It broke my heart to blur up a beautifully sharp image. My only worry is that I haven't blurred it up enough.

Post challenge:
I donít mind a low score (liar ;-)!! Well, I donít if I think (eventually) that itís fair. In this case it was.
Three things bothered me though.
Firstly, I beat Richard 21.gif Yanko last week to get into the finals of the Enzo Tourny. With my crap score I knew I would now definitely be in third place behind Tim 21.gif timfythetoo and Jason 21.gif DrAchoo.
I worried that if Richard was sitting on a +7 score this week he might have won! However, he assured me that his score was pretty low too. This cheered me up, but not a lot.
Secondly, I wanted to beat Tim and Jason ;-) No chance!!! Great going, you guys. Congrats.
Thirdly, this was my first week in the German Olympic Team and I came up with my worst score ever. Sorry, teammates!

Thanks for the comments. They were very helpful.
Here is the sharp version. 658971.jpg
Deb 21_F.gif Melethia hit the nail on the head. The blur just doesnít add to the photo.

Not sure this is enough of a blurry mess

Sweet! A different take on this challenge. Not the most blurry or chaotic thing here, but enough to make it work.

I really like your idea, but maybe not for this challenge.

good image that to me, seems right on the boundaries of the challenge parameters....

Well composed and executed but I'm not quite sure I see where blur adds to this. This is one where because of the granularity of sugar would probably be a better picture if crisp and clear.

This really only is slightly out of focus and doesn't meet the challenge. This would have worked much better without the spoon and with blurry sugar falling by itself (like if you had cropped a picture out of the bottom there).
