This is another image taken from the car while going 70 mi/hr. Panned the gate. Surprised to see a blurry basic editing shot do so well in this challenge. Thank you for all of the comments- much appreciated.

Thanks so much Ben for the sturgeon.

the ecstasy of the etching tool, and a breathing wash of colour.

Woohoo, I do love to see a basic edited shot do well in Expert challenges :-) Well done and congrats on the ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Of all the blurred posthumous style images submitted on DPC this struck a note (pardon the pun) even without reading the title or knowing the song/band. It is possible to make it out. Well done.

I so wish I could do blur like this! I'm going to practice. I need, however, to find a driver, as trying to do this while driving hasn't worked out well just yet...

Many congrats on the ribbon and the sturgeon!

A melody within metal that may not always be heard, or felt.

Wow, get in the shelter, looks like the end, seriously good image, top marks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/20/2011 12:00:51 PM
I had to stop and play the music here since the image is appealing without sending me to Heavy Metal - but what do I know on the subject anyway? I like the whipped image and probably with a cooler filter would have been more poignant.

I really like this, I can feel the movement and almost hear the wind.

Too beautiful for words.

Don't know the band, but wonderful image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This might be my favorite blurry image of all time. Spectacular scratchiness. Would love to know how you achieved it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2011 01:33:12 PM
Make a great cover.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2011 01:09:16 PM
This would be gorgeous framed, such wonderful lush colors. Appealing to the eye.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2011 12:15:51 PM
Wow that music is really intense (can't find a better word).
I like the movement in the image and the stormy feel - definitely fits the title, as the challenge dictated. 7 for that. IMO it's way too pretty for the song though.

Pretty cool processing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2011 05:42:04 PM
This is in my Top 3. One of the few images that made me stop and comment. Absolutely love the colors and tones, and the treatment you've given it to create the movement in the trees. Very nice.

Oh I adore this. I'd have it on canvas hanging on my walls!!!

This is actually pretty cool! I like how it's painted.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/16/2011 12:14:36 AM
Wow. Lovely image! I have no idea whether it relates to Heavy Metal, but... I'm not voting anyway... so my opinion may, or my not, count to you. :D
