I don't have anything like photoshop so I've had to get a little more creative with manipulations... the effect was achieved with a slow shutter speed while manually moving the camera up and down, something I tried to copy from an art-photography magazine... I thought it worked fairly well...

Time for me to clean my eye glasses once more for this contest, Mary! This came out perfect and is a super entry for the contest. The not so focused disappearing, tree-lined road plus the light on the trees on the right, make for a talented shot. Well done and best of luck to you!

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

Mary, the world would look for me this way if I do not wear glasses, so I would get lost in the woods, lol.

Have peeked trough the entries of the current contest, but didn't see this one (up till now). Would be a great entry.
If this will be an entry, I wish you Good Luck!

Regards, Cornelius.

Mary, if you have the courage to enter the contest not fearing the cost of glasses cleaning stuff and ophthalmologist expenses incurred by some of our friends, then I post mine baby Boris too. If not, then the next contest must be ours - specifically for the best images with no obvious focus !!! :)
Love this creation almost like my own LOL

I think this is the same view Little Red Riding Hood had just after seeing the BIG BAD WOLF.
Fine entry this would make.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

A beautiful and clever image Mary. The colours and use of light are superb. Have you noticed that if you look at it with your eyes screwed up it almost goes into focus?
