Challenge: Motion Panning II (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
Location: Amman - Jordan
Date: Jan 11, 2007
Aperture: 32
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/30
Date Uploaded: Jan 11, 2007

I wetted the basketball with water to bring out a deep saturated color and to have some water trail effect; then had my son bounce it to a constant rhythm; after that I bent my back and followed the rebound beat, with my neck and head, up and down, until I felt I had a sync with the bounce; finally, I started taking shots as I rocked. As apparent by the highlight, on the wet ball, caused by the sun, the shot was taken in the afternoon in broad daylight under direct sunlight.

Sharpened slight contrast and color adjustment… cropped and resized

I may be wrong, but I would call this a motion tilt, I'm no expert though, so I give you the bennefit of the dought with my score.

Great photo. Really different to a lot of the other photo's in the challenge. The colour and centralization (is that even a word???..you know what I mean) of the ball really pops out at you.

very interesting take on the challenge. my only gripe is that it's a bit too centered, but that's more personal taste than anything else. good work.

love the brightness in colour of the ball

Really nice job of tracking and additional effects (water splash). Centered composition leaves this image lacking slightly as there is a minor question of what direction the ball is going in. Without the splash, this would be very bad. Would like to see a crop where the ball is slightly lower in the frame.

Nice. Also, I love the decision to use a "portrait" format.

One of few vertical MP shots in the challenge. Works well enough though.
