For this week’s Thursday’s Special, Paula has asked us for our interpretation of Unfocussed. In my case, on a trip to Sicily nearly 2 years ago, I was having a play with ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) and slow shutter speeds, to try and create some abstracts from the coach window. This one was taken with a slow shutter speed of 1/3 second, f22……I just pointed the camera at the landscape as we swept past
I think it has created a rather dreamy landscape:

It looks like a painting and dreamy is a good word. So too is ethereal.
Oh, I do love ethereal….but a word I use too frequently, I think!
Smashing! After a while one gets tired of taking tack sharp photos, and wants to experiment. Your work is one of the finest examples how one should push oneself in photography. I am grateful to have you on board answering my challenges 🙂
Well, glad you appreciate it, Paula, and only too pleased to join in with your excellent challenges!
Dream like indeed, Sue. An experiment that worked well.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks, Pete! I had overlooked this one when I previously posted some of my efforts from that trip…always good to rediscover stuff!
It really looks like a painting. Your experiment worked very well!
Wow! So beautiful! The photo like an impressionist painting.
Thank you, Isabel! An experiment that succeeded 😀
I like this blurry photo! Well done, Sue!
Glad you like it, Amy! Fun to create…
Lovely. So serene, yet caused by rapid movement.
Yes, serene seems an unlikely result, but serene it is!
Well done Sue, definitely dreamy.
And on that note,. I’m off to bed!
Has the appearance of a watercolor.
Yes, I thought it was quite painterly!

Schöne Farben – herrlich !
This could be interpreted in so many ways! Wonderful fluidity.
Ah, fluidity…great word!
Really like it. Would it get a 20 in our club competition?
Likely not! Wish I had thought to use it for the last comp!
One would say that you painted it! Very nice to see how different images we can take by mastering the technics.
Yes, it’s interesting to try different aspects of creativity!
wonderful like an acquarel, Sue
An acquarel! Marvellous!
You’ve captured the dreamscape that’s the Sicily I remember 🙂
Always pleased to come up with the goods, Gilly!
It is indeed a very dreamy, impressionistic landscape. Feels like you have created a water colour painting. Beautiful.
Many thanks, Otto….revisiting some of my images from a trip to Sicily a couple of years ago, I previously passed this one by
I took so long to comment, that everyone has already said what I want to say.
Hi Sue, it’s a work of art – really beautiful! P
Glad you think so, Madhu!
Dreamy is exactly the right word, Sue. A bit of experimentation has produced something special
Many thanks, Andy!
Love this one very much.
Thank you, Inese!
Gorgeous part of the world, stunning capture, looks like a fine art painting!
Many thanks! Glad you like it
