Well, based on the thread for this challenge, everybody has their own ideas.... so I really just don't know. A challenge like this is unorthodox, so that means that I have a chance to score really well. I have a feeling I won't.... but that's okay. I ended up with some images for this challenge that I'm really proud of (I processed more than just this one). I had a very hard time choosing which to go with but chose this one because it was a) very blurry and chaotic and b) still had something in it the voters could recognize (the numbers). So we will see how it goes.

By the way, it is a picture of some dice. :-)

I thought this was excellent! Met the challenge very well on all counts and wasn't just blur for blur's sake but presented a cognizant and recognizable concept of the "blur" of the 9 to 5 workday. Nicely done!

Nicely done! I would have cropped off just a bit more of the bottom. Chaos rules!

not a fan of the huge white area, but very intriguing nonetheless.
