Cinemagraphs (Still pictures that move)
Cinemagraphs are still photos with a part that moves. The best ones incorporate a moving element with other elements that should move, but do not.  It's an unusual, eye-catching juxtaposition between still and moving parts. The worst cinemagraphs look just like a looping video clip, so pay attention to the unexpected stillness found in some parts compared to the moving parts.
