Thanks for all the nice comments.

After taking numerious shots I decided on this shot because of the sharpness of the girl smiling. I wish she was alone in the cup. Here is an outake I decided not to use.

The sharpness of the girl is incredible, considering that everything else in the photo is extremely blurry.

This is a very good capture. It has a great sense of motion, color, and above all... fun! I also like the nice, simple title. Well done!

Great shot. It's isolated your model really well. Looks like she's having fun too.

Back to bump you up to 9. So curious how you got her so clean while the girl beside her is so blurred. Great effect.

A great example of a good motion pan. i like the sharp focus on one model and the blur on the otehr- the colors in the background are very nice

While the technical information I offered regarding motion panning is correct, I may have been previously wrong in reassessing one particular image which I described in the previous post as (disputed). I am giving that photo the benefit of doubt and going back to the previous score I gave a 10. Good luck


Hi
I received you email. I do not know if you will have a chance to see this note again.
I just need to know what was your panning direction when the shot wsa taken.

I spent about 10 minutes studying one particular photo that I gave a score of 10 along side with a second photo that received 10 too. The second photo is a typical motion panning shot; the camera is locked to a speeding traveling object that should look sharp depending on the ability of the photographer or the technique to hold the equipment steady relative to the moving object and to keep the intended object in one place in the view finder, and at the same time causing the background to appear blurred, and that means "motion blur like" background, were the direction of the blur lines are parallel to each other and go along with the directional movement of the camera(equipment).

Now, the blur in the first photo (disputed) which should have been a "motion blur like" due to the movement of the camera against a standstill background was anything but "motion blur like", and the background had all kinds of blur and directional movement because the back ground itself was a moving one and the subject was 100% net because it was 100% immobile.

I can't elaborate much more on this disputed shot, in fear I will have made it so clear which photo I am talking about. The thing is I wanted to know how the shot was taken while keeping the subject safe in the heart of all the background movement, AND I think I did.

Finally I am not a DNMC Nazi but this is DNMC 1.
