2.68 - "Solid" 

Abstract woodland shot. Created by using slow shutter and quickly moving camera downwards while exposing.

Out of the few similar typed shots in this week's theme, this one is my favorite. Seems a great balance of abstractness vs. the little catches of detail that leave a sort of 'grainy' look resembling wood-like structure. Nice.

i am not sure what i am looking at, but i consider it a work of art. the idea of the slow shutter and the movement is absolutely gorgeous. but it all condenses down towards colors and for this i must say it lacks a bit of it. a further color element would be needed to make that a real hammer. i give it 4 stars.

Thanks. It took a few tries to get the right movement and timing. It was a dark foreground and brilliant back light that helped.

Lovely shot. Really well done.

Thank you. Looking at a large print (13*19) it almost looks like double exposure. You can see a solid background behind the blurred foreground.

For some reason I really like this 5*

Much appreciated. Ideally I would have liked the right and left ends to match more rather dark on the left and light on the right, but that's what I had to work with where the backlight was beaming through.
