I shot this on a nice walk with my family. Naturally, I fell behind as I kept shooting up into the trees. I wasn't quite sure what I was looking for, but I knew that I felt at home in the forest and wanted to capture that feeling.

Then I stopped under this one very mossy tree and shot straight up. Kind of boring. "Hmmm. Wonder what it'd look like if I zoomed while the shutter was open."

Thanks for the comments. I knew this wouldn't score high (it's actually a good 0.5 higher than I expected!), but it looks like I connected with some folks, which was my goal.

lovely mix of blues and greens. I find myself thinking of yoga or deep breathing, so I think the narrative is effective, despite its abstractness. this is a zoom blur, right?

wow this photo seems to move, just like an optical illusion.
