Excerpt from Joe's Garage
By Frank Zappa


JOE:
It wasn't very large
There was just enough room to cram the drums
In the corner over by the Dodge
It was a fifty-four
With a mashed up door
And cheesy little amp
With a sign on the front said
"Fender Champ"
And a second-hand guitar
It was a Stratocaster with a whammy bar

Lovely blurred era.

A blurry picture of a mess! I like this, especially the oversat quality to the colors. My only quibble is that I personally would prefer to see the shot rotated a bit counter clockwise to straighten the most dominant and noticeable line in the composition - the long cabinet. But then, maybe that would counteract the "messy" dynamic too much... Well, anyway, I think this is a good shot for this challenge, gave it a 9.

I don't like the processing on this one. The localized contrast is cranked rather high. Neat idea though.

This shot is exactly what I was hoping to see. Great post processing too.

Great processing. I really like the compositon and subtle blur.

Great tones and textures for a Blurry Mess. You've achieved HDR imagery depth while still meeting the challenge.

Nice artistic processing. Chaotic and blurry too.

I think this is a great photo. It certainly feels like a piece of art, and Im not sure I would do it any differently.

Some may see this as just blurry but the blur does add to the general disorganized feel of a garage. Though I will say your garage is far too organized... :-)
