Welcome everybody to the 18th edition of the *Show and Tell - Photo Contest*. Originally hosted by David Yuckert. Thanks again to David for getting this rolling!

Sorry for the delay in getting this episode started. I was away with my family for the holiday weekend and had only very limited internet access. In any case, it is an honor for me to host this, and I thank "Lightmajestic" for hosting Contest # 17. And, of course, thanks to all for the kind comments on the winning entries.

This weeks theme is Time Exposure.

This doesn't mean you have to have light streaks in the picture. Any image where you left the shutter open for more than 1 second qualifies.

This is one of my favorite photos from a trip I took to Washington DC last year. It's a 25 second exposure at ISO 100 f3.5, taken from the center of the national mall. To the naked eye, the details of the building were not visible due to the darkness. But a long exposure brings everything into view. Note the blur of flag waving around at the top of the building.


Here is a link to a slightly larger version 800 x 533 px: ... 90Ai70.jpg

This is the first time I've tried to post a photo here, so I have my fingers crossed that I followed the instructions correctly.
