The gif above is one of the most subtle we’ve seen- very cool. The Saatchi Gallery in London held a contest for motion photography and some of the results are absolutely stunning. The one’s posted here are some of our favorites- head over to the gallery’s site to see more.

With the rise of smart phones, photographers from all backgrounds worldwide are embracing new technology to tell their stories in innovative ways.

Motion photography has emerged as a new trend, but until recently required special tools and know-how. As part of its wider mission to enable people to pursue and express their interests, Google+ allows anyone to automatically animate a series of still photographs and turn them into motion photography.

In recognition of the exciting potential of this new technology, the Saatchi Gallery and Google+ present the Motion Photography Prize, the first global open entry competition celebrating this new creative art form.

The exhibition showcases the work of the finalists of the six categories as well as the other 54 shortlisted motion photographs judged by a panel of forward-thinkers comprised of film director Baz Luhrmann, artists Shezad Dawood, Tracey Emin and Cindy Sherman and Saatchi Gallery CEO Nigel Hurst.
