Self-Portrait #2
Next photo >>



Posted on Tue 25th Jul, 2006, 5:29pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/30, Aperture: f/5.6,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: 16:9+,
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM, Focal length: 10mm,
Captured: 23rd July 2006, 8:14pm,

Totally a grab shot, I was walking home and happened to have the camera in my hand when this kid went past. I thought I'd have a stab at panning with his motion and while it didn't turn out how I expected, I still liked it.

On the matter of sharpness (or lack of it), I've tried to think whether this photo would be better if it was pin-sharp and I honestly don't think it would be. In fact, the motion is the whole reason I like it.

The motion blur definately adds to the image, it's as though he's trying to get past the wall before it moves in on him. Nice and I like it.

I like the blur. Looks like he is running fast. =)

Wow! One of my faves. It's like the Matrix (those sunglasses) meets Chariots of Fire. There's nothing in the frame to detract from the focus.

Cracking shot. I really like how the bricks blurr to straight lines at top-left of picture.

This is good, especially seen as tho it was just a sudden photo to take as such...

Nice arty shot. Would have been more to my taste if the wall was stationary and the boy was in motion but very good nonetheless.

Amazing shot. Very arty indeed, and the tones are perfect. Two thumbs up.

Any less blur would've looked like an error, and any more would've been too much, but this worked out to be a wonderful image!

Very good, looks like it's taken from a CCTV camera!
