    July 4th scooter

    Hi:

    Was taking parade pictures and this seemed to stand out amongst the rest.
    Any critiques or criticisms gratiously accepted.

    Hi Tim,

    You may find these useful to get quicker, better fedback;
    HELP THREAD: How can I post images here?
    How to Get Effective Feedback for your Posted Images

    Without the EXIF data, we don't know your camera, settings, skill level, etc. and we'd not wish to offend by making an incorrect assumption, hence all the ideas in the second thread linked above. It also helps if we can see it bigger. There is help on that in the first thread above - although I have fixed it this time.


    Also, could you do me a favour please?
    Could you click Settings (right at the top), then Edit Profile (on left) and put your first name in the Real Name field and where you are (roughly) in the Location field? - thanks.

    Welcome to the CiC forums from ...

    Hi Dave:

    Thank you for your advise.
    Exif for photo is:

    Canon EOS 60D
    Exp time: 1/250
    Shuttr Spd: 1/256
    Manual Mode
    ISO 200
    Focal Length 55
    No flash

    Was with one of my daughters and her children taking in the 4th of July neighborhood parade and this guy on this scooter was handing out candy and I took three of four shots of him and this seemed to turn out the best.

    I have done no post editing work on this image.

    This is my first time posting an image anywhere and all advise and/or critiques are welcome.

    Thanks

    Tim

    I like the larger version, I kept bumping my nose on the monitor viewing the smaller version.

    Were you using a panning motion or holding the camera stationary? Was it your intent to get the crowd in focus?

    Hi:

    Was using the 18-55 mm lens at f5.6. At the time I was focusing on him and i think i can blur the crowd? that may improve it? I still have a raw version of this picture.
    Thanks for the response?

    Hi:

    I applied some blurring and cropped out part of the crowd. I think it does improve the image. Do you agree?

    Thanks
