I assumed most entries on long exposure will be about lights or water, so I thought I try something with my hair...had hoped I could have used a slower shutterspeed but the flying hair effect could not be captured as I hoped...but it's still a slower shutterspeed than I would normally use ;) Used only one slightly lit softbox from the left for the atmosphere as it would have gotten too bright otherwise...

remarkable shot. I'm not sure about the composition. looks like a "dpc composition" to me. but the capture and look of this is great.

Looks like a water painting rather than a picture. Well done and love it!

I love the painterly feeling of this. The colors are gorgeous and her expression is intriguing.

Cool shot, nice pose, strong colors. But I don't see how a long exposure really helps here; I'd have preferred to see this with the motion frozen rather than blurred, or perhaps it's simply not blurred enough. The overall effect is one of softening--there should be something sharper here. Motion blur doesn't have to mean that nothing is well focused. (6)

yes, this is nice, and with good color and not terribly conventional composition :)
