Holding the lens while rotating the camera body to zoom in on an Australian Christmas Bush (got the idea from 21.gif Yo_Spiff Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_915941.jpg )

Obvious motion blur but not obvious what the subject is and I believe this will be the popular undoing of this image. I pesonally believe I have nailed this challenge as the boring Christmas Bush with its little red flowers has been enhansed by motion blur in my opinion). I'm normally quite happy with my titles but I've struggled with this. I was trying to have the viewer drawn to the centre when taking the image hence the reference to a black hole. Many may not get that and punish me more for an obscure title.

Prediction? Iím hoping for high 5ís but I should feel satisfied if it finishes in the fives. More interested in the comments I'm hoping it may get (unless the score is very high - ha)

El efecto de movimiento le da una caracteristica abstracta a la foto. Muy buena.

nice idea, but the colors are a little flat. maybe if you'd pushed the black point just a hair more and pushed the hue/sat just a bit.
