What a fun shot! :) Very neat concept. All looks great except the back wheel which looks static.

LOL!

Not a lot of speed-blurring going on though, eh?

I guess a helmet to accomodate eyestalks can be kinda expensive ...

Very funny! ( kinda wish the back wheel were spinning like the front one )

Yikes!

Wow... I'm confused with this picture!
What's the motorcycle resting on? It looks like it's floating in air.
A snail?!
The background is blurred, but I think it's just out of focus.
There's some blur in the front wheel, because it's spinning, but the back wheel isn't.
Is this bike moving or not?

It's a cute idea -- I like the idea. Perhaps if you'd managed to get both wheels spinning and get a little motion in the background this would have been a more clever shot.

06/28/2006 02:26:23 PM
I just don't see the motion in this, except maybe the front wheel, but that is hard to tell.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/28/2006 11:03:48 AM
Haha! We're you the one asking about how to get a snail to come out of its shell? Well, if you are, looks like you got it.

Bonus point for making me laugh!

oh my gosh, that so funny! well done!

Funny photo. - 6

funny and well done 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.

funny! cropping so we don't see the bottom of the tires might strengthen the illusion - well, and a spinning back tire! As I think about shooting something like this - I think I'd need two or three assistants and a snail wrangler! So I appreciate how difficult this shot was to get - but just a little more work and it would be a contender! 6

very creative! LOL ... I love it!

This is hilarious!

06/26/2006 11:06:36 PM
that's a lot of fun and you must have gone through a lot of troupble so A+ for effort...well done, I hope this shot does really well for you
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2006 06:18:48 PM
Well it took me a moment to realize the background blur wasn't what you were trying to show as motion but rather the front wheel in motion. Doh! This is such a strange photo that I have to give this a 7!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2006 02:15:49 PM
Looks like you got that snail to come out after all - eh? ;^)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2006 02:09:55 PM
WOOHOO!!! 10 FOR SURE! the only critique would be to have the back wheel spinning also.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2006 10:08:20 AM
hahaha awesome idea!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2006 10:07:42 AM
A very cute concept, although it doesn't seem to meet the challenge. The blur doesn't appear to be from motion, but from depth of field :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

poor little bugger! this is very sweet in a sick and funny kind of way, though the illusion is somewhat shattered by the fact that only one wheel is spinning (the front, oddly) and it all looks like it's suspended in air. if you cropped the shot 1mm above the bottom edge of the tyres (and spun the back wheel) i think it would probably be a top 5 contender. 6.

I hope this doesn't win. This seriously doesn't do anything for me, obviously a really setup shot, the wheels aren't touching the ground, the back wheel isn't spinning...this was a great idea, but executed very poorly in my opinion.

Go S Car, Go! :) Very creative and cute.
