This photograph of my daughter was taken a few weeks ago in some sort of fun park. Afterwards the slide was scanned and then manipulated with Photoshop. The background - which was distracting was selected and blurred with motion blur to enforce the motion

Hi Pascal,

Great photo, the blurred background really suits this subject...looks like a winner!

Thanks Mike for your comment. Aspecially in snap shots it isn't always possible to set your subject free of the background. So that was the first idea of the altering for this photograph. By using the motion blur filter it supported also the action. #8267
