I went to Colonial Williamsburg during the day and waited for the carriage. I stack two neutral density filters to try to have a longer exposure where the carriage was blurred and the house and trees where stationary. I used Analog efex for the processing.

It was a lot more difficult than I thought. The blur disappeared in most of my shots -- too long of an exposure.

I would have liked to have had the carriage ghosted and the rest not. I tried doing this. I set a long exposure, took a photo of the horse at the hitching post, covered the lens, and was going to take a photo after it left. But I only had one chance at it, and had my timing wrong.

This is awesome, Wendy. I have to confess that I totally misread it and thought it was a book cover or something. My apologies. (I gave you a 7 anyway, so I guess I still contributed to your score.)

Very well done. I like the processing and the eerie feeling. The “ghosts” set the mood. My choice for the blue.
