117 Beautifully Blurry PhotosS

Motion blur! It doesn't just ruin photos. It's also something that can be used for artistic effect, when done properly. And for the results of this week's Shooting Challenge, we've got 117 photographers who did just that.

This is my favorite Korg, and I thought this would be pretty cool to capture "In motion!"
I used a Canon Rebel T1I
f/25
20 Second Exposure
18-55mm Lens (shot at 27mm)
ISO 100
Developed in Lightroom2
And my lighting was a small fluorescent tube light, the size you would put in a closet and such... -Marcel Maynard
