ROFL.....I did the same...Lol. Hit hard on DNMC...Lol... Well, at least one of the many comments thought it was cool..

i would say though, that if the image appears to be motion panning the photographer succeeded whether or not the camera was panned. there is usually more than one path to the same end.

and again, the important thing which a lot of people are missing is that the camera is panned, and not how it is panned - by hands, by servo motor, by truck, or whatever

I spent about 10 minutes studying one particular photo that I gave a score of 10 along side with a second photo that received 10 too. The second photo is a typical motion panning shot; the camera is locked to a speeding traveling object that should look sharp depending on the ability of the photographer or the technique to hold the equipment steady relative to the moving object and to keep the intended object in one place in the view finder, and at the same time causing the background to appear blurred, and that means "motion blur like" background, were the direction of the blur lines are parallel to each other and go along with the directional movement of the camera(equipment).

Now, the blur in the first photo (disputed) which should have been a "motion blur like" due to the movement of the camera against a standstill background was anything but "motion blur like", and the background had all kinds of blur and directional movement because the back ground itself was a moving one and the subject was 100% net because it was 100% immobile.

I can't elaborate much more on this disputed shot, in fear I will have made it so clear which photo I am talking about. The thing is I wanted to know how the shot was taken while keeping the subject safe in the heart of all the background movement, AND I think I did.

Finally I am not a DNMC Nazi but this is DNMC 1.

One comment says its "underwhelming", another gives it a 10 and says its "absolutely perfect".... Another confounding week at DPC! :)

*off to vote ten to all underwhelming photos, just because*

I think 'the thing' most important in a challenge is its SPIRIT. Technically a motion blur can be acheived by 4 ways
- Moving the camera on its axis (in whichever direction) while focusing on a moving subject
- Holding/fixing the camera position but moving the whole camera along with the subject
- Holding the camera and the subject but moving the backgroud (well i dunno what expert photographers think about this one but i tried this too and NO i am not playing in this challenge)
- In PS or any image editing

Now if you shoot your subject sitting against the the window of a moving car, it doesnt become a panning shot. Panning should and MUST include motion of the camera on is axis, whatever and however anyone can try to justify it but thats the bottom line i guess

Jeez, what's going on? I was sitting on 6.7+ at 50 votes and have been on an inexorable slide ever since. Currently:

While the technical information I offered regarding motion panning is correct, I may have been previously wrong in reassessing one particular image which I described in the previous post as (disputed). I am giving that photo the benefit of doubt and going back to the previous score I gave a 10. Good luck

Same here.. I thought I was ready for a Second Best Ever - at 6.5+ and climbing with 130 votes in, then since last night I have slipped to 6.27 with 171 votes!!! Oh well, I guess the picture changed some time during the night
01/18/2007 01:02:30 PM · #64
LOL, I just love the roller coaster ride too!

With 40 votes I was at my high of 7.5 which went down to a low of 6.5. currently I am climbing back up:

Well I'm struggling big time - down from a 5.7 to a 5.3 and freefalling :-(

I think I might be a sad bunny if I get trounced by a load of shots that have focussed on motion blur instead of motion panning . . .

There are still some great motion panning shots out there though.

I think we need to create a club, because mine has done exactly the same!! Bit miffed about one comment tho...I beleive that the DNMC society is alive and well. Maybe we should change DPC to Text book photography challange

I have never had a score just keep on sliding the way this one is. From 6.7+ at 50 votes (and looking like I could maybe be on the way to a new PB) to 6.2 now. It just keeps on falling! What's going on here???
01/18/2007 06:38:38 PM · #69
I think there is some serious trolling going on.

Mine is dropping as well....& no comments..GRRRRRR
01/19/2007 06:06:31 AM · #70

I'd still be rather surprised if you don't end up with a ribbon with a score like that. Lookin' very good....
01/19/2007 07:42:37 AM · #72
Isn't it a bit coincidental that so many people have had their scores dropped by .3!!!! I have also dropped by .3

I have not been a member for very long, les than three months in fact, so Iím not sure what to expect, I looked back at the last motion pan challenge, the top three were all 7.1, so when I saw 7.2 on my shot, I started getting my hopes up, there are a few really good shots out there, so only time will tell, but thanks for the words of encouragement.
