A Sense of Loss?

The focus makes the girls seem to be disconnected, as if she is a ghost or a memory. Was this your intent?

Hi Kevin, thanks for the comment and rating...I was experimenting with motion and selective focus, as this particular girl was moving around in a very trancelike way with her butterfly net. What I didn't expect was that Neopan 1600, with its distinctive grain and highlights, would render her so ghostlike...I expected more motion blur than translucent grain. The web version is not perfect...the print is really more striking...but I appreciate your open-mindedness in looking at this.
