I'm rarely impressed by blurred motion images except good pan shots, but I keep coming back to this image. It works very well here proving yet another exception to my arbitrary rules.

The motion is wonderful in this shot. It shows intensity, determination, and the will to succeed. Nice capture. Originally voted it a 7, now I must bump to an 8.

I wish I could still move that fast ... when I was in college we had a couple of tables available 24 hours a day, and used 'em ... ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 02:10:56 PM
Wow, this is a really neat shot, especially with the judge/ref so still.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 01:22:16 AM
Really cool motion blur.. I see that the referee hasnt moved at all... did he fall asleep? :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 11:40:38 PM
I love the blur - what a great way to take an OK image and turn it into something special. All of sudden, we are no longer looking at two players, but at the game itself, and maybe sports in general.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 10:21:57 PM
Nice use of blur for the action. I'm wondering if this would be better if exposure time had been slightly shorter... 7

Great action shot, love the contrast of the immobile referee 9

very cool shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 11:17:14 AM
Wonderfully thought and done! I wish it was color!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 02:46:41 AM
Fun! Made me smile!! Blur is superb.

Looks like the Flash playing the Flash.

03/15/2009 08:16:18 PM
Cool shot. Love the deliberate blur.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 04:57:27 PM
Great action shot with the blurred players and even some traces of the ball.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 03:51:53 PM
Terrific action capture. I really like the movement captured. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 02:03:34 PM
this interesting, I love that rather than try and stop the action you used it to accent the referee. toning works well also
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:16:56 PM
Back to comment and bump: Such a fun image to look at. Very creative and a wonderful action shot. 10

Very clever!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 10:18:31 AM
The movemnt is so cool, escpecially seeing that the ref/observer is so still.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 05:52:51 AM
This probably wont do as well as it deserves - great idea and very well exectued.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 05:20:00 AM

I appreciate the concept and the boldness here, unfortunately , it did not quite work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:32:38 AM
I like this for some reason, great composition and a real sense of movement from the athletes. Well done. 7.

Very nice, great action capture!

Nice action shot.

It was the greatest new sport on the planet, and everyone came to see. For genetic research had led to the creation of a new breed of man. A breed that gave the illusion that they were moving faster than the eye can see, and the world was enraptured by them.

They had created the BlurMan, and sport would never be the same.

03/13/2009 11:05:53 PM
ah guess it was a "fast" game...hmmm
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 08:06:14 PM
Very nicely captured. Shows great action and very nice to look at. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:28:33 PM
LOL! What a great representation of the frenzied action of a ping pong game. The utter stillness of the table and judge are excellent counterpoints. Great work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 11:06:42 AM
Oh man/woman, I like that a lot. how the judge is motionless and the players are blurred. very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 06:50:03 AM
Great use of motion blur.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:48:01 AM
This emphasises the speed of their motion wonderfully - especially as there isn't a hint of movement in the judge :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:43:43 AM
Perfect length of exposure. It's great how we can't identify the players as it makes us feel more part of their game
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 03:12:26 AM
An interesting action shot, but I wish it were a little more centered.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 12:12:40 AM
This is a great action photo. I love it when a photographer takes the artistic liberty to let the action manifest itself in the form of motion blur rather than stopped action. In this image, that decision creates a sense of the game more than a sense of the players.... excellent work :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 10:54:30 PM
I like that the feet are stationary.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 05:08:23 PM
I like the contrast between the light and dark areas.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 02:03:56 PM
I like how the judge didn't move while the players were blurred.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 02:02:12 PM
absolutely wonderful shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:58:42 PM

Very nice and unique "action" shot.

03/12/2009 11:03:32 AM
Interesting idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 09:50:59 AM
I really love this one. It really shows some nice action with the players while everything else seems to be frozen still.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 06:25:09 AM
Wow u realy captured the feel of movement here - love it - 9

03/12/2009 03:43:42 AM
interesting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 03:14:12 AM
The motion is good but the clarity and sharpness of everything else make this shot IMO.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:28:06 AM
Cool action shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:21:57 PM
I love how the players are moving like crazy but the official stayed perfectly still, great capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:56:12 PM
Nice action! I like the movement of the figures but the judge keeping still during the exposure. Creative aproach which works nicely!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:05:27 PM
Nice and sharp with good use of a slow shutter to create blur. A bit of dodging on the path of the ball might have made this stronger. Otherwise, they could be dancing. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:42:14 PM
i like this alot but might have liked to see it in color
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:09:25 PM
joola (rather than 15/15 ;) good capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 04:29:53 PM
Great action shot! It is almost strange because obviously the table doesn't move!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:35:10 PM
