Date: Feb 6, 2006
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/30

By far the best motion panning shot I got. I guess Broken would be easier but I really want to enter Motion Panning.. can't wait to see what others have captured. If I get over 4 I'm happy. Had fun.

Shot in shutter priority mode.

Good try, I am surprised at how badly this has rated, I had it placed much higher, as the motion on the wheels was evident. I think it was a good try.

Can barely sense movement in this shot.

Nah! You've gotta follow the subject with the camera while the shutter is open. I think you snapped this while cruising next to this dude. Sorry

sorry, but your shutter was a bit to quick. except for the slight blur of the tire, this car would be sitting still. you may have achieved something that meets the challenge, but, all the same, it doesn't really grab me.

Um... where exactly is the motion pan here?

not much motion blur

Not quite enough movement imo. I can see the wheel blurred just slightly but the background is still very sharp.

Nice sharp photo of the car however the background could do with a lot more blur as it almost looks like the car is just parked up. I read somewhere that 1/15sec is a good setting to achieve panning techniques

Not quite enough panning to get a good effect, the background is not blured.

you can tell this isn't in motion! you can tell that the car is staying still for the picture! or at least it's going very very s l o w.

Focus on the driver is good, but not enough panning effect in the background.

If there's any motion blur in this photo it's so slight that I can't detect it, other than in the wheels of the car. Also, the highlights in the snow are blown. Maybe a tighter aperture and a slower shutter speed would have helped. If that's as small as your aperture will go, maybe try a neutral density filter?

maybe just a little too fast shutterspeed
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Sorry, not enough blur in this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Even when the wheel is blur from the motion, the car seems to be static
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A slower shutter speed would blur the background more, and increase the feeling of motion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Was he really cruisin'? Looks more like sitting still in a car. There is no appearance of movement.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The wheels appear to convey the movement of the car but the relative sharpness of the background almost suggests that it wasn't moving very fast or that a fast shutter speed was used.

In terms of composition I would have preferred to see the whole of the front of the car.

Nice sharpness. Shutter speed is probably too high for background blur to show that you met the motion panning challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2006 12:25:23 PM
To me this is not motion panning
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The car is perfectly crisp, however, the background really isn't "moving" very much with respect to the car. You can see some movement in the wheel, but not too much. I think this needed a longer shutter to make the motion more noticeable.

The back ground looks to sharp, IMO. I would have used a slower shutter speed.

way too subtle a motion blur, if any. looks like depth of field.
