Hello again, Savanah. Had her hold the cell phone to her ear, exposed with initial flash for 4 seconds. Flash (strobes) captured the detail and crisp focus, then 4 seconds allowed her to slowly move her arm (and the phone) down to her side while keeping rest of her body perfectly still. She\'s such a good sport. :)

This is really excellent. I agree with those that say this was scored far too low. It's not immediatly apparent that the blur is from bringing the phone up to her ear. I didn't even notice it at first. I think this would have done MUCH better if people had been able to see that the blur was from the phone.

Holy crap. Yeah I would say you were robbed. 5.0? Now I feel like an outcast giving out one of those lonely 9+ scores. That's got to be the highest score I've ever given to an image that finished this low. People just don't understand.

Heh, cute idea! The burning on her arm is a bit too much, and I would prefer to see the top on her head not cut off. Good clarity. The blur looks too touched up.

Nice idea. Doesn't quite come off, though.

Now that is an interesting idea and modern too. The only criticism I have is that most of the people I see with cell phones in NYC have them permantly cemented to their ears. No apparent motion there. ;-)

Is that blur actually caused by the phone? However you did it pretty slick. Great take to the challenge. I only wish she had the facial expression to match her rush to pickup the phone. Other than that it's perfect. 9!
