This shot looks very painterly, like a watercolor. I did not do anything purposely to achieve this look. For those photo-geeks wanting to know, I think it resulted from the imperfect panning of the subjects and the noise reduction applied to the raw image–both which have the effect of reducing detail in an image. Purposeful or not, I think it has a nice look to it.
