Wow, this is really good! Love these kinds of shots, and this one is particularily good. 33rd place? Man, sometimes voters are a pretty strange crew.

Underrated i'm afraid!

That is pretty cool. I bet if something in the shot (a ball perhaps?) was visible and was somewhat in focus it would have scored much higher. The colors in it is probably what scored it over 6. Regardless, it's a great looking abstract.

I'm glad you stuck with your choice, despite those low voters. This is still an excellent image.

I love the color on this one. I think it would work better perfectly centered.

These motions really capture the spirit of the challenge, and I know that you will ribbon. I like the stationary number and reflective surfaces.

There's a good concept in here, trying to get out. I don't think this really carries it off, though. There's just too much movement.

Maybe having the subjects hold a tableau for the first part of the exposure; then move, but leave their feet in place. There are lots of things you could try - there's a great photo in there somewhere!

there is so much motion, but yet, two people still look clear enough and the colours in the image look great.

Bit messy, if you ask me. Motion is evident allright, but the story in the shot gets almost totally obstructed by this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice idea, but without a clear, sharp background to set the action against, it all kind of blurs together.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

excellent...hope this ribbons as it is so unusual and good......hope this does well for you

wow, thats alot of motion!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm not sure how you did this, getting such crisp lines with all that movement - but it looks pretty cool!

I do like this rich, colourful, full-of-action image. It has a painterly aspect. The yellow and blue are excellent! 9.

LOVE THIS. What makes it realy jump out are the complementary colors. This is soft and blurred, yet you can see exactly what's going on. I like the white of the stripes on the black shoes (Adidas?)Very well done. My fav so far. 9
