ISO: 160
Shutter: 1/30

My Nephew swinging. I didn't want to take the normal silky-smooth shot of water. I had another idea, but it meant multiple exposures which is outside of basic.

Here is my Nephew on his swing purposely shot at a low shutter speed for the lens while panning.

Post Processing via Capture NX
-Slight LCH adjustment
-Auto Levels
-Unsharp with high radius
-Size redution
-Unsharp
-Convert to color profile

Post Processing time 5 minutes

I don't expect this one to do well. Probably mid 4s if that. Though I wanted something unconventional for this challenge.

Jayson, I guess the voters didn't think this was silky enough. This shot is fantastic. You got robbed big time.

Love it. 7 from me but I don't think it counted. The light at the top is great.
