Long Exposure Carnival

Newly acquainted with the 17-40 after a costly repair I wanted to create 2-3 examples of night based long exposure photographs. Set at 15 – 30 seconds it was time to capture the moving lights of a funfair. Pushing the ISO from 100 down to 50 (L) I was able to create cleaner blacks especially in areas that often than people passing within the 30 seconds of exposure.

The aim of the capture was the replace my rather dull motorway long exposures with something that was intense with light. I had limited time to take the photos and I could have spent hours experimenting but the location was considerably busier than the previous day’s long exposures of nature (see here).

I have added these and a number of other photographs to the long exposure set on flickr.
