I tested a slow 100 ISO and so called built in ND filter to get long exposure on relatively bright light. Of course I could have used also smaller aperture to get even longer exposure but I found 1/4 second ideal for this.

All I did is turning the camera vertically during the exposure. The results can be rather unexpected. I have noticed I get partially sharp image when I start the movement somewhat right after I have pressed the shutter. Therefore one first gets a steady image recorded while camera is not yet moving, and then during the rest of exposure time the movement becomes recorded.

Of course I took several shots before I got this. So, a lot of experimenting is often needed.

Editing done: So, called LOMO script for GIMP used to get strong vignetting and some added graininess.
