To much motion blur, indeed! Hear hear! (OK, I read it as a toast rather than a misspelling.) Lovely catch!

1st time seeing this, sat this one out & didn't vote..
a beautiful candid moment, and the B/W treatment is perfect...

you seem to forget that you are GOOD at what you do! Virtual scores mean jack!

Happy birthday, Bradley...

Overall this is up there with the best. For me I find the movement in the hands a bit distracting. Well taken and B&W is a good choice.

Nice use of slow shutter speed to show the motion blur. Combine that with the shallow DOF to blur the background and the focus of the shot lands right on the womans face where all the emotion lies! Excellent!

This leaves me wondering if it was a real reunion because she looks truly happy. Great image. Others may kill you for blurriness but the feeling conveys a lot.

That was a great 'Peaches and Herb' song. I do get the feeling of 'hugging' in your photo but the motion blur, to me, is almost too much. I think the black and white conversion works well overall for the photo.
