' You stumble from the casino, pockets and head much the worse for wear, bow tie askew, cummerbund hidden by your shirt, when you look up and see this vision. Grace Kelly sweeps down the steps, pauses and smiles at you, and carries on. You are instantly better, blessed by this earthbound angel.

As beautiful as it is bizarre -- not unlike that moment in a dream where things suddenly turn surreal.

My eyes hurt looking at this image, probably just me but it looks like an optical illusion.

I dig how there was some thought put into the blurs of this. Very fine art. Nice shot.

I enjoy doing this myself; you discover things beyond normal perception. You do it very well. Thank you.

Can't wait to see the notes on this one! looks like a distorted reflection. How ever it was done the results speak for themselves. I think you have made my ex wife look stunning, thanks :) 10!

instead of camera movement this is camera shake...I like the effect that you achieved on this

This photo is freaking me out. The super skinny looking neck and big head is very alien like.

The blur is overdone and just not working.

Blurry, almost gives a dream like ambiance but it is so hard to see what is going on. I think it is taking away too much from your shot, thats just me though.

Interesting idea. This is not my taste, and im sure wont appeal to the masses. I think it takes some great artistic vision and guts to do this. Congrats.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: I really like blurry people pictures so this one was always going to push a button for me. I like this image, especially the neck and the 'Picasso-esque' relationship of the nose to the rest of the face.

Critical stuff: This is a bold image and I would've perhaps liked to have seen a slightly bolder treatment - a bit more contrast to make that back lighting stand out a little more (?)

Overall: Very nice though - a bit of a treat to find in a FS.

One of the best in the challenge. Amazingly strong blurred composition and the title is superb. 9.
