Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted


I had to think a little about what I had that might fit this challenge.  I finally decided on a photo I took while skiing at Beaver Creek Colorado.  I was “test driving” a  new camera and experimenting in blurring images with long exposures of action shots.  This was one of the shots that didn’t turn out like I wanted but I thought it was an interesting effect so I didn’t delete it – and here it is.  It is a photo of a skier shooting by me in the late afternoon……

He must be REALLLY fast...

    • I love it – hope you get to try it! You look like you’re in a much warmer climate – might be hard to find?

  8. i saw another blurred entry in this week’s challenge and i thought that it’s really great that blurred photos are sometimes more effective in telling the story a photo is supposed to tell. great photo 🙂
