s or longer. A tripod is a necessity although setting your camera on something stable will help as well.
Here are a couple examples from my flickr collection to give you an idea. Of course it can be anything from flowers blowing in the wind to a long night exposure of the city. It doens't have to be water related at all, but the subject should be recognizeable and not abstract. Try your best to get a proper exposuer without blowing the highlights.
No restrictions on stabilization technique, but I wouldn't want to see a long handheld exposure that looks wobbly and out of focus. Any stabilization technique is fine, tripod, bean bag, rock, shelf, lean against a tree, etc...
That waterfall is right on Skyline BLVD. Take 40th ave west and hang a right onto skyline, when you get the the hairpin turn look straight ahead. I got it after a good night of rain so it was rushing really good. Now it is down to a trickle. Don't be scared to try some water shots, they are a ton of fun.
I had no idea that there was any sort of waterfall up there.
I played with this challenge a bit last night. I had never shot at such low shutter speeds before, because of the lack of a tripod. But I propped my camera on a couple of different things and that worked. Nothing worth posting, but it was fun trying it out nonetheless.
Okay, I tried about a bazillion different shots for this. I definitely need more practice. I wanted to get something really nice at the beach, but I just couldn't get the right light. So.....instead you get me taking a picture while riding home from the beach. Taken with a shutter speed of 1/8.
