I took this picture While I was downtown shooting my Street Photography Challenge Pic... I took it just for fun... had the umbrella out to keep the rain off my new Nikon 10.5mm Fisheye lens, and noticed that it was getting in my shot... but i actually kinda liked it, so I threw a flash on the camera with a Garry Fong to light up my hand and the umbrella, then fired away Hand Held... the pic was taken at 1/8 sec Handheld; that's what I love about Fisheye lenses... you can get really sharp pics at really slow shutter speeds... I didn't intend on entering this pic in the Motion Blur challenge... I just took it for fun, and decided that I might as well enter it... Now... here's the catch... In my own opinion, this pic only really looks good when it is edited under advanced editing rules... Here is how I would edit it IF this were advanced editing...
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/95000-99999/96614/120/734648.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/95000-99999/96614/120/734648.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
But, since I am stuck with Basic editing... this is the best I can do... i'm not expecting much... oh well =P

Interesting city scene. The hand and umbrella make this image interesting.

The umbrella and the fisheye work great together. A little saturated, some blow outs, but a great photo for this challenge.
