Shoehorning? I had just taken some photos of a damselfly at school, so I decided to take a couple of panning shots of the kids in the playground. I like how this one turned out - it reminds me of paintings by Marcel Duchamp. It's a major crop of the original image.
Converted to jpg in RSE; crop, curves, levels, USM - and a bit of dust spot editing - in PSElements.

Pretty amazing what kind of action takes place in 1/6 of a second! I like the swoop of the back foot. Really an interesting picture to look at.

Nice one, I like the totally blurred effect. Makes it look a bit impressionistic paintinglike.

this image definitely gives the impression of motion. I like the child running like this. I love the background--it's simple and really brings out the child better. Might have been better with the eyes in focus? not sure...well done anyway.

Hmmm.. a little too much motion perhaps...? I do like the colours and comp though. Great effort!
