First of all, I'm a huge marble fan. I have shot marbles in many different ways, but not this way. I imagine you might get some comments not liking the motion blur. I love the way it shows motion in a still photo. I've seen prettier marble photos, but I love your concept and execution. 10 from me!

Very interesting shot, the colors and movement are great.

Nice motion shot. The marbles are interesting, and so are their "paths"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 08:13:36 PM
I can't articulate all the reasons why i like this but I do. I hope it's natural and that the motion blur was captured in camera rather than in software. If so, it's among best in class.

Nice sense of motion captured here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 03:15:31 PM
Interesting suggestion of motion and mixture of colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 01:20:31 PM
Back to comment and bump: I hope your photographer's comments explains how you did this (flash with rear shutter sync maybe?). Very artistic lookings and bumping to a 10. PS: Welcome to my favorites.

03/14/2009 01:05:29 PM
great concept, for me, either more movement or less jmo

Could symbolize the planets in our solar system.

Good motion blur.

You found my marbles! (OK, so I am probably not the first to say that and it's probably pretty old by now, sorry). I really like the motion captured in this shot. The fact that they appear to be floating is a little weird for me. I think I would like the texture of a marble game on asphalt paired with the smoothness of the marble and the motion. The contrast would be interesting.

I like this, I don't understand it other than it's some marbles. Sometimes you don't have to understand a shot to like it.

Interesting capture.

Nice shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:49:12 PM
Good pic. I like the idea of movement but it's a bit distracting coming from different angles.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 01:27:00 PM
Very effective motion blur
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 10:30:51 AM
They're not lost after all.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 09:03:49 PM
Good for you! I've lost mine. *grin*

I like how they're in the middle of nowhere!

Very nice :)

There's an amphibian trapped in that big one, and a fish in one of the smaller ones. How did you do that?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:30:27 PM
interesting image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:23:24 PM
Fun shot. The "hovering" marbles make it interesting, and the motion blur adds texture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:30:30 PM
Interesting action shot. I like that the movement is headed out of the screen.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:17:18 PM
Really like this shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 12:44:38 PM
Cool, not sure what's giving this is effect, are they being thrown thru the air?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 08:22:32 AM
A little different. Not liking the background color but its at least a little different then most.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 06:35:46 AM
Interesting photo, the marbles almost seem to be travelling in space. I like the colours and the negative space. Best of luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:50:07 AM
Interesting composition. I like the implied motion in the marbles. Unique shot and well captured.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 03:49:39 AM
Nice hint of motion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 02:50:42 AM
I would have liked to see more of the motion but it's nice nonetheless.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 01:42:44 AM
just wondering how you did that....great colors, excellent tones...
