    Some pans

    Not cooking pans.

    Was downtown on a doc appointment yesterday and not wanting to carry too much stuff went out with just the 50mm.

    Being used to using the long lens for so long, it was a bit frustrating at first with the short one but not all was lost.

    These are the long lens technique used on a short lens.

    Comments, critique, suggestions welcome as always.

    Thanks for viewing.

    I think my favourite is #3. The first one appears to have streaking/blurring other than motion. Was it added in pp? By the time I reached the last image I realized none of the cyclists had helmets on except for the first one.

    Bobo,
    Your photos are very interesting, but #3 is very special.
    Congratulations!

    On photo #2, the car is without license plate or you applied some blur?
    All the best,
    Antonio.

    #1 is cool but it's not a pan. It's motion blur and it's awesome. #3 is the only one that is really, really a pan. Remember to keep the shutter speed down below 1/60 - more like 1/30 and follow your subject. Great job.

    I like the 2nd, but I think the 3rd is the pick of the bunch.
    The first is too blurry for me, as others have noted. The 4th almost works, but the top of the front bicycle wheel appears to be flat. (Maybe the guy has ridden into concrete poles too many times before .)

    Thanks everyone for the useful comments.

    About the pics -

    #1 - yes, that is blur + motion. I liked the flowing lines though the cyclist was quite soft. Added a bit of pp to enhance the lines. Actually looks much much better as an abstracty sort of image at large size.

    #2 - blurred the lic plate to protect the innocent. Not a blurred as wanted as she was coming towards me from my side.

    #3 - I like this best too. But would have liked the person lighter and the overall feel more steaky.

    #4 - Ah the flat wheel. That would be the shades of the light pole just coinciding with the wheel that makes it look that way.

    Shutter speed in most was between 1/50 to 1/60. ISO between 100-200. Aperture was f5.6 - f11. Experimenting basically to see which combo would yield the better results,

    Next time I won't try with a short prime and instead use the zoom for better isolation.
