Our long exposure contest seeks to find the very best images that have gorgeously blurred motion. Whether it's clouds, water, traffic, or something in between, give us your best shots that show movement over time. They can be landscapes or cityscapes, wide-angle or telephoto - there's no limit! Just show us how you can use your camera's shutter speed to create dreamy, ethereal images that knock our socks off!
For a half-century, Singh-Ray filters have been the go to filters for photography enthusiasts. With finely-crafted optical glass, these filters offer you high performance without image degradation. That means that the images you create retain their detail and sharpness while having more visual impact and drama. Singh-Ray filters are handcrafted in the United States, and the company is committed to continuing its tradition of being a pioneer of innovative products for photographers.
The grand prize winner gets a Singh-Ray 77mm Mor-Slo 5 Stop Solid ND filter that will help turn clouds, water, cars, and other moving objects into beautiful blur. Open your aperture wider to limit the depth of field and create gorgeous bokeh while also minimizing diffraction on long exposures. It's the ideal companion for photographers that want to create drama-filled images. You can even use this filter for videography!
The second runner up gets a $150 Amazon Gift Card, and the third runner up gets a $50 Amazon Gift Card. Buy some photography gadgets, get some photography books, or spend your gift card on whatever you want!
All winners will also be featured in the PT Hall of Fame where prize-winning images will be promoted and get global recognition. Winners will also get the PT Hall of Fame Badge on their PhotographyTalk profile.
