    This could not be more stunning! The slight blur gives it a very soft quality, and the black and white works wonderfully. Excellent capture, Stuart.

    I truly love this shot. It would not surprise me if one of your pictures, like this one, lands in some publisher's lap.

    I think the slow shutter is perfect, as is the B&W tone. You can "feel" the motion - no wonder this pix if HOT! Well done, even if it was a "mistake!"
