    Interesting pic. But, in my opinion, if you are gonna blur the background, I'd blur the bird too.

    The blur just doesn't do it for me. The pose that the guy is in is nice but the picture just doesn't seem cohesive with the blur.

    The bird not being blurred is kinda distracting (well, I didn't notice it at first, but when someone else pointed it out it seemed kinda out of place). I do like the shot though. The look on the guys face makes you think he doesn't have a care in his head, while the world is busy moving at a fast pace, here's this guy just sitting there peacefully. Don't know if that's what you were going for but that's what I got out of it, and (aside from the bird) I think it works pretty well.

    also, there's a halo around your subject- a motion blur might work better, then tweak the blurred layer so the outer fringe of the blurred subject is hidden by the unblurred subject on another layer


    i do like the concept.

    didja try black and white?
