    I've really got a thing about "movement" in photographs at the moment, and to me, the best way to convey that is to play about with shutter speeds and get an effect that looks something like this...

    So is it "artistic"? Or just blurry and amateurish??

    I too love movement and time exposures! I like the capture a lot but would rather have seen the building in sharp focus. Was a handheld exposure? Great shot!

    The most effective way to show movement is to make sure part of the image is really sharp - in this instance, the building in the background. It would have really helped improve this image. Still, you got a nice composition here - try this again! The crowd of moving people looks great. :D

    Ditto, on the background needing to be sharp

    Yeah, my own fault. The band caught me unawares and I hadn't unpacked my tripod yet, so this was handheld. I tried to use the wall of balcony as a tripod but couldn't get the right angle. Still, it's all a learning curve!!

    Thanks for your comments.
