About the Image(s)

Deion: This image was taken last year at the Rolling Thunder event in VA on Memorial Day. I used the panning technique to capture the motion of this motorcycle.

Exif data: Canon 7D Mark II, Tamron lenses 18-400mm, ISO 100, F/13.0, Speed 1/45, handheld.

I like how you've effectively used the panning technique to blur the background, yet keep the motorcycle in focus. The position of the cycle with space ahead and complete inclusion of the flag is just right. You could consider cropping part of the sky to just below the wires. Leaving just one set of wires might make them less noticeable (or you could clone them out if they bother you).   Posted: 06/07/2020 15:20:56

Hello Kieu-Hanh,

I have to agree with Ruth on this image. You did a great job capturing the motion and the flag. The only thing I would add is adjusting the brightness. It appears to be mid-day and it is just a little bright. You could try using a radial filter and just darkening the background and leave the feeling of brightness on the rider.

Great job!

A very nice image, I would agree with Ruth, that you should crop the top off, just below, the top wire.   Posted: 06/11/2020 14:38:43

Your panning is great. I have have done a few and none have been as focused and clear on the subject as yours. The only distracting issue to me is the blue light coming down from the tree. Those are things we cannot control. Well done.   Posted: 06/16/2020 09:59:16

You did a wonderful job in panning. You demonstrated motion very well. I also like the crop you did at the top of the image. Great job!   Posted: 06/24/2020 09:50:11

Great panning... and I like your cropped version. I would say, crop even more from the bottom and make it a panning pano.   Posted: 06/30/2020 18:27:52
