A post or two back we took a look at some photos people had taken in the "dark" and used time exposures in order to just get enough light to make a photo show up. And you remember that it was really fairly easy. All you had to do was set your camera for a longer exposure and/or "open" the lens up (increase the aperture number) a little more. The big caveat was, and it was a BIG one, that you needed to use a tripod in order to prevent the "shakes" from blurring the picture.
Well, I've found a few more photographs, which DO use the same technique; but, not only to just get more light – these use it to get a softening to the picture, especially for water.
Take a look and see what using that tripod you've started to carry with you can do anytime you stumble upon some water in your travels!
Suprising Long Exposure photography Examples
With all of our now film-less cameras we have these days, which don't cost for either film or processing, what have we got to loose by trying a few longer exposures on a shot or two? After a few tries, we might find that we like a few of them.

This is a truly unique and unusual presentation that I found while looking at TED talks. The lady is a true master of her craft and her presentation defies explanation of how she did it.
I wish the resolution on the link was just a little better at full screen, but I can guarantee that you've never seen anything like this before; so much so, that the TED audience gave her a standing ovation. (So don't miss the last part)
