Good contrasts in this, Dennis: size, speed, colour. The red at the bottom of the frame really focuses attention on the little boat.August 8, 2013 at 8:11 am #4777
Thanks for the comments Ian, we had a day out in Liverpool on Tuesday to see the Queen Elizabeth, the shot presented itself with time to get set up but a usual it was a dull day and the sun was behind cloud.
I liked both your little red car (bright and cheery) I also think your take on the graveyard was quite clever (liked it).
I also liked Pete’s shot, I can really imagine being there and hearing the man pounding with his fist.August 8, 2013 at 7:59 pm #4779
I though I’d put a comment on earlier, but perhaps I forgot to click ‘submit’! Anyway many thanks for your comments on my photo folks. I was able to brase my arms on a shelf like a tripod to hold the camera still to keep the background sharp. I had to take half a dozen to get one sharp though.
I like your shot of the boats Dennis. The contrast between little and large grips my interest and I compare the shapes of the two boats. Like Ian says the red in the picture brings it to life.August 8, 2013 at 9:07 pm #4780August 8, 2013 at 9:39 pm #4781
Those pictures certainly give an impression of speed Ian. Particularly the two with the diagonal angle of which I think the red lorry is the strongest. It has the car competing with the lorry and is moving into the empty foreground space. Can you tell your shutter speed please? (How about trying some light trails of this scene after dark?)August 8, 2013 at 11:00 pm #4782
Peter >>> They’re all f/16 and ISO 200. The first two are 1/30 sec and the last one (the red lorry) is 1/15 sec.
(The first one is a panning shot; for the others the camera was stationary.)August 13, 2013 at 7:41 pm #4788
After my saturday afternoon visit to the Chelford Traction Engine Festival I took these 4 speed pictures:

Peter >>> Gotta love the mad motor bike race in the second shot!August 14, 2013 at 10:29 am #4798
Must admit Pete Nos.2&4 are my favourites.Sheer fun by old and young alike,now thats something!!August 16, 2013 at 5:15 pm #4803
As the weather was rather warm the fan was on and I thought that’s going at quite a speed.

It certainly shows the movement of the fan against a non distracting black background, Dennis. The blurry red bits help the action, but I think it needs a bit more contrast to give it more impact.August 25, 2013 at 7:18 pm #4810
I have struggled this month, but … this guy was going about a mile an hour so I will risk it just to take part! 😉 I haven’t thought of a title yet.August 26, 2013 at 7:20 am #4811
Nice one, Dee! He’s clearly making a very stately progress, and likely to be overtaken by the soldier on foot behind him!August 26, 2013 at 9:36 am #4813
WELL how about calling it THE DON–R. thats what we called them when I was a soldier-meaning –Dispatch Rider.August 26, 2013 at 8:05 pm #4814
Excellent … I like The Dispatch Rider ken! I wouldn’t want the judge should I one day enter it into a comp’, to stand there trying to work out what The Don-R stood for as I wouldn’t have known myself. Thanks for the comments Ian. Does anyone think I should blur the soldier behind his head a little? 🙂
