Weekly Challenge Winners weekly challenge #419 - Panning
Posted By: Doctor X, 04-10-2018, 11:34 PM

Although there were just a few submission to this challenge, a few photos stood out and I could pick an obvious winner.

The verdict:

Winner - HAMA. His photo reflects perfectly the assignment. The background is pretty clean and following a speeding sports car at 1/50s is indeed challenging.

Runner-up - StephenHampshire. Beautiful subject, although he could have chosen a slower shutter speed for a more powerful panning effect.

Third - Vaskebjorn's duck. Sharp subject, clean background and a different approach.

A few words about the other submissions:
- jchorst - although the panning is technically correct, the background is very busy and the subject doesn't stand out as it should. Maybe a different point of view would have been a better choice.
- RGlasel - I would have preferred that one of the players be the subject and not the ball.
- BATMON - unfortunately not the best composition, with one wheel getting out of the frame and other in.
- nobody - not panning in my opinion. Camera stands still, the train and people are moving. A different interpretation of speed.
- sealonsf - good intention, but again a busy background and the taxi not so sharp.
- SpecialK - funny!
- noelcmn - good panning, again the busy background but the cyclist stands out. One of the candidates for the podium, but the probable massive crop affects the image resolution.

Congrats to all!

That's a wonderful winning image, you can just sense the movement. Congrats HAMA, worthy winner. And extended to StephenHampshire and Vaskebjorn. Loved this challenge, getting you out of the comfort zone and try something that is not an easy technique. Thanks Doctor X, for the challenge and the judging exercise. Btw, mine was not cropped, a quick unplanned shot, had the camera to hand and saw the passing cyclist and just shot and hoped the AF would be quick enough.

Waiting for StephenHampshire, as HAMA passed him the responsibility to be the judge of the next challenge.

No HAMA, no StephenHampshire, time to pass the baton to Vaskebjorn.
