Challenge: Motion Panning (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Minolta DiMAGE A2
Location: NYC
Date: Feb 3, 2006
Date Uploaded: Feb 5, 2006

I chose to go with this shot that showed a lot of the motion blur because I liked the effect of the city lights in the background and the sense of scene that it gave to the photo.

For those that asked the shutter speed was .8 seconds.

Excellent separation of subject and background. Really great job. What shutter speed was used?

rediculously underrated...

this would look good at, say, 5'x4', or larger.

One of the few images in this challenge that "transcends" the effect and has a life of its own. Serious bump.

The isolation is really good.I was going to ask about a tighter crop, but now I don't hink so

Nice shot.

I like this shot but there are two things that bother me with it. I would have liked a slightly sharper cuclist, he is a little bit too panned for my taste. Also the dark shadow in the lower left corner is drawing my attention from the cyclist. Anyway, nice shot, feels he is all alone in the big city. 7 from me.

Good panning shot, I would have cropped him tighter.

The blurring in the background gives the feeling of this little cyclist in a big place. Nicely done.

Nicely done, with a kind of surreal feeling to it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

not a technically perfect pan but it's very nice with the slight blur of the subject too! me likey

pretty cool. clearer image would have been nice, but understandable.

Beautiful! Good luck.

Oh, this one is good. Hope you did not use any photoshop filter to strengthen the effect. 9

Very cool I like the use of negative space.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2006 12:36:10 PM
with such a small subject, I think the image would be much better cropped. I think the cyclist cropped to be at the lower right corner of the frame would have been much more dramatic. 7

Nice composition. Good luck

great panning shot! one of my top picks!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2006 03:04:03 PM
Favorite so far. It's nice to see a motion pan with a subject that doesn't nearly fill the frame. (9 and good luck!)

My favorite of the bunch!

Pretty good attempt at a difficult challenge. Tighter/cropped would be better. Would be better if subject were sharper, try matching the motion more exactly and/or slightly faster shutter speed.

NICE! Love the stripes of red. Bikes are such a wonderful shape with the lines and circles. Good one. 9

Wish a bit more of your subject were in focus. Good example of motion panning.
