Comment by whagerbaumer:
A candid shot with a blank background is a little strange. I like the expression, light distribution, but the bottom of the picture and shoulder seem purposely blurred (not out of focus) and very uninteresting.

This is a lovely shot. The woman reminds me a lot of my cousin, who has nearly the same name (Kathleen). Nice job!

Hi. First of all this photo fits the challenge, so there's no problems there. The panning technique is one of the hardest to master and it's very difficult to get decent results. I think you've done a good job here. I think the main reason that you didnt get a higher score is that even though the boy is sharp as far as the panning goes, he still looks a little soft. I think this is due to the post processing not the photo-taking. When you scale down a photo to fit DPC sizes, they always become soft. I've found the best way to fix this is to afterwards use Unsharp Mask with these variables:

Amount: 170 %
Radius: 0.4 pixels
Threshold: 0 levels

I tried this on your photo and it sharpens the boy a lot, improving the photo no-end.

I think a slightly different crop would also make it a bit better. Perhaps moving the boy more towards the left of the frame. This would increase the space on the right of him, to make it look like he is riding into the photo. This is a technique used a lot for action, and also for portraits. Looking into the frame is often better than looking out of the frame.

Overall this is a great attempt at the technique, and would look even better with just a little more basic post-processing.
