As I'm VERY new to everything but snapshot photography I decided that this challenge would be a prime opportunity to work my motion skills.

Armed with my new EF 75-300 IS USM my friends and I drove into the Blackwall Tunnel, my friend kept the car steady (he was driving, lol)... hmmm maybe if I had been driving myself I could have gotten a higher score ;)

Anywhoo, got two decent photo's out of the bunch and submitted this one as I thought the motion blur was nicer on this one.

Very good clarity and effect from the blur. It's tough to get these - I know from experience!

BTW - it's 'Blackwall' not 'Blackwell'. : )

Great shot. Nice focus and blur on the sides. Suggestion: crop off a bit on the right side for better composition.

A nice motion pic, however not very innovative for me. Although more so than the majority of others! 6

Ooo, I like this idea. As I interpret your technique, you have a speed blurred surroundings and relatively in focus cars. I would be tempted to push the shutter speed slower and see what kind of wild bluring you can get.

Very nice how you kept the cars in such nice focus. I also like the idea of a tunnel as breaking new ground.
