This is a bit of an experiment. I do not expect this to score well, and I am going to try very hard not to care during this week. Apart from a crop, levels adjustment and a tweak to the saturation, this is out of the camera. Taken with an extremely slow shutter speed combined with vertical movement. I'll be interested to see if people think it's been done in PS. It has not.

I could easily see this hanging on the wall in an art galary. It looks so much like an impressionists painting.

The subtle gradations of color are just gorgeous here.

I don't remember if I've picked this one before (for pick your favorite), but each time I've looked, it has really called to me. Which is saying quite a bit, because I'm not much of an abstract person. I truly gets more and more lovely each time I see it!

stunning work - a joy to view this almost abstract expressionist painting - you are the second very artful shot I have had to opportunity to view so far in the challenge.

I could definitely see this on my wall. It's actually pretty cool. The square crop was a good idea.

YUMMMMMMMM. Love the blur. Like a painting.

This is probably the best in this genre I ever saw around here. The strength of the impressionistic effect is perfect: very modern and abstract, yet it's immediately clear what the subject is. I would put it on my wall.
