Very happy to get the blue on this one, although it's bittersweet since we didn't advance.

Big congrats to In The Works for advancing! This DPL has been a lot of fun, and it was great to get to work with the amazingly talented photographers on my team for the past 2 months. Go Hit Squad!

To shoot this, I borrowed a shopping cart from one of the several markets that are within walking distance of my building, then I took it to my parking garage, strapped my tripod sideways to the back of the cart, and took 5-second exposures while spinning the cart in a circle.

I tried lots of different ways to make my background streaky while keeping the cart sharp, and the spinning way by far the most effective.

Thanks for the great votes and comments!

I was on the road for 3 weeks, so I didn't get to play as much as I wanted. I only had a phone on which to view images and one night at a gas station to upload my cart. So I'm really late commenting.

What a great shot!! I was so curious to see what this would look like on a large screen. It didn't suffer in translation. Awesome on a phone, and awesome on the screen! Congrats on the blue. And you guys were a scary team to go against. What talent!

This is the blue I'm quite sure.
Very clever perspective, dynamic and uncluttered at the same time, just great
