    There's a couple of things I want to say about this image. First, I find it interesting that you have to remind people that the camera movement was intentional. It's an artistic image... isn't that enough? Do you find that people try and help you get a sharply focused image because you "screwed up"?

    Secondly, I have to say that it amazes me how you can create such awesome images while moving the camera. When I do it, it's just a blurry piece of crap. When you do it, it's obvious, to me, that it's craft and well done. So, cheers on an excellent image that makes me look closer.

    I know you would prefer honesty, so here goes. This one doesn't work for me as well as your other ICM shots. I am not sure if it is because it is predominantly green, or the blown out highlights, but it doesn't speak to me the same way your ICM shots normally do. Pretty tricky light you had there.

    Appreciate the comments! To answer a bit... yes, some people think I'm making an error so for the occasional newbie, I try to inform them of the intention.
    Really appreciate your comment iggy. All I can say is that I try hard and I likely have thousands of hours of ICM practice which increases my ratio of keepers.

    RM - honesty always. Comment greatly appreciated.

    Thx!

    Admittedly I'm hot and cold about all the ICM images that have shared on the forum. I struggle enough to keep my camera still to get sharp images, let alone intentionally moving the camera. But the other part of all your images is the composition, which you are very, very thoughtful and intentional about, as much as the camera movement part. This composition is an awesome rule-of thirds photograph, and it feels like I'm walking towards Carmy and then notice the people on the bench in the background, and my eyes go back and forth. This in spite of the very bright background that for some strange reason isn't distracting to me, but add here to the very atmospheric backlighting and shadow effects on the leaves and grass. A great exposure.

    I like in general your "impressionistic" style. You clearly have one now.
    Your wife's hat help giving it a french touch.
    I like her feeling looking at something to come into the frame.

    Like mbrager, I too am hot and cold about the ICM. Some of them are just amazing and makes me wonder 'how did you do that?'. Others I'm on the fence but have the feeling that they would grow on me over time. And then there are a few I just don't get. I think that the one element that makes the difference for me is if in the scene there is a subject that is more in focus. If the subject has too much ICM effect then it doesn't work for me. This picture one does works for me. There is just enough definitions of Carmy to make out her expression of looking off into the distance. Not sure if this is taste or one of the stages of learning and appreciating ICM.
