Some of the most gorgeous long exposures we've seen lately were taken just yesterday. These painting-like photos feature ballet dancers at the “Emerging Dancer 2013″ competition final in London. Photographer Leon Neal of AFP/Getty Images took these creative shots which show a handful of dancers gracefully moving across the stage.
Six finalists prepared and performed two solos in front of a panel of judges at Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall. Though Neal didn't capture any long exposures of the overall grand prize winner, Nancy Osbaldeston, he did take some beautiful shots of Laurretta Summerscales, the recipient of the People’s Choice Award (above and directly below).
