Thanks again for the great comments and votes.

Since someone asked: I used a slow shutter speed while the model spun in the doorway. At the same time I twisted the zoom ring for that zoom-blur.

This is wild. Love it. I feel like I'm meeting my wife for the first time.

I thank you with a Sterling Sturgeon

This reminds me of the painter Frances Bacon maybe more than Ben but I'm giving it a 7 for its special soul bearing sentiment even if not intended.

Such a rush of energy but still quite delicate. Beautiful photo.

Very cool! Like a butterfly coming out of a cocoon.

I am not usually one for the zoom blur, but in this image I think it works quite well. Great color tone and textures.

These zoom captures make me so queasy. But this certainly shows that "inner light" I love so much in Ben's work.

Great use of blur. Drives me right to the subject. I can feel this photo if that makes sense.

In most of the images in this challenge, the blur comes across as being gimmicky. Here, the blur is ESSENTIAL. Wonderful storytelling! My favorite in the challenge. 10 =)

Makes me think 21.gif clive_patric_nolan, couldn't say why. I like it a lot. Not fantastically Bennish but there are accents. Great as a standalone image. Gets a 9 from me.

Surely catching my attention. there is a charming awkwardness that is very endearing. Perhaps sepia makes it too sweet though. Ben"s? I doubt it though.

Haunting. Damn near terrifying. There's something telling about that white dress against all that Spurgeon Sepia.

Wow, truly a work of art. Lots of emotion in this one.
