This challenge was tough. I settled on an interpretation of my inner struggle, being chained to the office, even when I'm out trying to enjoy my ocean side lifestyle.

This is exactly what I would like to do with my phone (which represents all those things that tie me to civilization!) sometimes. The lack of sharp focus, the presence of "grain" and the overall "imperfection" of this shot make it all the more poignant and real, to me.

I love it. Good concept.

I think this is an example all those that travel on the same train as me should follow. Could be used as a campaign poster. Nicely framed, not sure the out of focus foreground / background works though? Good interpretation.

Would have been a great shot if it was in focus

I hope that was waterproof or already a dead phone!

little more contrast would help, i like the motion blur, and the composition.

Wow! I love how you captured the wave... very creative. You can even see the texture of the sand! And the bubbles of the water :)
