Photo taken during a local parade. It was night time, and the energy levels of the parade participants are high, so I was shooting with flash at high shutter speeds. The results were clear, crisp shots, but they were flat.

I decided to experiment with my exposure and aperture and turned off the flash. This was one interesting shot that really captured the energy and movements of the parade participants.

This image was cropped from a bigger original.

Lots of joy in this picture. The blur and the mess improve this over a static in focus shot. 9

Lots of blurry, some messy. Not sure how I feel about this one. I'll try to revisit it later.

Great use of blur to show movement and energy. Yellow is a strong color theme to show connection with those in the parade.
