    For those who don’t know, this is a photography technique… it’s called a “long exposure” photograph. Typically, moving elements in the frame and blurred and stretched.

    You may have seen other photos of streets or cities that show long lines of light along the streets.[email protected]/4242625296/sizes/l/in/[email protected]/

      Long-exposure photography:
      When a scene includes both stationary and moving subjects (for example, a fixed street and moving cars or a camera within a car showing a fixed dashboard and moving scenery), a slow shutter speed can cause interesting effects, such as light trails.
      Long exposures are easiest to accomplish in low-light conditions, but can be done in brighter light using neutral density filters or specially designed cameras.

        @Anonymous The begging and handout syndrome created and fed by Skerrit does not encourage anyone to work hard; NOT EVEN YOU. Why then are you always at the Red Clinic?

    Was this photo shopped? This doesn’t even look real to me. Like a drawing or something. Maybe the photographer would like to explain to us simple folk how he got the ‘pikchore’ to look like this?

      This was not a snapshot from a point and shoot camera, this was a manually set from a dslr camera. In dark lighting like in the rain forest, the exposure time (length of time the lens lets light in to make an image inside the camera) of the photo needs to be lengthened to allow enough light in. If you know what the aperture or f-stop means (usually f4-22), it means how closed the lens is to letting in light, think like an eye squinting. So with this photo, I had a very small aperature opening, requiring the lens to be open for longer to allow enough light in to make the photo not just dark. This one was roughly 5 seconds, which turns moving objects such as clouds, water, people, turn in to smooth blurred looks. Google “long exposure” if you would like to know more.
