Walk in the Park
6 shots taken over about 3 min and combined, I am trying to show two sets of walkers and one dog crossing the frame from opposite directions, and frozen at different points of the journey but still keeping the feeling of movement, each shot is 0.3 sec at f22 ISO 100 with a polarizing filter.

Now Steve I can well appreciate the thinking and editing that has gone into the making of this shot, but I'm afraid for me it falls a the last hurdle. I certainly does fit with the title to a degree (more later) and certainly could be a single long exposure shot, but unfortunately there are too many one legged men for me, three in fact and one in the distance with none at all and seems suspended in space. A great idea that just hasn't materialised IMHO, sorry

I do agree with George, up to a point, that is the point when I don't agree with him I do feel the same, that maybe it hasn't worked as well as you perhaps hoped. However, I do feel that you have made an effort to produce something different, which is good. You have stepped away from your first thoughts, perhaps, and taken the trouble to look for something out of the ordinary and that is the point of these assignments, to make you think. Well done.
