I have no idea how I missed this one! The colors are great with such a fun subject :) Love the emotion that speaks without saying a thing.

Those pink skates are so fun and really pop, and the fact that they are not in focus really gives me the sense that she is skating FAST!

So vibrant...this just screams childhood fun! It's too bad that DPC in general couldn't see eye to eye with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' ubique's comments on the focus!

I like ubique's take on this - focusing off-action gives the whole shot a different impact. It's just "not normal", so instead of relying on pat responses to expected aesthetics we have to dig deeper in ourselves, find the wonder, and put words to it. The exercise in itself can be exhilarating.

Yup, Paul has it spot on, if the skates had been in focus this would have been a great shot but the off focus makes it even better. Fess up Lisa, was it intentional?

Those are some sweet skates! I had those crappy metal ones that clipped onto my sneakers...or sandals if I was feeling reckless...but all so much fun none the less. The pink and aqua colors lend a great retro vibe.

She looks like she's floating on a cloud.

More agreement with Ubique, the in focus payment makes you contemplate the landing of the roller skates, very cool. Love the colors as well!

These colors rock! and what a great comment by ubique! I wouldn't have thought it, but couldn't agree more.

Great shot! Really has a feeling of flow/action.

I like that she's floating. :-) And what Paul said.

This is a really cool, dynamic shot. Love the colors!

I'm noticing a pink trend in some of the groups pictures. This has a nice action feel to it.

Love the subject, something I still do regularly...rollerskate!

This is one of the hardest things to do (or at least do well) with Lensbaby ... to put the sweet spot in the 'wrong' place and have it work so beautifully. The effect of deliberately focusing off-action like this is something I really enjoy; it somehow adds a whole new dimension of movement and meaning, when your eyes keep flicking down to that little cluster of wee pits in the concrete, and then back to the action, and then back to the concrete. Who'd have thought that such inconsequential details could drive the viewers attention so well?
