This is in response to a recent thread pleading for re-engaging the Critique Club. By the time I got here, the current queue was empty and this image came up as one that didn't get done in earlier challenges. It seems odd to be critiquing my DPL team captain, but here goes...

I'm a big fan of slow shutter motion blur and this is no exception. The painterly effect (as noted in your title) is strong and evocative. The white balance "mistake" presents a very cohesive color palette and the graceful arc of the wind motion implies an almost wave like motion across the frame. Lots to like, but for my two cents, the color coherence and graceful motion carries the day.

Great mistake. I gave it 9 - one of my three nines in this challenge.
I loved the search light effect.
