Done by camera movement -- not photoshop.

I took this one last May but never "published" it. What do you think?

I like this effect, and I feel like it's really close to impressionistic, even though the motion is obvious. What I think makes it better is that the base of the vase doesn't display any of the motion blur. That seems to anchor it, or make it harder, while the blur on the flowers softens them, and that's good. The dark background is a negative, I think, but I'm sure the lack of light bouncing around contributed to the positive I mentioned above. Overall, probably above the 75th percentile, had it been in the recent Impressionism challenge, in my opinion.

i think it's interesting, but would be better with a little less movement (maybe only a quarter of what you have here, just a slight blur). i think the lighting and coloring a just right, and that you could use a little more room at the bottom. keep in mind, one of the key elements of impressionism was to portray a glimpse; that is what was behind the short, light strokes that left a quick impression, as opposed to a detailed study.
