Wow! This is so cool, Alexandra!!! ... but they look more like mummies than ghosts to me! Ha! Ha! The intentional blur makes for a very unique and wonderful capture! An instant fave for me! :) #10136088

Alexandra Hankova May 14, 2012

Thank you all for your lovely comments. Lorna, you are right! I was thinking the same, but couldn't decide between mummies and ghosts as they also seem to be "transparent" a bit, haha and then I thought that ghosts are little less creepy than mummies, so I went for them! :-D #10136223

WOW...the motion here is unique and perfect, Alexandra. Anything less than a First Place Gold will be short-changing this image, IMHO. I wish I had captured this, FAVED and good luck!!!
