Wow this is a stunner and the best blur shot I have seen so far. This should easily make the finals and deserves to get a place.

Thanks Robin, Alison and Peter.

Peter, there are so many photos submitted, I just never want to try to guess what catches a judge's eye. But I like the shot no matter how it does.

David I agree with you re the number of photos submitted. Even seeing a small percentage of them is very hard. The main thing is that you like the shot as the judging is very personal and an image which does well in one competition can fail totally in another. I like this image very much.

Very true, Peter. You just never know until the judging is complete.

the congrats remains, but disregard the other comment - I thought I navigated to the recent winners and this shot came up - only after I commented did I notice that it wasn't as new as I thought! Haven't quite got the hang of this site - J
