Challenge #47. February 2011 'Speed'
« on: February 02, 2011, 08:02:56 PM »
Challenge #47 for February 2011, 'Speed`is now open.

This months challenge is not about pictures of drugs, or what you may be growing in your basement, as some of you may have expected. :D

No! it is simply about taking photos of anything that involves, or conveys a sense of speed. It could be panning the camera to stop the motion, as shown in my example photo below. Conversely it could be not panning the camera to stop the motion. You could use rear flash sync to provide a sense of motion or simply a photo where you have used a very high shutter speed to stop the motion (please indicate the speed used). Not really as simple as I make out, it could be a very difficult challenge and may require a high measure of imagination.

We want to see what some of you great photogs can come up with and for those just learning to use a camera, here is a chance to show what you are really made of and become an instant celebrity. :D

Speed shown by panning the camera.

Don’t argue with a fool. The spectators can’t tell the difference.
