Awesome work! (:
Oooh, that's cool, we both use the same type of camera.
Did you use any unique filters or lenses for this shot?

Polarized? =/
Is that an effect on the camera or something?
(Sorry, I'm really new at this Photography thing.)

basically its a filter that goes over your lens which controls the amount of reflection on certain objects, its great for the sky and water

Oh, yes, filters.
That's really cool.

I will actually being investing in some filters. Do you have any suggestions on which ones I should purchase?

Studio5 Featured By Owner May 27, 2008
you've always got to have the UV filter mostly just to protect the lens, then get a polarizer. i think im going to get an Neutral Density filter too but i need to save up. Those i think are the best three.


the other colored filters are cool but they can be recreated in photoshop pretty flawlessly

Oh okay! I'll be sure to check those out!
Won't a Macro filter be good too?

yea probably i don't have one, but those are much bigger, i wouldnt call it a conventional filter, but i have always wanted one, you should try it out and then tell me all about it :)

Can you teach me how to do this? I've been trying to learn how to take long exposure shots... but so far it's like trying to to take a picture inside an active volcano.

it depends what kind of camera you have. but basically, go out at night with a tripod, the darker the better, and set your camera to manual mode or TV,

on manual you will have to control the f-stop, in that case i suggest a high f-stop like f-22, so everything is in focus,
in TV the f-stop is automatically determined.

Then adjust it to the longest possible exposure setting generally 30sec or Bulb (which comes on most DSLR). And then take the picture and wait. It's actually pretty easy, except you got to take a bunch to figure out if it overexposed or not.

Hope that helps a little

Um, I'm just using a point-and-shoot... I can't adjust the f-stop...

then just set that to the longest possible exposure, go out at night, set it on tripod and then proceed to take an awesome shot

Beautiful long exposure, the cars look like cables of light
I think it reminds me a commercial I once saw on TV, about an internet service, with all that speed of light and etc
