    I don't usually take long exposures, but the XP-1 and Silver Efex Pro 2 has me exploring photographic ideas I usually shy away from.

    Here are 2 examples

    Yes, that little touch really sets them off.

    I love the mystical look you've captured with these, almost spooky! I love long exposures. I really like SFX-Pro2 but I see many photos that have "haloing" issues when pushed too far. Just something to watch for. This was taken in the late morning. There was too much light for a long enough exposure so I used a neutral density filter to allow me to slow things down a bit.
