Challenge: Silhouette At Night II (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2012
Camera: Canon EOS-50D
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
Location: Fort Worth, Texas
Date: Dec 19, 2012
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 2000
Shutter: 1/40
Date Uploaded: Dec 23, 2012

The zoomblur was accidental, but I found it to be the most interesting of the set.

I expect this to tank on popular appeal. Blur is generally a hard sell around here. Hoping it finds a handful of fans, though.

Post-challenge notes:
Quite a surprising performance. One can never really predict how popular appeal will behave.

I really like this. It's like they're coming out at you (even though they're probably going the other way).

It's the COLOR, d00d. The bursts of color sell it in a big way.

I was one of the one's who were less than impressed with the eye strain inducing zoom blur. The composition is interesting but honestly it was OTT with the blur which just hurt my eyes. The red reflectors in the center add interest but the really bright one on the right is totally distracting and takes your eye right away from the action forward in the picture. The best bit is the green reflectors which show motion and lead the eye forward to where the movement is going in the picture.

I didn't comment on it during voting because it was 2 am and I was tired and quite honestly my eyes hurt too much to analyse it that carefully.

Nice movement capture. The one light at right is a little distracting for me but the rest really works.

This has an intense action feel to it, that is intensified by the red lights.

Great technique. Like the zoom-like blur, and tilt. Gives it a dream/sleep impression. Like the splash of reds from the reflectors; adds some tension to the image. My top pick. Hope it does well for you.
