Places | An Evening in Manchester

MAY 2015 THEME CONTEST – MOTION BLUR CROWDS

I was drawn to a photography contest, run by Street Hunters.net a street photography group, whilst trawling the internet this morning.

Together with WP’s daily prompt ‘indecision’ I felt I just had to write this post.

Why?

I remember waiting (well hiding really) in the doorway of a building in Manchester one evening and experimenting with various shutter speeds whilst crowds of people were walking past the wall with an apt title ‘Manchester Means The World To Me’.

Now as you know I’m not a street photographer, which you can read about here and the first question to myself was:

‘Do I submit an image in colour or black and white?’

Secondly, ‘Which image do I submit?’….

So here is the gallery of images I drew inspiration from:

Do you think I fulfilled the brief?

Which image would you have submitted to the MOTION BLUR CROWDS contest?

    1. Thanks for stopping by and the lovely comment! I think I was more interested in the script on the wall if it’s the photo I think you’re talking about. Thanks for your best wishes, much appreciated.

  1. Do you have an image where there is a couple or giving focus to one person image and the rest of blurred people walking passing by?

    I like 4th, 5th, and the last one and I would opt for the last one as the last one represent more of the strong blurry effect.
    Good luck!
