nice movement capture. you got the subjects in decent focus, the blur is part of the appeal. good shot.
Marcel: Thank you sir! I appreciate it.
The blurring is very acceptable in my opinion because it still isolates your subject and makes it pop. The eyes are led directly to them so subject is very easy to identify. At first glance the photo has very nice impact making it a successful photograph. Further scrutiny however reveals the inconsistency of blurrs making it a bit of a fantasy. If your viewer has ever tried panning with his subjects before, he'd be able to identify the inconsistency in the blurred background. Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't the lights in the background supposed to be static? If so, then why are they blurred in different directions?
Put the scrutiny aside and you've got a fantastic photograph! Very nicely done and I even like the color treatment.
Marcel: Alrigt! I was trying to pan the shot, following the circular motion of the ride. Some of the lights in the background weren't part of the ride, maybe that's why the blurs looked inconsistent. Thanks sir for the in-depth critique!
hi marcel, it's a great photo--i think it's a successful image--toning,and all. ikeep shooting!
Marcel: Thank you very much Kat!
Excellent panning Marcel. Konrad and Nikonographer were right, the focus is decent enough. I like the angle that you took, the focal length that you chose, and the play of light. My only wish now is that the subjects were more energetic. Well, one can't have everything. =) Hehe. Excellent photograph all in all, and that with a steady hand at 1/3sec. Cool!
