This is too blurry to be considered stopped motion. It's almost painful to my eyes and the use of black and white make it flat.

Nice dream sequence image.

I'm not sure what it is, but something about this really grabs my attention and makes me feel really good.

I like the post-processing with the B/W and the glow effect. It feels a bit underexposed on lighting. You've done a good job stopping the motion catching her mid-stride and the hair blowing back. Her shadow adds interest (you picked a good time of day for dramatic lighting). Best of luck to you.

awesome image, and killer processing...but, unfortunately, taken too far for this specific challenge. while i absolutely love this shot (just wish it wasn't so tight on the right), i think the blur is going to hold it back score-wise. hopefully, i'll be wrong about this.

A nice picture, but something weird is going on with the PP. I like the softness, but don't like the double edge above the treeline and around the model's body.

I think this is too dark, the shadow areas all blend in together and there is no detail.

Far too much post processing for my taste. Otherwise a nice dramatic, well composed photo that meets the challenge.

Great capture and title. I feel the processing makes it appear to have more motion blur than it actually does. A little more room on the right would also help.

This is such a freeing image, I really love it. The model looks like she's comfortable and the the wardrobe choise was excellent. I also love the soft diffused light (Smart Blur?)

this fits the challenge nicely, and it's nicely composed. i do feel that the contrast and diffuse glow is a tad excessive (the trees seem too oppressively dark and the glow has left an off putting halo around the girls arms and head). but i like it muchly; the style is happy and carefree, which is somehow enhanced by floaty skirt and the lack of shoes (nice touch!). it's a warm feeling shot... i like the greyscale, i do, but i'd like to know how it looks in colour... 8.

Good composition and I like the study in b/w. IMHO you went a little too far with the neat image / gaussian blur and sharpening.
