Pictures usually freeze only a moment of our lives, but long exposure photography is completely different. Its aim is to highlight the effect of passing time. Since no one can agree on what “long” actually is (a 30-minute picture of a static object might not be distinguishable from a short exposure), the inclusion of motion (mostly through light) is the cornerstone of adding intrigue to these images.

Photo Vide has compiled a list of some of the most epic examples of long exposure photography, and it shows our world in a whole new light. From a departing tram to the vast Milky Way, these shots stand out from the rest for their creativity and innovation. Scroll down and take as long as you need to enjoy the images!
