Contest goal:

Night time is wonderful and a pain to photographers. It depends on what you want. Night time is great for long exposure, but horrible for portraits without proper lighting. Try and use the advantages and disadvantages of taking photos at night to create a unique shot. It MUST be obvious it is night and that your photo is long exposure. You must be outside or there must be a window to show that is is night time. You can use flash or natural light, but be careful with the flash, you can create some heavy unwanted shadowing and harsh whites.

Put the exposure time in the description.

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

friiskiwi: With the high ISO available, night shots are possible with out long exposure, what is considered long exposure, and do we have to state our exposure time. ( 5 years and 1884 days ago )
