Greetings from the CC!

Artistic: Interesting capture though I never would have guessed it to be a cyclist, due to the darkness and amount of blur. His back being to the camera makes it difficult to really say anything. Not being able to see his face means we don't know if he's tired, jubilant, bored, sad, misrable etc.

Technical: The b/w seems to bring out a lot of noise - going up to 1600 ISO may have helped. Comp centred and a little dull.

Feel free to PM me

I thought this was your work, but ran out of time before I could vote/comment. Too darn bad, because I loved it. My procrastination was your loss. Funny how most of my favorites end up no better than the bottom half, to hell with scores.

Like the last thing remembered. Before the ball drops. Or the lights go out. Or total inebriation mercifully sets in. And the year ends.

A ten for you.

This is just too good! I feel I'm looking at a lovely charcoal drawing thatís been perfectly smudged.

Love the title too. Ties it in nicely to the challenge.

Shots like this don't tend to score well here on DPC (unfortunately), but I like it. It has a ghostly quality that is interesting.

It took a couple of seconds to see it. But indeed, a dance it is. I really like the way this was done. Beautiful ephemeral quality to this one. 10!
