Creating Abstract Backgrounds

In last week's P&P Weekly I wrote about a post that John Nack had on photos taken while the camera was being tossed into the air with a long exposure.

While I'm not about to toss my new D200 into the air, this posed an interesting idea for creating abstract backgrounds. So, while sitting at my desk I set my camera to Shutter Priority, with a 5 second exposure at f/24 and an ISO of 100. After a little work in Lightroom to adjust color and overall tone and to add a slight vignette I ended up with a cool background. Give it a try!
