Challenge: Blurry Mess (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Date: Mar 11, 2008
Aperture: f22
ISO: 100
Shutter: 4s
Date Uploaded: Mar 11, 2008

This is a disco mirror ball with sparklers blu-tacked on top top and bottom. There's a piece of fishing line holding it up, and it's balanced underneath my printer - and then spun :)

Got some wicked outtakes but they weren't blurry enough.

Post Challenge: Scraped a 6...I agree it's too sharp...but it needed some mess about it in addition to the blur of the sphere.

Changing my mind and my comment. I'll vote on this after all. I don't think it meets the theme as well as some, but I really like it.

It looks like this is a photo that was a lot of fun to make. Don't you wish they were all that way?

Yikes; looks dangerous! Chaotic but not disorganized and not very blurry to my eye. But a fun image, nonetheless.

VERY chaotic! Nice energy and flow. Not especially blurry, though.

It's a wonderful, exciting image... but it appears to be in focus... and not 'blurry' as the Challenge called for. Sorry. I really like it. *sigh*

[edit]"the blurriest, most chaotic and disorganized image" is what the challenge instructed. Yours seems very organized... and the light 'sparks' are so in focus that it doesn't seem to be 'the blurriest' image. You nailed the 'chaotic', though. Perhaps if your focus was just a bit more 'off' (I can't believe I'm saying this! *Grin* ) then this would have met the topic better.

Really cool picture, although maybe if you toned down the focus a lot it would be blurrier
