Default Center of Attention.

Please critic. Blur and Defocus all intentional. Trying to implement a concept where the frame would look good even without a proper focus and motion blur.

The girl tried to draw Zorro , who decided to gracefully pose for the girl. A photographer chances on the moment. The blur and camera shake is deliberate.

You know this because you were there but the viewer of the picture only sees a out of focus picture with no unserstanding of why it's blurred. Now if the girl was in focus and everyone moving in toward her was blurred, then the viewer would understand that everyone was rushing up to see her for some reason. This would start the viewer thinking about what is she doing that everyone wants to see.

If the blur and focus elements/issues were on purpose, and this image works for you then good job. from someone who was not there and has only the photo to give me an idea of what was going on, id say the blur and lack of focus detract from the image. my eye has no real focal point. it looks like a rushed snap. sorry if thats harsh.

Could you tell me what the purpose of bluring the image is? I am not sure I follow that particular style fluently. I think the concept of center of attention works perfectly, aut I cannot fathom why the shake blur is attractive to you in this photograph....Help me understand your thought for this application.
