Challenge: Abstract With People (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2012 Challenge shots
Date: May 3, 2012

About 5 hours left, and I'm at 6.5. Extremely pleased and surprised. I thought it was fun, but didn't expect this.

This was my other choice:

I actually really like the flow of the outtake, but I wasn't sure it was abstract enough. And I did like the two.

It was taken at Wren hall on the campus of William and Mary. I didn't have anyone with me, so I had to wait for people to come by. I only had twenty minutes on the meter, and only had about 10 people go through, so I was pleased that I was able to get two shots.

The shot was done by using a longer shutter speed, and moving the camera up and down during that time. It really elongated the arches, and did interesting things to the people walking through. It was difficult to time it right, however, with the longer shutter speed. That was the challenge. :)

Thanks for the wonderful comments and votes! (hope it holds. :)
