So, I'm really curious as to what you think. Cool effect or just bad photography? I know there is a lot of noise in there, too.

This was at a kind of a fashion show at a small nightclub.

There are things which I certainly liked about this picture:

the colours,

the lighting,

the angle of shooting,

...andabove all the running glance of the subject

What I don't care is the noise!

The 1/3'' exposure time gave itthe 'expected'motion blur,however, which could beconfusedwith camera shake, imo! Amotionlike flow ending with a sharp final pose wouldbe preferable, however difficult it might attain given the shooting conditions...

Thanks for the comments bahadir! I often have noise issues. I like shooting at low light without flash. And this one was at zoom, as well. So, I am sure I was at a high ISO.

My thoughts echo Bahadir's exactly. A flowing motion blur would have worked but this blur is too random and looks like an unsteady hand. I don't think the noise would have been as objectionable if the subject was less blurred. Challenging conditions and it looks like a great opportunity to try things and learn (which is exactly where I am with my own photography).

Just tell everybody that this is exactly the effect you were going for. Use the exif data to dazzle them with your photographic knowledge. Toss out phrases like "F Stop" and "aperture". Your non photo taking friends will be impressed. I've seen pictures like this taken by so called professional photogs hanging in art galleries. They've been fooling people for years. Keep up the "good" work.

Ha! You guys are probably all correct. It's been a while since I took that, but like I said, it was at a nightclub, so I am sure I was at least a little tipsy. The model was up on stage and not really posing specifically for me, just doing her thing. There were a zillion other fans around with all size cameras, big pro rigs down to little handy cams. And there were the regular nightlife denizens dancing and milling around. Not the best of conditions. That's why I asked.

I like this shot a lot!

With a minor pp you can get the max impact! It is an artwork itself.. ie.. the effect from the deffect.. you got the right feeling yourself, don't you?
