We want to see shots of waterfalls taken with slow shutter speeds, portraits with out of focus backgrounds, cars with backgrounds blurred to create a sense of speed and any other shots where you've used blur creatively .

If you're new to Photo Month you can find out more about it in the what is Photo Month forum .

I use Blurr for Landscape effects like this one, also sea effect, capturing vehicle motion, peoples motion like sports or running to give a sense of speed.
I also use blur to get rid of unwanted backgrounds in portraits and such like.

1/2sec exposure with 28mm lens (35mm equivalent).
I was sitting on a seat and just rested the camera between my legs and waited until a few people were walking past

Taken at Lumiere Light Show in Durham City, whilst pushing my way through the crowds.
The lady in this shot was pushing a child in a buggy, it should be in the centre of the image though the camera seems to have made it disappear.
Very interesting shots were taken that night

It matters not what lens you use,its the time lapse of the shutter that makes the picture, which depends on the speed of the subjects movement.

Allowed the runner to blur a bit here rather than select a fast shutter speed or pan the shot.
