i know what you're after, but think it still needs some practice. you need to get your shutter down to at least 1/60 or slower to make this work.

DNMC? Maybe DOF?

not quite enough background motion blur for me.

I like how you froze her expresion and movement- too bad all the lines in the background are horizontal- hence the panning is less visible. And maybe a tighter crop would help- I feel like there is too much space on the left and above her head.

Not really any motion in the background, but I like the shot.

Nice work on the panning. I think the masks on the wall are distracting I'd like to have seen it as a tighter crop.

Not really getting a feeling of panning in this shot. Sorry.

Maybe a little faster pan or slower shutter speed would have helped this by blurring the (fairly uninteresting) background a touch more. Also, I'd love to have seen the actual vault itself. That could have looked really cool.

There's just not a lot of background blur on this image. To make a truly succesful "motion panning shot", you need to run the shutter at a much slower speed than you would normally use and then, as accurately as possible, follow your subject with the camera (that much you appear to have done well, you just needed a slower shutter speed to blur the background).
