    Re: Tight Finish

    Stiletto Race !!!???

    Is there no accounting for humankind's ingenuity (aka madness)?

    That sounds positively dangerous. Do they take out extra 'ankle-breakage' insurance?

    And what about the guy who is blurred? Did he have his on?

    Zoooooooooooooooooom lens

    I cheated on this one (I'm a prolific cheat!) I just moved the zoom lens on a slow exposure.

    ...not sure if this was part of the routine or an "oops they've got ahead of me".........we'll give the benefit of the doubt

    Motion Blur- POST HERE!

    self critique on all my first ever Dance eve images is I was so busy focusing on their faces in the low light, that 1 thing I could have shown more of....was their feet.
    No one else has mentioned it, everyone was happy with the results, as they are novices, but I can see looking at the whole evenings work, that it is something to watch for.

    This is probably cheating; it is photoshop zoom blur but I think zooming with a cheap lens will break it.

    Re: Moving Train

    Yet again, a thread producing highly imaginative and high quality material.

    Shane's Pre Drift, deservedy in my view, won Mini Comp #137. Well done.

    If I may be permitted to single out one of the others (not because the rest are not good), Chriss' Moving Train really grabs my attention ... and I'm still trying to understand why. I think it's something about this monster machine suddenly emerging from behind trees. I'm used to seeing trains behind high fences and on embankments etc. There's just something terribly attractive about this this great machine rolling through the countryside. And, of course, it's beautifully captured.

    Thanks Donald! Honestly from the spot I was standing this was the only chance I could take a shot of this train. Everything else was just covered with trees and I was very lucky that I didn't not mess up this shot.

    hmm...I think it would look much nicer with the pigeon in the back cropped out. that way, all the focus would go on the pigeon in the front. just a suggestion!

    I agree... in fact, I would put the flying pidgeon in the lower or upper left, near the corner (depending on whether the pidgeon is to be seen as rising or descending, respectively). It's not just the rule of thirds here; the instructor of a course I took recently pointed out that moving subjects are usually best seen entering the frame. In his words: "Leave space in the frame for the subject to move into." I think an interesting exception to this rule can be seen in the "Tight Finish" photo above. In this case, the primary subject is leaving the frame... giving the impression that she is, in fact, winning by leaving the frame ahead of the others.

    Totally agree. Thing is I took that a long time ago before I botherd with any cropping or nowt.

    Fixed it now

    Not a lot of room to move there.

    I will have a play with the original when I get home as the one from flickr is 1. Low quality 2. Noisy as hell

    Much better! I probably would have left a bit more below the pidgeon, as the bird appears to be descending. IMO, this is a real improvement, though.
