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.

Remember post only one shot here.

Waterfall on Skyline Blvd. Miller Creek I think?

Are you restricting it to images using a tripod or other stabilizing technique????
admin
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...

Hmmm, I'm excited for this one. I need to think of something cool to shoot. You are the master of the water shoot, so I won't embarrass myself trying to do one of those for this challenge. ;-)

What waterfalls are in the picture of in the first one you posted? That is so gorgeous.

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.

Just practicing using slow shutter speeds.........

I was thinking about the challenge on my way home and was faced with a long, long layover in MSP. My sweet wife suggested I go and shoot at the MOA and stop whining. This is one of many tries.

Both are very cool and interesting takes on the subject.

This is what I meant by my question about whether or not you must use a tripod or other stabilizing method -- this one was handheld, right?

Here is my submission. Taken at brighton Beach today around 7:30pm during the heavy fog.

I had to freeze this fly to keep him still for this 10 second exposure.

Actually most of the flower shots I took today where at this speed or slower, but I put this one here because it's an action shot.

This isn't a solid photo, but it was fun - shooting from a moving kayak at slow shutter speeds. I intend to get it right in the future.
