    I took this picture June of this year at Redington Shores Beach in Florida. I didn't mean for it to come out blurry. It was a bit windy so the camera was shaky. However, a lot of people have told me that they like it being blurry because it seems quite haunting. I was wondering what you all thought?

    Thanks.

    it's kinda neat! I like the idea, if it was me I'd crop out the buildings as they just say camera shake to me and leave the beach and the girl and I think it would look more intentional.

    I agree with lizheaemma. A crop that excludes the buildings will look awesome (not that the original is bad ;)) and very intentional (I'd crop vertically, if you have the resolution to do so).

    Absolutely - even after cropping, you still have plenty of beach and shore left to lead the eye in, and give the lonely, empty space to the lone figure. And you have a beautiful, dramatic sky. It's going to turn out great! :D The blue tones in this image are gorgeous, and fit the mood perfectly. Love it!

    I have to agree with everybody else. If you do a bit of cropping...you'll have a killer shot. Nice one.!!!
