This is so beautiful! I've never thought of trying a zoom blur before, but you've done it so beautifully that now I'm going to have to play with some of my photos and try it out! Thanks for the inspiration! :)

The blur makes a very soft slide down into all that crisp texture in the center. Good experiment.

It definitely makes an interesting effect and allows one's eyes to fully focus on the centre. I like both versions of this photo and can't decide which I like more. It would be interesting to see both of them side by side in a a large format. After all I think that I like this "blurred" one a tiny little bit more.

Using the zoom blur is NOT easy! In my opinion, you have achieved perfection in this image! Bravo!
