This was my pick for a ribbon. You came pretty darn close. Good job on this one Robert. I gave it an infrequent 10.

This got a lot better the more I looked at it. Very interesting shot.

I love how the eye is drawn in a sweeping motion across the shot. What better picture to show motion than one that makes you move. I would like to stand in front of this pic blown up to about 6ft across for a while. Great job. 9

From the thumbnail, I didnt think I would like this shot, but now that I see it full size, I really like the textures created by all the lines. No clue what this is, so its really nice an abstract. Great shot.

A nine for use of color, but the image doesn't quite build up the tension one would expect for objects in motion - it's meaningless in that sense - you can tell it motion, but what motion?

Oh, this is amazing. An eclectic range of textures and some fantastic colors in the background, then SLAM, hit with that chaos on the right. Simply beautiful.

This is my very favorite in this challenge. Light streaks without having the light dominating the whole photo - instead, there's a lovely background. The light streaks also look natural and flow together nicely. Colors and contrast is great as well. Looking at the image, I aspire to have my motion-type shots display this level of technical ability, and I also see that it has a lot of emotion, which I personally find important in abstract images. Great job.

Nicely done

I like how you used the blur affect to show different speed of
movement
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2009 10:55:29 PM
The background effect alone is very interesting but the added splash of colored lines adds nicely.

Wonderful colors! Reminds me of a small organism as it swims through it's carefree environment.
