Photo Challenge: Blur

This is a lethal combination: 135bhp in a car weighing just 740kg in the hands of my middle son, Matt. He spent too much of his upbringing in the company of a madman behind the wheel (:-)) to be trusted with such exotica. More relevant and nearer the truth, my bank balance would not stand the premiums if he were added to the insurance.

Consequently, in this image, both man and machine were stationary and the blur added retrospectively – a much cheaper, virtual solution:

Matt and Elise...

    Ha, make the incredible. (Inedible at well, I suppose…that darned autocorrect!)

      Many thanks Elisa (almost named after the car 🙂 ) Right on both counts – incredible and inedible 🙂

    Cool effect, Robin. He does look a bit too relaxed to be the architect of that blur. 🙂

    I really like the addition of the motion blur, it does add some needed movement to the picture. Nice work.
