Gabe Saher went for the motion blur on his shot of a drummer. The idea is admirable but the background is very distracting, the pole seems to be growing out of his head, the construction sight across the street is messy. Would a different angle have given you a cleaner background?

With the longer exposure for the blur the bucket is overexposed and detracts from the drummer. I like the idea, next time try to find a cleaner background and a slightly shorter exposure for a more defined blur. I am glad to see someone taking a chance on something a little different from the norm.
