An excellent photo but, in my opinion, it does not qualify. It does not show motion.

Flames are in motion, I guess. I suppose fire could be similar to water in motion but it's Selvin's call.

Reluctantly I'll have to say this isn't quite what I had in mind even tho one could argue that the flames are in motion, the shot doesn't really show that motion well at all either. Sorry.

Now this is an interesting and thought provoking post. Theoretically the flames are in motion, so I can see how you came up with the idea, and I have to congratulate you on having such an imaginative idea too, flames inmotion,simple yet diverse.

I'd say that if someone was running with say a torch, or a good wind was making the fire travel in an 'abnormal' fashion. Though it is naturally in motion, that is it's state of normallity.

How do the blurred flames (especially toward the top of the fire) NOT show motion? I am just an observer in this forum most of the time but this seems to be pretty evident that it meets Selvin's requirement that either the item (the fire) must be blurred due to movement or the background blurred due to panning. It may not be the best example but it meets what was written in the guidelines of the challenge. Once again I am perplexed by the opinions.

The phrase "flames dancing" come to mind.
