Theme Day - out of focus


This month's theme for the City Daily Photo community is out of focus.  For me having something out of focus needs to have a purpose.  In my contribution to the theme day, I have used a slower shutter speed to make the people blurry to give a sense of how frenetic and busy London's underground can be.  The stairwell remains sharp so it is obvious the movement is deliberate and not a mistake.  See how others have interpreted the brief here.

I like your interpretation as you need to demonstrate that the choice to be out of focus is deliberate and not just a mess up.

You can really see the movement. Very nice.

You've chosen well, Mo!

Nice. I was wondering what you would do. Your images are always nice and crisp, so having an intentionally blurred shot must have given you heartburn.

Love it! There is a 'Hopperesque' element to it as well. Frenetic, movement, and isolation. Perhaps it's the lady in red.
