I can appreciate blur to show motion but this one just looks like the wrong ISO was chosen. Sorry, for me its a no.

I agree. Motion blur is cool but if you were just sitting next to her on a bus trying to catch a candid photo and missed focus then it's a throw away for me. If this is a person you don't know then this may fall in the lines of being 'a little creepy'.
yeah, i figure for most it's a no, ha ha. it's meant to be creepy in a way, or what some might call "creepy"--but for me it's art, and the viewpoint of an eye not face to face, and not belonging to a human of adult height. it's "creepy" in the sense that this eye is invading a space, making the viewer uncomfortable and raising awareness. i guess it falls under the "creepy street photography" category, but i guess many of those folks would say it's a "fail" also. most of my shots that i post are of people i don't know.
the photo i love because it is ethereal, hence the name "apparition." she's a ghost, that may or may not be there. lovely, and faultless because simply she cannot be seen clearly.
what is not seen in that picture is her bf, and they were making out for a good 5min on the train, totally at each other. this was just about the only second she was not entangled with him.

here is another blurry shot. shot during my vacation in canada. my gf and i were walking and i was having some fun trying to catch her in a "moment", thus had my camera setup at a slower shutter speed to hopefully get a shot with some of her dress in motion. but this couple walked by and i swung around to shoot them, while walking at the same time.
