A great photographic experiment, learning experience and results! I like them both.

To experiment with Long Exposure shots indoors, I set up the Camera and Tripod for a 10 second exposure and just walked back and forth in front on the camera for the whole 10 seconds. Parts of me are Opaque, but you can also see right through parts of my legs (20% Opaque, maybe) and see the furniture I walked in front of. Those results have great potential for interesting outdoor or cityscape shots.
