FYI - for all you speed voters, this is not DNMC lol.

Not a "trip the lights fantastic" shot that will probably be expected for this challenge. I actually found it hard to show movement with light - my pics sucked. So I took this photo at dusk. It's a flowering bush - no clue what they are. I used a flash light and a blue light of some kind to highlight the flowers. So those lights were moving - you just see the end result. (These are white flowers, by the way.)

So it's going in because I liked how the colors turned out!

Score predict: hopefully above my double take pic

Gentle and beautiful. Love those shades of blue. It takes a strong woman to enter a subtle image ;-)

Hooooo Michelle, you really did take a risk with this one and I bet at least half those 4's, and all of the 3's are people who speed vote and did not get the subtlty of what you want

I think this is a really beautiful image, wonderful focus and a very clever effect

Top job

Nice subtle light, great blue but it has mede the leaf below it a bit of an odd green. Good Luck

Love the blue tones here. I find the back branch a bit distracting but without it a definite change in composition would be in order to account for the negative space. This may have looked nice with a square crop.
