“Artistic” Blurs (Abstract)

Common subjects in nature, photographed from a less common point of view, can create abstract images. Camera motion such as horizontal and/or vertical panning, changing lens focal length (zooming), and subject movement during exposure result in what we hope are “artistic” blurs that are fun or interesting to view.
