I enhanced the blur effect by using an off-camera flash to highlight parts of the characters and then doing a diffuse glow (0 4 16) on the whole image, inverted it, diffused glow again, faded it down to about 20% and then inverted it back. f/4.5 seemed to be the setting to get the look. I was about 3.5 meters away which enabled me get a good spot focus on the "face" of the turned subject and have the rest a tad bit fuzzy.

One of my high scores in this challenge - you really did manage to capture the essence of the scene you created!

A nice slyly funny shot, especially like the composition with some Woodies partway out of the frame, to give a sense of a scene beyond the borders. Soft glow works really well, here, too.

Good use of motion blur. How did you manage it on a static item like this?
