Judges Comment

Motion blur isn't always desired, but in the case of the shopkeepers and market goers captured in this image, it works well since it helps convey the flutter of activity in this busy market. The use of more open space at the bottom instead of the top of the frame reinforces the idea of movement and activity because viewer will unconsciously allow the objects on top to 'fall' into the open space which is the path.

Photographers Comment

This picture was taken at the busy Ubud markets, Bali, Indonesia. One neat point was being able to shoot down from the upper floor of the surrounding buildings into the market place. Gear used was a Leica Monochrom and a Voigtlander Super Wide-Heliar Aspherical II 15mm lens. Regards, Andrew
