Your Best Long Exposure Photo Contest

It’s time again to look through your best images and get ready for another fun photo contest. There were some great suggestions you all had on our Facebook wall for the theme on this months contest, thanks everyone! I have decided to have the theme be on long exposures.

You can enter until Friday May 13th and end at 12:00 midnight PST. We will have two winners again. One winner will be voted on by the team here at Digital Photo Buzz and the other you will all be able to vote on your favorite. Voting will open up on May14th for 1 week. The winners will get a $100 from Black River Imaging, our awesome sponsor.

For a long exposure image in this contest please use an image that was taken with a shutter speed of 1/8th of a second or slower. Other than that you can upload any type of long exposure (or light painting) photo. I am sure there will be some awesome images and can’t wait to see them! Also if you need a little inspiration for some long exposure images check out these great examples:

Also only one entry per person. NOTE: Once you click submit the image does need to be approved and may take a few hours, just click the submit button once we will get your entry online soon.

  1. Hi,

    Contest photo didn’t seem to upload after clicking submit, nor did my inquiry to complain about it after clicking send on the contact form. What’s up? thanks

  2. I added a photo for the contest, but it did not appear on the list!

  3. These do take a few hours to be approved, yours is there now 🙂

  4. i uploaded my photo too but it didnt appear. 🙁

  5. do we have to sign in to vote ?? or we just have to press vote ??

  6. You will just be able to press vote, however voting doesn’t open up until the 14th. Come back soon!

  7. The image I uploaded has been cropped by the upload process and has reduced the impact of the image. Can I replace it with a more suitable cropped version before I upload it?

  8. Some cool long exposures here, love them all, congrats to Carl

  9. Cheers Pete 🙂
