The camera jitter effect actualy works well here, it adds a sense of havoc to the scene.

I'm ver interested in seeing how you got this picture.
06/15/2002 01:56:00 PM
too blurry to give proof this is a real accident
06/14/2002 10:59:00 PM
That's tragic! If this is a real accident, I hope no one was killed.... but I suspect it was pretty bad. The shaking of the camera creates a real feeling of fear and anxiety. Very effective.
06/14/2002 03:57:00 PM
I will wager a guess only. The car was stopped and the camera shook?
06/13/2002 07:31:00 PM
Yeesh! I hope no one was hurt!
06/13/2002 06:36:00 PM
I like how you've gotten a sense of motion and mood of tradgedy.
06/13/2002 05:24:00 PM
I think the blur makes me feel like the wreck is happening has I watch. It's creepy, but has a powerful effect. Hope no one was seriously hurt.

I find this kind of dark and grainy, but I really like the look of chaos that you captured here.
06/13/2002 12:52:00 AM
I don't think this shot needed to be defended in the forums, it is very cool. The motion blurs make it more real. Great job!
06/12/2002 11:08:00 PM
I like the feeling of chaos here.
06/12/2002 03:31:00 PM
This is on great shot, I feel like I am seeing the accident as it happens.
06/12/2002 02:35:00 PM
full macabra!!!
06/12/2002 09:44:00 AM
I like the use of motion!
06/12/2002 06:45:00 AM
Nice work! Your camera shake on this shot does an excellent job of conveying a sense of chaos in this shot. I think this is the first shot done this way I have seen in any of these challenges that works well... good job!
06/11/2002 09:32:00 PM
poor taste
06/11/2002 04:02:00 PM
This is either a fortunate grab shot of an unfortunate accident or the busiest paint with light picture I have ever seen, wow how did you do it?
06/10/2002 08:05:00 PM
Cool... the movement effect of the picture gives a very surreal feeling.
06/10/2002 05:36:00 PM
This is too cool, great job. Congrats.
06/10/2002 05:32:00 PM
Wow! Bet that hurt.
06/10/2002 04:39:00 PM
This is one of those photos that would have been improved with the use of a tripod. Camera shake is exaggerated when you are using a slow shutter speed.
06/10/2002 04:03:00 PM
Geez, I hope no one got hurt. Did you shake the camera for the blurry / light swirl effect? Not sure that works for me.
06/10/2002 03:25:00 PM
Is that for real? The unsteadiness of the camera is rightfully disconcerting.
06/10/2002 12:58:00 PM
wow, did you actually catch this happening this week?
06/10/2002 11:24:00 AM
Wow. normally i do not like things completely out of focus, but it just fits this one perfectly. I don't want to use the words lucky or cool, but your sure did happen upon an interesting events for the theme of this picture.
06/10/2002 05:29:00 AM
I love the chaos in this picture.
06/10/2002 03:42:00 AM
I like the idea of the "jarred camera motion" in this shot; it adds to the sense of motion, confusion, and "accident-ness"...
06/10/2002 02:02:00 AM
Great Shot! Hope you didn't crash your car intentionally for this photo. >,<
Very Powerful Picture, honestly.
