I'm happy with this one and I hope it does better than I expect it will :P

So I knew that there would be those who wouldn't like the blur or lack of sharpness. I like this one because to me, it tells a story and is genuine. The blur is motion blur, as that's how we tend to see these migrant worker as we speed by.

I agree 100% with your comment on the blur. I think it makes a profound statement.

I love the foreground blur in this. As an occasional visitor to Pt Mugu, this image really reminded me of the view of the migrant workers from a moving car. Very well captured.

I'm in Santa Barbara next year and looking forward to photographing the beautiful pier and getting into the hills.

Don't really like the foreground blur in this pic, it almost looks like motion blur. Other than that nice pic.

Nice idea, the large blyred area in the front is a bit distracting though.
