The idea was to focus on a object that was not moving while capturing the motion in the background. I took this on the day that Ike moved thru our area and the bushes were going crazy in the wind.

It almost looks like silky water. Great idea.

I can't believe this scored to poorly. It is very good and very well executed.

Interesting stormy effect by the long exposure. It makes the weather look very foggy and/or rainy. The stationary railing gives the feeling of safety on this side while there is danger on the other side.

Very different. I think this would look good framed in a hotel for some reason.

Nicely composed, but it's hard to read the background -- at least to the extent that it's recognized as something blowing around.

the wind in the trees in the background provide a nice eery feel but the background is just too blown

Interesting idea. I wonder if it would have been more effective at a different time of day when the sun wasn't so bright?
