I hate voting based on being too sharp because mine is too, but I am afraid I am forced to. Nice shot, but not for this challenge.

Great shot! I love it, but one gentle critique if I may? Tilting it just a little to the right and leaving the symmetry(sp?) works great!

Burry but not very messy. The tiles and symmetry are very... neat. Still a very nice image.

Great example of using blur as a technique to add emotion and drama to the photo. Maybe it is getting some dnmc, but certainly not from me...I love this blurry mess and the traditional photographic use of it.

Wonderful processing, interesting subject, lovely composition. My fav thus far.

I'd say it's a blur, though not much in the way of messy or chaotic. As far as the image itself goes, it's reasonably interesting. Nice contrasty b/w, though there is a tilt that needs to be corrected.

A good attempt, however I believe that the intentions of this challenge were to make the entire image blurry yet beautiful. Very good exposure, though you should recrop it to straighten it out.

a bit clean in overall effect for this challenge

Now this is exactly how I envisioned this challenge to be. Enough blur to be called blurry, but enough clear to see what the story is. Very well done. 10

The black and white in the image is striking, the ghostly figures are kind of too faint IMHO and I find the clock is the centre of my attention so I don't notice the blurred figures till much later. Maybe a higher angle and a closer shot of a disorganised desk would work a little better. It's a little too far away from blurriest, most chaotic and disorganized but is certainly engaging and interesting so half way there!

Great setting. The people ghosts and large clock combine very conceptually.
