Cool effects of a long exposure

Keeping your shutter open for an extended period or time has both its benefits and drawbacks in photography.

While it can be difficult to work with a long exposure without a stabilization mechanism such as a good tripod, and you do have to consider the possibility of overexposing the image to the point of a completely blown out shot, this approach can produce some really artistic and eye catch results as well. See the examples below.

Effective usage of long exposure:
