  1. They all worked well Sue, but I like the one with the tree best. Less abstract than the others perhaps, but the blue sky came out as a lovely colour.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Sue

      Thanks Pete…all taken from a moving minibus, when I decided to see what I could come up with. Trouble is, I didn’t have the NDs to hand, and I couldn’t get a slow enough shutter speed – had to resort to some violent movements! 😀😀

  2. These are fabulous! I also favor the shot with the tree!

  3. I rather like the last one, it would fit into Ailsa’s theme of ‘subtle’ this week. Lovely gentle tones.

  4. Caz

    Interesting! I like the first one but the one with the tree wins for me. I think it’s the hint of just a little white cloud in an otherwise blue sky, the shape of the lone tree and the sense of gentle ups and downs in the landscape – more to look at perhaps. Wouldn’t mind being there right now!

  5. Very effective Sue, especially the third

  6. Your intentional abstract makes it art. 🙂 Nice work.

  7. Good to know my eyes don’t need testing! I was worried at first 🙂

    • Sue

      Thanks, Gavin! It was a bit of a challenge, as I couldn’t get the shutter speed as low as I wanted with no NDs on me at the time. Camera got hurled around a bit…

  8. Suzanne

    These are great. I particularly like the one with the tree in the middle of the frame. I love the concept of photographing life at 100k.

    • Sue

      Thanks, Suzanne…glad you like them! It was a fun exercise

      • Suzanne

        I was looking at an artist (in an art magazine) who does paintings based on photos she takes from moving car windows. Your photos are very similar. So much of life passes in a blur these days but we rarely comment on it.

      • Sue

        I wanted to create something more reminiscent of a painting than a photograph, and I think it has succeeded at some level 🙂

  9. I love those – #4 my choice but all would make a wonderful montage.

  10. Superb colour and movement Sue! 🙂

    • Sue

      It was fun trying to create these without an ND filter – I really had to chuck the camerA around as I couldn’t get a slow enough shutter speed!! 😳
