Long Exposures can be fantastic photographs and you can also be creative in making abstract shots.
For Long Exposures it is important to have a tripod or something solid and steady to sit your camera on. The second most important thing is to set your camera to 2 seconds or 10 seconds auto count down and/or a cable release, instead of risking camera shake when pressing the shutter.
Below are a few examples of what you can do with long exposure times:
