If and when you enlarge the photo, you'll see that I got the blurry part right. The frame is uncropped, and certainly tweaked in Photoshop. But even before post-production, I liked it.
I could be talking myself into liking it, for it occurs to me that over the last few days I have been thinking about those unconventional photos, the ones with the sun glare that edits the shot 'just so' and the blur that doesn't directly represent movement, and still they manage to 'work' and convey.
However, let's imagine for a moment that I came to a full stop, or moved in closer, set the camera's exposure, even bracketed, kept the same framing, and the resulting photo was sharp. The intentionality is the same, but would it be appealing? Perhaps there are elements that would draw me in: the ball in front of the tree, the child's t-shirt, the dandelions in the foreground, and the camper as a frame within frame. The things that might have attracted my attention in the first place, had I the time to actually think beyond ooo, me likey.
Likewise, upon seeing the image, I immediately thought I had something special. I've taken a lot of out of focus photos, and dismissed them right away. Not this one. I can't justify it, and maybe that's okay.
