Hans, Nice job of panning keeping the cyclists sharp and giving the sense of motion. I would like to see more of the faces and perhaps a little more intensity. Overall a nice image. Bruce   Posted: 09/02/2020 21:47:54

Hello Hans, I like this, sharp where it needs to be a panned at the best available speed. Some Judges might say to 'leave some space to go in to' but as there are two people in the picture, it gives a sensation of speed and the chase.   Posted: 09/07/2020 14:45:40

Panning is something I am working on, so I am glad you posted this so I can see an effective image.   Posted: 09/07/2020 21:00:24
