Anyone see the TalkTalk Adverts on X Factor. I dont think it is slow shutter speed photography but its kinda similar for videos.

Here’s one I took at a dance concert:

Breathtaking equals the new ‘awesome’. Did any of the photos actually take your breath away? – Err, no.

One could cynically think that the titles are just made up to increase views and ad revenue… no?

wow! Awesome love it

great shots! I experimented with this a bit myself, this is the best one, I think: http://www.flickr.com/photos/antonhaase/4125682656/

Amazin, any chance to get those photos in 1080p resolution? :P

I shot this one near Central Park just over a year ago. I was going for something similar to the Enterprise warping away in the old movies.

Incredible shots….really gets you thinking about the possibilities. Thanks for sharing…

Is there a way to get the full size images? I want to save one as my desktop, but need a higher resolution picture than the ones posted here. Any ideas?

Some were obviously not just photography. Which is a shame they made this list. But bravo to the ones that stayed true to the art.

I have a whole series of these photographs using strobe flash.

It gives me some ideas…that’s what photos are supposed to do. I like that no photoshop was used.

I was playing around with slow speed light photography too…. does this make the cut?

I think the flaming wall was perhaps the best in the pack … it’s the most unusual, and by far the hardest thing a person might try to see with their own eyes, which gives the photo an ethereal feel.

Frozen motion? Static dynamics? Or just great photography? What do you call these wonderful creations? This is all so thrilling and exciting!
