I took this the first day of the challenge. Our dog, Biscuit, can get excited and will run in circles in our back yard. I took it with my cell phone as she zoomed past me. I took a lot more pictures during the week with my Canon, but I kept coming back to this one. I like the textures, the one one visible paw and the curl of hair by her ear. While it may be a cheap imitation, it features some themes you can find in Mr. Spurgeon's work: 1) the family dog, 2) head out of frame, and 3) unique perspective.

I did not do a lot to it of processing. I did not crop any, but I did clone out the tip of my shoe that I caught as I shot down at her. Converted it to B/W in SEP 2 and tweaked a few settings.

Frenetic and incredibly joyful! Love the little curls amidst all the straight lines.

Easily a favorite. The more I take it in the more frequently it shifts, in and out of reality. Not a speck of wasted blur or canvas.

I thank you with a Sterling Sturgeon

Love the interpretation. The blur lines blend so well together to imply frenetic energy. I love that curl at the bottom center of the shot.

Gorgeous texture and swirl. I debated entering images like this, but I thought they were more ME than ben... so it's gratifying to see someone else put this in. If this is my wife, you are a genius. You must have inverted it, and that made all the difference. 9

Cool movement. I like how the motion blur of the dog is contrasted by the motion blur on the ground from the camera.

Is it a running dog? Love the bg texture.

I'm absorbed by the circulating, swirling energy of this -- two or three axes at work. Dizzying. A delightful delirium.

How everything changes, feet never touching the ground.
Going round n' round
I think this was an Aerosmith song that I used to like ... not sure how it wound up here or why but I like the picture too.

Just utterly amazing in every way. Makes my head spin, and makes me feel anxious for my knees. In my top favourite five of the challenge. 10

Indeed. And a Rastafarian dog to boot.

This is one of those I could stare into for a long time. I see something different about it. Makes a story. Nice one. 7

Beautiful strokes of light with a grain and motion that I can almost reach out and touch, but it slips from my view in the blink of an eye.

Beautiful blur, processing also does him justice as well, I think. 7
