I like that even though the picture is blurred, it is purposely done so. The photographer moved the camera either up or down quickly when he/she took the picture. You can still tell that it is a picture of a city's skyline. The black and white also dramatized how blurry the picture really is. I think the effect works pretty well.
It’s incredibly energizing to be in a big city, surrounded by crowds of people, flashing lights, and cars zipping past. It’s a complete sensory overload! Things move quickly, though, and sometimes it can seem like you are caught in a big blur of commotion. In these Cityscapes, photographer Stephanie Jung has developed a way to prolong a single moment of this chaotic excitement, particularly along the streets of Japan.
Should call this one, ‘Ghosts’. One of a series of blurred experiments with people rushing through turnstyles. I was trying to get the shutter speed at exactly the right point to blur, but still have recognizable faces. It’s also interesting to me to notice how feet are rendered. The foot which is planted to move is not blurred, while the foot which is moving is.
