You are one hell of a portrait taker.. love the different poses on each of your subjectd.. just the way you pose them makes it so good ... I am not a blur person lover but this is my favorite blurr... due to Paul's comment I was able to learn more of the techincial aspects of what it is , which makes it more powerful to me.

After reading Paul's comment I'm not sure if there is much to add :) You definitely did get a high score for this one from me.

Didn't have time to comment on this earlier. Sensitive, idiosyncratic portrait of the man in the foreground. His brother in the background, blurred fore and aft, moves this image even more out of the ordinary. This latter person suggests a doppelganger of the man in the foreground.

This image has caused me to stop and pay attention. That means it is in my 7-10 voting band. (Voted earlier)

Additionally, it is highly interesting/eclectic meaning it keeps me here long enough to offer a longer comment and a vote of 8 or more.

This is one of my 10s - I like it very much. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. The mix of static clarity and background motion blur - inspired and effective.
2. The interesting subjects - I like how they both have hats as a common link.
3. Lovely gentle toning.
4. Great lighting - fully illuminated but with some shadows to give a sense of depth too.
5. The square crop - making the most of the restricting DPC real estate.

Overall, a really well conceived and executed image.
