Thanks for voting yesterday, and a big thank you to Peter ( handlerstudio ) for his UA.
Your title is spot on....a great LE, love the movement...
Something different! I like the movement as well.
Great image.. At my age I don't do speed. Peter.
I have an intense dislike of images which combine colour with black and white but this is the first exception I've seen. Alan, I love it. Apart from the overall look of the piece I also like small details such as the different shoes. I admire the variety in your portfolio and your need to explore.
Rather different, Alan. Somewhat surreal with the different feet, nice image.
Having both enjoyed and tried selective colouring in the past my position on it is now akin to Linda's. Like her, I find this a very different kettle of fish to the usual; she has gone into the matter sufficiently just above for me not to repeat it. At the very least you have illustrated once and for all that people can pass in the street in a blur of colour
Beam me up Scottie!
I'm not a fan of selective colour unless it actually says something new that straight colour or straight b&w wouldn't. This does.
And it is very difficult to achieve with motion blur. Technically the processing is very well controlled here. It's really just that sapling that is out of kilter, I'm not sure what I would do with it except that I'd like to get rid at least of the yellow/green patch in the trunk.

Your wish is my command. Just don't get used to it.
V2 uploaded, not 100% perfect, but better.
I'm all in a whirl!!!
nice n different
An image which for me although the concept is good I feel doesn't quite hit the mark. If the image were captured against a black back drop in a studio then I feel it would have more oomph.. "Sorry Alan"
There's a feeling of the transition in this which I hope was what you were trying for Alan.
Is he just arriving here or just going, whichever he's doing it at great speed.
An other avenue explored and ever interesting how it's received by the site.

But, dear Nathan, if it were "captured against a black backdrop in a studio," as you suggest, then it would be a completely different concept.
You may notice from the legs and shoes that there are actually two people walking together. Their blurred motion ( indicating they are alive ) is contrasted with the static mannequins in the window display which they perhaps don't have time to look at and which, because they are static, are not alive. Hence the title.
P.S. That's also why the people are in colour and the mannequins aren't.
Love it - and v2 is an improvement. Whether I'd have picked up on that yellow without Moira pointing it out, I don't know....
Interesting, clever and quite attractive. Nice one matey
