A beauty among many strong entries. I think the lighting was unique here, and assume you waited for the right timing to get that visible light ray in the room. Well done and Congratulations.

I'd like to thank all the entrants. I enjoyed this challenge and hope to try doing long exposures like this later this year.

grayowl: Would you increase? The challenge has been filled up as stated in the additional rule.

duh... I mean entries that did not have slow enough shutter speeds.

I will add 10 more slots tomorrow and at the same time I will DQ those entries that have slower shutter speeds than required.

Direct link | Posted on Apr 1, 2014 at 17:12 UTC

For those reviewing the entries, There are a couple with no shutter speed, and a couple that are less than the 1/4 minimum. I've given these entrants time to re-enter and I am checking the actual shutter speeds where missing.

Since the challenge is full I didn't want to DQ without giving them each a chance at a re-entry.

gfa5775: Hi Barb,
Can you clarify the minimum time, is it 25 seconds or .25 seconds as in 1/4 second? It is hard to tell if the decimal point is for the min abbreviation or meant as a fraction.
Thanks

Sorry, I see what you mean. The minimum is 1/4 second for this challenge.

Good luck!
