from the blurgeois pedagogues thread:

another purpose of blur: it helps us to forget.

We forget who we are. We forget where we were going. We forget that we were looking at a photograph. We forget if ducks live in the air or in the water. We forget if water is blue or green. We forget that we can't see air. It's a pleasant sort of forgetting, like stepping off a porch into a rubber tambourine, wondering why rain goes up. Sometimes we don't want to drink the green tea, we want to swim in the green tea. Blur helps us do that.

This, for me, is one of those dreams that morphs into a nightmare, and this is the point of morphing. It's been pleasant until now, if not a little disjointed, with abrupt changes in place and lack of a true linear narrative, and then suddenly - BAM! Time to wake up . . .

Don't know why - but this is very moving to me. The motion... the colors... amazing.

I can't decide, in my mind I am seeing this poor thing getting absolutely drenched by a downpour, but I also see..

The Mothman in there. ;)

I didn't get to see the other title, so basing judgement only on 'her soul', I like it. :)

No, this isn't ugly! This is dramatic and interesting. With very striking color tones.

I see nothing ugly here...what a beautiful concept shot.

Quite beautiful. There's little to critique for me because I can find little that doesn't strike me about this as right on. I love the bit of dirt near the top of the frame, and the dizzy motion is really great. I guess I'll break from everyone else and wonder what it would have looked like without the cross-processed feel, perhaps in a deep contrast black and white... but this is really lovely.

Great shot, full of rushing, there seems to be movement in so many planes here, almost in defiance of geometry, I could see this huge on a billboard, but I find the title distracting, i don't like to be led that much, this one cries out for 'untitled'.

Sh*t. This is really interesting. I like that I have to study it. You nailed the title.

Great title as well, Lesley :-) I'm not sure "ugly" is the word we want, but "determinedly non-aesthetic" would work :-) There's story-telling at work here, and that's why this works.

Acid and blur work so well together, don't they?!
I really like the effects achieved with the lens baby. I must purchase one of these : )

this has a very serene beauty.

Don't go into the light! :D The suggestion of motion here and the light rays effect give this shot a sense of momentousness that wouldn't be there if it were a pin-sharp stopped-motion capture.

very cool. has a bit of a good and evil feel to me with the white bird and the black bird(shadow i assume)..very nice.

This is just beautiful. I love the colour and the movement. Well done.

Your bird here has soul.

Looks like she managed to scatter it all over after she ditched her egg too!

Methinks you're channeling xion in this one. Now if you're gonna play your own game, you gotta add info! Lensbaby - OK. Now beyond that - settings? Post? (I suspect cross processing, yes?) Has a glorious sense of being on the fringes of freedom.
