20 Stunning Long Exposure Photographs

Long exposure photography is a very peculiar type of photography. In a long exposure photography, the shutter of a camera is left open for a prolonged amount of time to capture the moving element of a subject. Long exposure gives photos the sense of motion which otherwise the stills would lack. Long Exposure has found a lot of use in late night pictures of light mostly. We see a lot of long exposure photos taken at night. Long exposure is rarely used in the day-light, mostly because keeping the shutter open for too long over-exposes the photos during day time. However at night, the same long exposure turns a dark and boring photo into an interesting one with a whole new dimension.

We have selected a very few bunch of the best long-exposure photos taken by creative photographers. These photographs contain creative light-graffiti art which is only possible by leaving the shutter open for longer than normal. Some of the photos here have as long as a 30 second Shutter speed.
