I like the motion, lines and that the hilt in focus. This was not a Blur outtake. It was taken the week before Blur was announced.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Love the motion blur shown in this fencing match (a foil I believe from what little I can see of the handle and blade). That blur adds to the sense of action going on. I think it would improve the composition if both the blade and the helmet were in better focus...and perhaps a tad bit more focus detail on the fencer on the left as well. The detail is there on the blade and the legs of the lunging fencer, but it just needs a little more on the helmet/head. It is a difficult thing to get the right amount of motion blur to show the action balanced with the right amount of focus on the subjects to showcase some detail, but I believe with that perfect balance this would take this from a good shot to an excellent shot.

Funny how many of the blur challenge out takes are ending up in the Feb FS :)
Great image, and has to be blurred to work. It will however battle to compete with the traditional FS.
