Zoom Blur

By jimthistle73  
Uploaded in response to the thread 'Focus Schmocus'. Barely touched this in PS - just resized and given a curves tweak.

Shot using a 10-20mm with an 8x ND filter. Flash head on an SB-800 zoomed to 105mm on rear synch mode (thanks James for this technique) to give a snoot like effect.

Zoomed during exposure.
