I too had this pegged for top ten.

I wish I could have given it more and would have tried if I had known that you did all of this without any digitial 'assistance' from PS in motion. As it was, I did give it a 10....

Yet another one I'd love to see in top10. Great capture.

Great shot. The motion blur is perfect with enough detail to keep it interesting.

Or...maybe...They're running because somebody's "on-the-lamb." :)
All humor aside...Great pan shot! I will learn from you.

You really create a sense of movement with this photo - I keep expecting them to run off the screen! Was this done by panning?

Very clever. This gave me a good laugh!

This is a really good shot. It speaks well of your technique that I can't tell if this was done by panning the camera, or done in Post Processing. However it was achieved, good job.

Terrific action shot! Great colors and just the right amount of blur.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2006 06:02:08 PM
Nice rendering of moving subjects. Wish more of them where sharp. Like the colours also and the composition. Perhaps a bit dark (even on my super bright monitor). All this just imo, obviously. Good luck!

What a great feeling of motion from this photo, makes me wonder why the sheep are running so fast! Well done.

Bump from 9 to 10.

I really like the movement you've caught here, yet managing to keep the ram's face sharp. The green and yellow palette is just beautiful.

There'sone sheep's head that's really sharp. Did you pan with them? If so, it's a brilliant job of panning and a real sense of motion is presented to the viewer.

A wonderful sense of movement & energy
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 08:14:45 PM
Nice movement.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 07:13:28 PM
this is beautiful. Looks like some of the blur was added after the fact but it doesn't matter - you saw what you wanted to capture. I love the single face in focus. Adds so much impact - singles him out if you will, that it gives the image much more depth . what can I say? 10

Ewe seem to know what you're doing with this nicely-dark motion blur.

Great pan, well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 02:59:58 PM
Terrific image. Very vibrant. Lots of energy. Focus, plus DOF blur, plus motion blur are brilliant. Well done. Among my top picks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 11:59:16 AM
Love the blur. Love that you got a nice sharp capture the foremost sheep's face. This is one of my favorites after viewing 105 images.

The sense of motion is so well captured it's almost like watching a moving clip of this scene rather than looking at a still photograph. Very nice job!

very good. that one head in focus, very nice. i think you should tell me how you took it. 7

Great work and use of a slower shutter speed to indicate motion and suspense.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 08:39:17 PM
This is fantastic if it was all done in camera! The lines of the grass as you panned, and the swirls of the fur moving around, all make this an excellent shot! 9

Great movement yet with excellent clarity at the point where the eye settles. Well done for mastering the technique
