Great shot with no sharpness, a hand ful of colours but still expresses so much. A real change from over sharp or HDR.

Well done.

This is a very good idea and it would interesting to see your camera settings especially shutter speed to see how you achieved this.

It looks to me as though you possibly did this hand held - and huge apologies if I've got that wrong - as a consequence the grass is as blurred as the runners, where ideally, I think, it shouldn't be. For this type of shot I think a tripod is necessary, so only the elements within the frame that are moving, have motion blur, and the elements that are relatively still will be sharper. I say relatively still as obviously the grass being trampled all over isn't going to be totally still.

However, that is only one method. There is also the possibility of panning for blurred background and some elements of sharpness amongst the runners. Or, of course the abstracty, arty method where anything goes Smile

Phew! Hopefully I've covered all bases here Smile

A great idea though which definitely caught my attention.

thanks for you comments - logistics meant i couldn't use a tripod
was only experimenting today - shot at 1/15 of sec other speeds were either too sharp or too blurred
