Blurry Subject, Crisp Background
Challenge has finished
This should push the limits of your creativity. I want the subject (and there MUST be a subject, no landscapes) to be out of focus while the background is crisp and clear. This goes against most peoples' instincts when taking photos.

When an intended subject is moving quickly autofocus systems have a tendency to "grab" the background - even when the subject is within the selected "focus area". This image serves as a reminder that performing *stars* - such as the former world figure skating champion Elvis Stojko - do not live in a vacuum. Many other talented people are needed to complete the show.
