Official Bimmerpost Photo Contest #105 "Blur"

Blur can be caused by subject movement, camera movement, zoom movement or even artful out of focus.

The more creative the better!!

SUBMISSION WILL CLOSE ON MONDAY August 22, 2016, so you have three weekends to think and execute. (You can submit from your archive).
RULES:

1. Any interpretation of the theme that falls within Bimmerpost.com rules is welcome.
2. You must be the person that took the photo. Previous photos are acceptable as long as you are the one that captured the image.
3. One submission per contest, and you cannot resubmit a photo that you've submitted before in a previous contest.
4. Images must be no larger than 1024 px in any direction. Links to larger images are allowed but you must have one that is under 1024 px for the poll.
5. All contestants must host their own pictures (which includes hosting them on Bimmerpost).
6. All images must have a title.
7. While post processing in Photoshop is allowed, adding or removing parts of the picture is not. In the event a photo is suspected to be "photo-chopped," the contestant will be asked to provide the original picture.

Sample of subject movement:

Sample of focus (this is "selective focus" but any OOF technique is allowed):

Everyone, please make sure you posted image complies with the contest guidelines for maximum size (1024p on the long side).

Also, if you're under the max, I'd suggest that you resize up to the max, to give you image the best chance to win.

Dave

Looks like just a bad masking job to me. I doubt the car was added to the background.

This will close tonight and I'll try to post the voting thread tomorrow morning.

I'd really recommend that everyone resize to 1024p on the long side. Some are under that and will be at a disadvantage when side-by-side with the others. I don't like resizing the prints of others, so if you're over and want to stay in the contest, then bring it down to the 1024p limit.

The rule is there to try to give everyone an equal chance.
