    Speed is relative, isn’t it? Fast or slow, take your pick – and your picture!

     

    Have fun!

    Walking home this afternoon, I grabbed a couple of shots.

    My first go at panning with the X100s…

    TIME MARCHES ON—-This “denotes” speed rather than show speed. Anyone know where it is. Left home yesterday to photograph another aspect for the second time-still cannot get it right and will have to go again.  Anyway saw this while there-back home in half hour including taking photo”s–theres a clue so where is it all you locals.????

    Ian’s got two different versions of speed. The first showing plenty of movement with motion blur is very well caught. The red colour adds to the impact for me. On the second there no motion blur, but the movement is implied by the subjects posture.  The diagonal line of the arm give it the speed factor.

    Ken, I would guess the clock is on the market hall?

    My second educated guess would be Wynbunbury Church.???

    I think your stretching it a bit there Ian! I suppose speed is relative.

    This photo was taken in a very dark building so it needed a very slow shutter speed (or flash) to get a correct exposure. It was taken at 1/3 sec at f5.6 with ISO 800. The guy was beating the hell out of a sand mold and I wanted to show his effort so I got the effect I wanted. I appreciate that it’s not to everyone’s taste though.

    Peter >>> Ha-ha! Isn’t creativity all about “stretching it”?! 😉

    I really like your photograph of the mould-maker: it really captures the energy and force. And you did well to keep the camera still enough to get everthing else in the frame pleasantly crisp, including his ‘stabilising’ left arm, which contrasts very effectively with the motion of his right. Very nice effect.

    Oh I really like this Pete,slow motion is always a lovely effect. The unusal angle adds another dimension. I think your right about Ians graveyard scene,pushing the point to the limit.

    Ken I think you have a long long way to go yet,I hope I do as well as you do. Still stand by my thoughts as to “pushing” it a little.
