Not to much to this. Took the picture, adjusted exposure etc. Blur and smudge on the wheel. Thats it.

Clever use of the blur and smudge. I wondered how you did this. I learned something here.

I can't wait to find out how you accomplished this shot (assuming you did not lose a limb!)

What I can't figure is how it looks like the wheel is moving but no other part of the train is. Interesting perspective, though!

He he, I like the title. Cool use of blurred motion (through photoshop I assume, since no equipment was harmed?) Good creativity in post processing

Very interesting POV here :-) Definitely not an angle I've ever seen.

Holy cabooses!!! This is actually kind of scary! I can actually see the heat dissipation from the wheel bending the air around it like a hot desert mirage, at least I think that's what it is. Glad to hear the camera made it through, and you obviously did as well. Maybe you should stick to less dangerous subjects for a while, like flowers and butterflies. :-) This is one VERY interesting perspective in this challenge, and I've been staring at it in disbelief on how you did this.

the focus is oddly placed - the viewers attention is on the center because of the movement but the focus there on the left
the idea is good though, very good

I THINK THIS IS AN AWESOME PICTURE. I TOOK ONE SOME WHAT LIKE THIS WHEN THE TRAIN WAS MOVING SLOW. MOST TYPICALLY YOU SEE PICTURES OF THE FRONT OF THE TRAIN, OR A LONG VERSION OF THE TRACKS. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

I like the angle of the shot and the focus. The blurred track really conveys a sense of movement.

Funny how only one spot appears to be in motion. Hmmm...

Hmm...it is obvious the train is not moving. The blur looks applied and can be seen in areas next to the wheel that shouldn't be blurry even if the train was actually moving. Also the rail is blurry which again, even if the train were moving, the rail isn't and shouldn't be blurry.
