Sony Alpha Only - Slow Shutter - Hand Held

Challenge #3 in the Sony Alpha Only series. Hosted by Pike Pictures.
Challenge has finished
Steady Shot INSIDE stabilisation is a feature on all alpha cameras, helping both reduce camera shake and allow you to use much lower shutter speeds without ruining your images. It also opens up a whole world of creative flexibility. In this challenge we are looking for the best hand held image that shows use of a slow shutter speed.

5th place
While capturing a jamming gig of a no-name band in rural Bavaria, this 2 second exposure shot, handheld, benefitted from SSS to sample the stage background and the ambient stage lights, while a rear-curtain bounced fill flash imprinted the "freeze frame" of the guitarist while he was in full jam.
