Oops! The camera should pan with the girl, not the background!

I think this misses the mark by having the subject blurred and the background relatively sharp; it is my understanding that the challenge is to do the opposite. Hope this is a helpful comment.

Looks like she's having a good time though :o)

where is the motion panning?
01/22/2007 11:53:01 PM
You captured the motion of her play, but in a backwards sense.
Had this been a motion pan, the background would have been blurry, keeping the main subject at least somewhat in focus. 4

I think the subject should be in focus and the background blurred.
01/22/2007 04:43:21 PM
This is blurry because the subject is moving not the camera so you were not panning so it isn't really fit for the challenge, it is a cute picture though.
01/21/2007 10:31:04 PM
I think this is the reverse of what motion panning means. You should be moving the camera with your subject to keep her still and in focus, allowing the motion to blur the background while keeping her sharp against it :)

Doesn't suit the challenge, no panning!
01/21/2007 05:05:49 AM
This is not panning, just slow shutter.
01/20/2007 10:58:37 PM
the subject should be focus, the background panned
01/20/2007 02:59:41 AM
i don't see any motion caused by panning.
01/19/2007 11:43:10 PM
bad picture
01/19/2007 11:32:01 PM
more of motion blur than motion panning.
01/19/2007 02:29:41 AM
This really has potential to be a great shot. The trick for motion panning is to lock on her and catch her, leaving the background showing the motion. This looks like you locked on the background.

This is motion blur..not panning motion.
01/18/2007 08:01:45 AM
this is not motion panning; in motion panning the subject is sharp and the background is motion blurred through movement of camera in the direction of the subjects movement

Cute kid, I think. Can't actually tell. Try panning with the movement instead (but I guess you figured that out by now). Good idea tho.
01/17/2007 06:44:47 PM
This isn't "panning"; it's the camera being held still while the subject moves fast enough to create a blur.
01/17/2007 05:03:26 PM
this is motion blur, not motion panning

wrong thing(s) blurred 3

This looks like a steady camera with slow shutter, rather than a panning movement following the subject.
01/17/2007 03:17:12 PM
I think you should have moved your camera along with the object and that would be the little girl. Means your primary focus should be the model and not the around area.
01/17/2007 01:51:07 PM
Looks like a nice jolly shot of a pretty girl (despite the blurring). The only problem is that the challenge is Motion panning not motion blur. Therefore the girl should have been still and everything behind her blurred. Good try and you still get a vote from me.

Bummer... this is not motion panning. Motion panning is moving the camera to follow your main subject. Normally, the main subject is in clear focus and the background is not. You will want to practice the technique. It is not all that easy sometimes, but you will like the results when you get a good motion panning capture. :)
01/17/2007 06:50:35 AM
in a motion panning shot, you must move the camera along with the subject, so that the subject is sharp and the background blured
01/17/2007 03:59:05 AM
Ideally, the little girl should be in focus and the background blurred, not the other way around.
01/17/2007 01:28:19 AM
Hmm...not really getting a feeling of panning in this shot. The jumper is moving but the camera is not. The camera needs to move with the subject. (Which will make the subject clear and the background focused)
01/17/2007 01:13:30 AM
Sorry, but this is motion blur, not motion panning.
01/17/2007 12:51:51 AM
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 too slow exposure from a stationary camera to illustrate the motion of the jumping girl (background is in focus)....
