I threw it in PS to show you what I was talking about...

I tried a radial blur but it got too funky looking, so I did a motion one with the boy isolated...

For this one, I just did the same as above and tweaked the brightness/contrast of the boy a little bit...

The original is much better.

If you need to add photoshop hackery to an image, its not a good image.

This one does it for me.

Something very old yet very human about it. Don't know if its what NG is looking for but its something I would hang in my home.

I'm no photographer but Zod does make some sense.

I like the blue boat one too, it has the feel of motion.

IF the ultimate use of the photograph warrants "photoshop hackery," then it's fine. For an advertisement, for effect, etc. -- but you're right, for the NatGeo purposes, the only "enhancements" that should be considered should be for toning and clarity and not for a major change in the image's character.

Is that a canon Mark III that you're shooting with?

Good pics

Any of the boat shots. The first one stood out to me and I don't know why. The second is great as well. The one with the boy is also nice.
