Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

August seems to enjoy a lot with the branches, as an urban Jane (Tarzan's friend)
Funny shot!

@Paco Díaz: We did better than to hang out with 'Cheeta' that day - there was a full grown elephant-seal under this bridge and we got pretty close. He looked at us - snorted - rolled over on his side and went back to sleep.

Pavan Kaul from Mumbai, India

Beautifully posed...lovely tones and motion to depict the title! Great shot Stephen!

peter.K from blue mountains, Australia

nice body, (am i allowed to say that?) nice composition, and the blur lifts it above the ordinary, probably not a lot of photographers would be game enough to include the movement, very nice touch...

@peter.K: Well, Peter - you said it and why not? Nice bodies are - well - nice. This was my favorite image of the day - it just fit somehow. I don't enjoy doing the expected, safe expression.

k@ from Paris, France

The movement is wild for sure, she seems just out of Mother Nature's womb - great sensation with those open shaped below.

@k@: Thanks for the thought, Karine.

Marie LC from France

Love the movement !

No wonder Wilson of Waterbury (formerly MontereyJohn) has you on his site today. You two together are probably dangerous. Hahaha. Very imaginative shot today Stephen; cutting edge with that movement. I like it.

Marcie from Newton, United States

The captured motion..the blurr - is in perfect keeping with the title.

@MARIANA: Hey - if you can't avoid them - invite them to the party.

pretty cool pose and perspective - kicking and screaming all the way..I do like the pose though, very almost primitive..great photo.

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks Denny - I concur.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

What strange thoughts are going through my mind at the sight of those twitching feet :-)

Ralph Jones from Detroit, United States

I like how the motion blur blends organically with the tree branches. Very nice.
