Challenge 173: OOF/Blur (hosted by Bruce Jones)

Welcome to Challenge 173.

Photography is usually all about focus. We take great pains to put our subject into proper focus. We worship at the altar of sharpness.

But once in a while -- usually by accident -- I have found creative possibilities arise when the subject is clearly out of focus.

And that is the challenge before us: Put your subject clearly out of focus. Creatively.

>>> STF CHALLENGE 173 Exhibition Theme: BLUR <<<

I realized -- after I picked the eligible theme -- that most of us don't have too many OOF keepers laying around. So the theme for the exhibition gallery is similar but different. Show us your pictures where the subject is clearly blurred. Motion blur, PP blur, camera shake, whatever.
Again, the blur should add something to your interpretation. Creatively.

-- Bruce
