Congratulations on your new Personal Best! Somewhere there is a thread for posting such things - go post! I love that little flare of sun over her shoulder. The artificial blur is just a tad strong for my taste, but it worked to get your point across for this challenge, and that's what counts! Nice street work, too.
Thank you, all, and thanks Melethia for pointing out the thread!
I agree on the strength of the blur. It's only my second time using artificial blur in an image, and I didn't know how far to take it. I decided to lean on the artistic side, but now looking at it, I realized it's a bit much. In the future, maybe that knowledge will really help me out, haha.
