Light Trails (NOT stars)

This challenge closed over 3 years ago.

The Challenge

A late Friday challenge ;-) We had challenges for Star Trails, so that’s why we should now look back to Earth for them. In the northern hemisphere is still getting dark relatively early, so car trails could be photographed still without staying up too late – just be safe when you do it. And they don’t have to be car trails – play with torches and long exposures, have fun. Cities are obvious candidates, but as you can see from the avatar, other landscapes are suitable for this experiment as well

  1. must show light movement/trail
  2. must be a photograph, obtained in camera and NOT by post-processing (no zoom burst added effect, please)
  3. no star trails as the subject, that was a different challenge, thanks
  4. no illuminated contrails as the subject, please – it’s not what we’re after

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with added writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!
