Too soon for the camera movement challenge. Didn't have time to shoot for that challenge, so decided to use this one for the FS.

Processing open in Camera raw, Nik Color Efex Indian Summer filter. Resize SFW.

The effect is 100% in camera

I think this probably would have scored better in the camera movement challenge. It was a pity I had taken it a couple of weeks before that was announced. It was probably too close to that challenge to score well in the FS. Still 15 comments and 1 fave can't be all bad. Clearly a lot of people hated it though.

You really got that camera movement right. I've been trying to achieve such effect for some time now and your image might just have provided the element that was missing from my attempts. Something in the front that can anchor the movement. like your front tree. I really like it Sarah.

Just remember that there are all levels of folks here, including newbies who think everything must be crisp, clean, rule of thirds, etc. They'll come along - give 'em time. And there are those who will never like this kind of thing. Their loss. Just keep doing what you do. A commenter average of 8.2 with 15 comments in a FS is freakin' amazing.

This is very impressionistic! I'm guessing this came out of the camera movement challenge!

I like this, it's got great colours and depth. I wouldn't hang it in my house, but I could definitely see something like this in an office reception or something like that!

This is a lovely scene, and a technique that I've long wanted to try. I hope that it gets some recognition, and not just bad first-impression votes.

Very cool blur! Seems like a menacing army marching towards me.

I like the abstract effect! It really resembles a paint with brushes marks at the bottom. The lighting is perfect! Good job - you are up for the Posthumous ribbon, at least.
