Unfocussed, on the road to Modica

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:

  1. It looks like a painting and dreamy is a good word. So too is ethereal.

  2. 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 🙂

  3. Dream like indeed, Sue. An experiment that worked well.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. It really looks like a painting. Your experiment worked very well!

  5. Wow! So beautiful! The photo like an impressionist painting.

  6. Amy

    I like this blurry photo! Well done, Sue!

  7. Lovely. So serene, yet caused by rapid movement.

  8. Well done Sue, definitely dreamy.
    And on that note,. I’m off to bed!

  9. Has the appearance of a watercolor.

  12. This could be interpreted in so many ways! Wonderful fluidity.

  13. Ellen Whittle

    Really like it. Would it get a 20 in our club competition?

  14. Eleazar

    One would say that you painted it! Very nice to see how different images we can take by mastering the technics.

  15. wonderful like an acquarel, Sue

  16. You’ve captured the dreamscape that’s the Sicily I remember 🙂

  17. It is indeed a very dreamy, impressionistic landscape. Feels like you have created a water colour painting. Beautiful.

  18. I took so long to comment, that everyone has already said what I want to say.

  19. Hi Sue, it’s a work of art – really beautiful! P

  20. Dreamy is exactly the right word, Sue. A bit of experimentation has produced something special

  21. Love this one very much.

  22. Gorgeous part of the world, stunning capture, looks like a fine art painting!
