5. Painting with light?


Contest goal:
In many cases with photography traces are captured by accident. A moving car could leave light traces, for example. It does not have to be just light traces. A photo can exhibit many kinds of traces or streaking patterns and just seem to make the photo subject more interesting. In this photography contest, enter the most creative traces that you can capture. It might be by accident, or a staged shoot, but show us just how artistic traces can be (no photoshop). Also, the photo can be any subject you choose. If it has traces, it is on theme. Be creative and use your imagination. This contest is about traces of light and moving objects which leave traces on the photo due to a longer shutter speed. Good Luck!
