About the Image(s)

This image was taken in "lil' Havana" district of Miami recently. I looked for "panning" opportunities as the traffic was lighter than usual. Camera specs are 1/60 sec, f/16, ISO 100; using burst mode. Post processed using Lightroom and PS. I desaturated the background slightly and sharpened the subject/s. Straightened and cropped in PS.

Gloria, great panning shot. It is not easy and it takes a lot of practice. You were able to keep the riders and motorcycle sharp and blur and dark background. The flying hair and the body language of the woman improves the image. Plenty of room in the front to move into. though, they are not wearing protective helmets.   Posted: 11/02/2021 13:29:38

A classic example of panning but very well executed. Sharpness and blur are in the right place and the lady is very elegant .   Posted: 11/14/2021 03:31:17

Gloria, Really good street scene image. You added Pop to the story by catching the girl as she is in the process of fixing her hair. The story in made complete with the muted background. Good job.   Posted: 11/15/2021 14:54:07

Wow. You really 'nailed' this image. The riders are well focused while the background is blurred without losing the context of what it is. The riders are so casual and clearly relaxed about riding the motorcycle that the woman can fix her hair and ride without holding on to the driver (and of course without helmets).
