Weekly Challenge #412 - Motion
Posted By: elpolodiablo, 01-22-2018, 03:05 AM

One thing I found a lot of fun to capture is motion, while I tend to use panning to get the effect I like, I would love to see what others had in mind for motion, so anything goes, show me your creative motion shots!

The Challenge will close at midnight Tuesday January 30th.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

Here are a few examples from my archives:

Little beach wraith

Sorry folks - a disclaimer: I have used this shot before, completely by mistake and it was not a competitive entry, so I am using it again under this week's category of "Movement". Hope it suits the thinking. I was lucky with the low light to get the wet sand in focus and the movement of my young niece running away from the sea. The calm-ish water's edge produced a pleasingly soft effect with the slow shutter speed.

This made me think of a bunch of lawyers heading for the county courthouse. Previously posted.
