Tnx to all the commenters and viewers,
I'm really did not understand the theme of the challange, I thought it was all about motion, and I c I was wrong.
Anyway, tnx to those who liked the picture inspite the fact it does not match the challange :)

Now that the challenge is finished I can say that this is a hell of a good photo. I can feel the dancing here. Still so many things to be improved, but a lovely results (I mean, the photo, not the score).

There was something about this image that I liked, but I can't really put my finger on it; maybe the contrast of the pretty sharp right wall with the blurred dancers and the play of the light. Even so, I can't really identify the motion panning aspect; the primary subjects are all blurred, and my eye always seemed to be looking for something else.

You captured the motion of the dance, but in a backwards sense.
Had this been a motion pan, the background would have been blurry, keeping the main subjects at least somewhat in focus. 4

Subject should be frozen and background in motion.

Long exposure, not panning :(

The motion is coming from the dancers movement not panning. Therefore -points for the challenge.

This is not motion panning, just slow shutter.

Hmmm. The background is sharp, and the subjects are blurred. Don't think this meets the challenge. I believe it's supposed to be the other way around.

Doesn't meet the challenge

Cool lighting I just think you picked the wrong time to close the shutter since they're really not doing anything but standing there. 6

i see motion, but no panning. excellent image, just in the wrong challenge.

in motion panning you track the subject to freeze it and blur the subject. i do like this shot though.

there needs to be more light, and I think it would have been bever if one of the dancers are in focus

This is motion blur..not panning motion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

no panning...

Colors are muted and shadowed heavily. Image subject is not interesting.

Not motion panning -- this is long exposure.
The environment is stationary. The subjects are blurred (in motion). To achieve motion panning, you should have a slow exposure and be tracking a moving subject so that you stop the motion of the subject and blur the background, leaving the impression of action (often fast action).

that's not panning; in panning the subject is sharp but the background is motion blurred.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2007 05:54:48 AM
I think you should follow the object, not the background. :)

Sorry, but this is not motion panning

doesn't seem to be motion panning... camera appears to have been completely still with the moving subjects. the composition looks really interesting though, would have like to seen this with some camera movement.

Panning?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2007 03:37:28 PM
This looks more like a steady camera with a slow shutter speed than panning to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2007 03:05:19 PM
This is a nice composition, but not an illustration of the sort of panning described in this challenge. Otherwise, the subjects would be in focus (or at least relatively in focus) while the background would be blurred.

I think the idea is that the moving things should be clear and the static things blurred. 3

I like the photo and all, but it doesn't really fit the challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting shot and lighting but shows me motion blur - not motion panning. The background is sharp and the subject matter is blurred.

This is motion blur, not motion panning. I like the picture, just not for this particular challenge.

i don't see the panning
underexposed

Not really getting a feeling of panning in this shot. The subjects are moving but the camera is not following them.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I don't believe that this meets the challenge: "motion panning" means (to me) moving the camera to track a moving subject. This image appears to be a slow exposure from a stationary camera to illustrate the motion of the dancers....

Sorry, but this appears to me to be of a motion blur shot than motion panning.
