I stood around for half an hour and took 100+ pictures of boys/girls/men/women in 'bunads' - traditional costumes that each have a design specific to a given area of Norway.

May 17th is the day on which Norway's constitution was first put into practice (I think).

I like this. It reminds me of being at Oktoberfest in Munich for some reason. Cool shot. I think a bit more panning would have made this one really sing, as not enough almost makes it look like a focus issue. Great stuff.

So you spent a day looking at pretty girls hunh. I like this shot, colorful, I also like the motion while still leaving enough detail to see your subject clearly. Nicely done.

Interesting that all your comments knock the motion blur, and here I was about to say that I really like the motion blur in this shot. I'm outnumbered. But I still like it.

Nice colours, but I'm not really fond of the motion blur in the shot.

it would've been more successful if the shutter speed were faster and there was less motion blur.

I think a faster shutter speed to freeze the image would have been better to avoid the blur
