I was taking photographs of random things and the lockers caught my eye, I moved my camrea during the capturing of the photo to give it movement, not one of my best but it's pretty good

Although I agree with [user]f1dave[/user] it can show the camera movement so this technique can be used but to be effective I would add something to the shot to so why the third person (camera) is moving to complete the story. You could add a person that appears to have pushed the camera person back or a spider causing you to jump to help lead the voter to the conclusion the movement was the camera rather than the lockers. Hope thwe information helps.

I can see the effect that you were trying to get. You could do better.

Accidentally hit the button?

I understand your intention of creating a Action impression with the closets closing (this is what i thought) but the effect of motion blur in this shot didn't get me so much, maybe because the object is just a closet. The white part at the right top is distracting, but i like the orange. I'm sorry if i was rude, it's just my opinion. Good luck, bye.

There might be more to it but all I'm seeing are blurry lockers.

I really don't see the action in this photo.
