Instagram Challenge Showcase - Creative Blur

News must be getting out about the challenges I've been having on Instagram. The first was Face Collage and the most recent was Creative Blur. Blur adds a bit of movement a bit of mystery to an image and I'm happy to present some of the creative interpretations of the theme. The Instagram usernames are listed below each photo.

Brent Mosely, aka Sleekmaus, really tied in the zoom blur with the victorious stance of the figure in his creation below. The warm colors also add to the excitement of his piece.

Elaine, aka @sunflowerof21, used a very subtle blur but it adds a great mood to her photograph below and directs the viewer's eye to the boy's face.

Steve, @cooksbay, often includes a story to go along with his image (above). 
Alex fell in love with her on first sight .... but it did occur to him that she might be dressed more appropriately for a White House Ball than as a sunglasses salesperson at Atlanta Airport!

@nmbo1973 had a story to go along with her image above:
Finally after waiting an hour Isabella decided to make a run to her car hoping the paparazzi would leave her alone! She had no choice he wouldn't get out of her way as the flash nearly blinded her. She gave him a strong right hook to his face and his camera shattered into pieces.. Finally she was a free women and boy did it feel good!

For the next challenge, rather than a technique let's try an interpretation of a word - the first word is Solitary. Tag your mobile images with this theme #aom_solitary. Old and new images may be used. No limit to number of entries. This is just for fun - showcase will post on September 20th.

  2. What a great selection of images for the "Blur" theme! I wish I could have participated, but I was busy all last month rebuilding our business website which crashed and burned the beginning of August, essentially curtailing my photography pursuites. I'll definitely submit for the next one!

  4. Thanks, Geri - it took a month of working on it every day to rebuild it. Now it has a completely new, updated look and style, and a different branding focus, too. All that is left is to get some live videos recorded to post. If you like, check it out when you get a chance - www.paulandlayne.com
