About «paint it with blur»
In a way, how to approach Impressionistic ideas with a camera and intentional blur?
How do you intentionally blur a photo, all of it, and yet, come out with
something that pleases you? Well, here you don't have to explain it, just post the image. Well, there is a little more than that to this madness.
This group is to present images that achieve a je ne se quoi with blur, where many things may not be distinguishable, just an outline of something familiar to you, and for others to fill in with their imagination.
This group is not about: (1) accidental, typical, or deliberate motion blur (unless you are very clever); (2) an accidental blur; (3) intentional blur that conveys a story (see Sharpness is Such a Bourgeois Concept), usually involving people (think Cartier-Bresson with the blur notched up). There are exceptions, these are just the main considerations, and not automatic disqualification.
This group is mostly about inanimate objects, or actions, brought to life by the intentional blurring that you decided on. As such, people are VERY likely to be silhouetted. This subjectivity means that the pool will be heavily curated. (For example, two images with similar styles, will have the earlier one removed if perceived to be of lesser quality.)
