Really – if you haven’t tried long exposure for yourself, you should!

Now, if you’re looking to get started, or if you want to improve your long exposure game, it can help to have some inspiration. That’s why we’re sharing this set of 15 utterly breathtaking long exposure shots, which was originally published over at Photzy.
