Arriving from Paris to Pessac, my camera was ready to fire, but no time to adjust the settings (I had taken pictures in the tube in Paris with the shutter at 1/6s!), but I am pleased by the result, giving IMHO the sense of bad weather and motion of the person who does not want to miss the train.

Love this fantastic ghost like motion of this commuter still with her umbrella up. Some of these shots happen by chance, a rushing settings or not, but when we view them after we are pleased with the result.
Love it, keep it up, we will bond together the creative ones, All the best, Iain.

Salut Claude. Evocative and creative result. J'aime le titre aussi. Bravo. Klaudio.

bonjour claude. good blur photo with muted colors and less available light. the blur effect goes very well with a wet day photo, it looks like your lens was also wet. so, these people are rushing for the roasted chicken? :) i guess it is high time for lunch.

I like this a lot Claude - It is a camera "sketch"; much like an Impressionist painting it conveys the scene with a few quick well chosen strokes of a brush. A pleasure to see. Warm regards Rosemary

Deliberate slow-shutter blur doesn't go down too well on this site, if the evidence of my last posting is to be believed! Let's hope yours does better. This is a very impressionistic take on urban life: bustle and gloomy weather. I'm intrigued to read that the shutter speed was, if not a mistake, at least an inadvertent grab!

Hmm ... reminds me of a psychedelic trip haha.
Otherwise it is very good and impressive.
Greetings and all the best ...

I have no problem with creative shots like yours here or like Will's earlier. Any photographer who likes to experiment with camera settings will ultimately move away from 'accurately recording reality in two dimensions' which is impossible anyway. There is much more satisfaction in creating an artistic image that contains extra subtle dimensions. Artistic shots are much better for story telling and conveying mood and movement. They have more impact and interest. A photographer who attempts their own artistic shots is much more likely to understand and appreciate your image in their own way. More importantly they will appreciate that you see something special in your image that you want to share with us. We need more images like these on TE, and more images where the viewer can see that some effort and thought has been expended (record shot or artistic shot), otherwise the site could become quite mundane.
Anyway, I like it.

Le hasard fait parfois bien les choses dans la création artistique; c'est tout à fait le cas ici. Un résultat très intéressant.

This is utterly delightful!
It is like the painting of an impressionist.
It has captured mood rather than details.
So much your developing style!
Have a lovely day,

I have visited TE for a while and I popped in to take a look and saw this image, I remembered a photo I took in storm last week and this inspired me to post as well.
I like the structure, the composition the shapes like silhouettes. Also the blurred tones capture the movement of the moment - we all know what it is like to run for shelter in bad weather.

I love the ghostly figure hurrying along with her bag on wheels and the umbrella. Lovely soft tones and well cropped.
Creative work - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann
