A symbol of movement

I'm practising how to present movement in a still image. What I find very interesting about this is the apparent variation in the motion blur in the image above. If you notice there is more blur towards the bottom than there is at the top. Obviously the closer you are to a relatively stationary object (where you are stationed in a fast moving vehicle) the fast the images seem to look like. This is very much represented in this shot.

was this deliberate?

i can make out what looks like a dragon in the middle part of the shot..lol. would have been awesome if you froze a passer-by in this pan.
Jide Alakija: Well it was a shot as part of a bigger story. Yes it would be nice to have passers by but not relevant to what I was going for. Thanks for your comments.
