About the Image(s)

Title: Dragon Boat Racing

The photo was taken on June 08, 2019 on the Masch Sea in Hannover. Panning, I tried dragging the camera along with different shutter speeds while taking the photo and wanted to achieve a strong wiping effect.

I took this photo with a shutter speed of 1/10 second. The slower the shutter speed, the stronger the wiping effect, but the sharpness suffers. At 1/60 second, the sharpness is better, but the wiping effect is too small for me.

Camera and Lens: EOS 5D MKIII, EF 70-200mm f2,8L IS II + Extender 1,4x III, focal length 280 mm, Stabiliser mode 2,
Settings: f:25, ISO 50, at 1/10 sec.

Hans, I really like this image. Your shutter speed leaves enough details to keep interest in what is going on yet still get the effect of the blur. You have an interesting mix of subjects on your posts. My Son Hans is here from Fankfurt to get this second covid vaccination. I it nice to see him after two years since we can not visit Germany now.

Hi Bruce, I'm glad you finally got to see your son Hans after two years. I received my first Covid vaccination two weeks ago, unfortunately the second vaccination is not for another 3 months.   Posted: 05/07/2021 10:56:44
