Whirling Dervishes

This was one of my first attempts at long exposure to capture motion, at night. It is also the first image of mine to ever win an award; this won 2nd place in the 2012 Utah State Fair.

I've never tried to duplicate this with any of my newer cameras, even though I took this in 2009 with a Canon Rebel XS and the kit 18-55mm lens. I'm sure I could get a technically better photo, maybe one that doesn't have the highlights blown out as much, but this was the first, and the first that ever won an award.

This image holds a special place in my heart, because it's the one that convinced me that maybe I could do photography, and be successful at it.
