I think this is a stand out entry. so many are lovely, and this one just pops. I love it. Thank you for entering.
Lovely entries everyone. Thank you and thanks to the honest voting that I see. This is a pleasure to review from there 1st to last place entry. I find them all to be pleasing and unique. It was joyful to host this one and while the photo's are in a voted order , they are all very very strong and beautiful.
Another with an interesting , yet more subtle play with lighting here. Congratulations on 2nd place in a field of strong entries.
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.
Hi - I like this - night detail is great! Congratulations on the win also
Really interesting challenge!! Glad I saw it while voting was open.
I had no idea you could do something dramatic with steel wool. I now know have something fun to do this summer sometime thanks to this challenge idea. Thank you!
I'd like to thank all the entrants. I enjoyed this challenge and hope to try doing long exposures like this later this year.
Congratulations on the win. This is just lovely.
I think it is really difficult to keep the focus of a fast moving object. This is nicely done. Congratulations on 1st place also!
Nice!!! Catching a reflection is a plus! Great photo!!!
I am amazed at the eye - more complicated than I thought. Congrats on the win here. It's a great photo!
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.
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.
This says, old , forgotten and not thrown away. Nicely composed photo here. congratulations on the runner up spot. I think the top 3 were all contenders.
Classic, and well executed. Congratulations on a win here!
