I guess I was aiming for motion blur, but found that IS will only help you so much. OTOH, "mistakes" aren't always bad.

I like the guy on the bike, and I like the blurred guy on the right, and I really like the green stripe over the biker's head. But the whole thing ... just isn't hanging together for me for some reason. But you seem to have quite a few admirers of the shot, which is what really matters! :)

Absolutely works, and beautifully so.

I'm with Deb on this one, the blurry guy on the right makes this for me, he's already chasing the moped, only just with his thoughts -- you've caught him leaving his body!

This is pretty neat with the feeling of motion. I do want to holler, pick your feet up and get real shoes on, though! :D

Am hoping that it was a mopid or scooter, which would allow the flipflops.

nice. I enjoy shots like this but I suck at taking them.

Nope. . .certainly not bad in this case. That "mistake" looks very cool.

Love the way he looks like he's about to stop suddenly but the world seems to be going by so fast, very cool.

Very nice mistake. The guy on the motorcycle came out pretty well and I love the streaky effect on the background.

Truly, motion blur is my favorite. It takes something and smears it. COOL BEANS. Whether this is a mistake or not, I dig it.

Love the way his legs seem to be preparing to brake the bike :-)

I really like the color in this. The pink block on the left with the guy staring at you taking the picture. Nice feeling of motion action.

What's neat about this to me is the guy standing there. He's being sucked toward the cycle as it rounds the corner - or perhaps he just longs to have one of his own.
