If you're going to irritate the voters, what better way than with blur, blown, and an annoying border? The killer B's! So here you go.

I could have entered a shot from the Disney Concert Hall - always a crowd pleaser, or another of my cloudy day shots - I had a great time shooting those and enjoy quite a few of them. But you get this, which was shot when taking my Mom to LAX to pick up a bus back home after visiting for Thanksgiving.

I never did see this, but I love it! Soon, I want to start experimenting with blur. I especially love people blurred with their environment - exactly what you've done here. I have been so focused on trying to get my technicals down for sharp, clear pictures that that's all I've thought about.

Came back to add...I really loved the processing on this. The tone and muted shades are fabulous.

I hope I don't look like that when I'm traveling. They do look bedraggled. Terrific use of motion blur.

One of my top votes, so I am dissapointed where it finished. Still a great shot.

I wondered if this may be yours but then I wondered if the Disney shot was yours.

Oh so this was yours! I thought it was cool. I wish I had seen this before I went travelling. I would have liked to take a shot like this.

They look like they're coming back from a journey to the Great Beyond. Bearing gifts. Terrific motion blur,

This is such a fantastic shot with great feeling and lovely colours. The boarder for me isnít working (perhaps the extra white or something) but the image is too enthralling to let that affect my vote. Well done!
