Oh no. You've done it again. I better get something entered. I'd hate to slip behind on the race for the brown.

Another really great image. Beautiful light. And, by the way, it is clear what doesn't belong. It's just hard to tell if that is a bottle of sunflower kernels or a bottle of mixed nuts. That's probably what threw everyone off.

No, you putz.


Well, I wouldn't go that far, maybe a very nice putz! She is a wonderful person who usually doesn't like blur so I don't hold it against her, at least not often! I will say that this style of imagery is best appreciated by those who also create similar images. There is a difficulty, and delicacy, to these images that is often under appreciated. Although it comes natural to the lucky few, it is mostly an acquired taste.


I thought it was a term of endearment. A sort of gentle gibe, not too harsh. It is where I come from.

ETA I looked it up. It has a meaning I never intended, so I apologise & withdraw it.

You did well to maintain the shapes of your objects, not an easy task to achieve with blur. You have learned, or have always known, how to control and place your light with this style of image; same can be said about the tones. An object oriented image in which the black object doesn't belong. Ha! That must be the kernels. If you are at three packs of smokes, they won't be going anywhere soon! ;) <stop smoking, hard to quit my day job>

Welcome relief from the parlor games and puns that otherwise make up this challenge. And quite profound on its own.

Great that you can tell what doesn't belong without knowing what the things are.

Is that a cat, sitting where it shouldn't? I love how this makes you want to invent a story.
