When I started writing this article, I thought that long exposure photography was overdone to death, and that the hardest part would be selecting 25 best shots from thousands of incredibly good photos. Wrong! It may be overdone, but good shots are incredibly rare. So my advice to you (and even to myself) – don’t be turned off by the fact that everybody does it! Only few guys do it right.

Now, before you grab your camera and go out to take those beautiful long exposure shots, you need some inspiration! So here are 25 Breathtaking Examples of Long Exposure Photography to get your creative juices flowing.
