Putting the SPEED in speedskating by 1pen Putting the SPEED in speedskating by 1pen
:giggle:  So there was a point this past weekend where I got bored, they didn't have the media lights up so it was pretty dark, it was only a quarterfinal, and I decided to slow down the shutter and let the camera "paint".    It's not as sharp or as nice as I'd like, but it made me smile anyway.  I will likely scrap this soon.  :)

I love my job, and I'm very fond of the athletes I work with. All images are ©copyright 1pen and my sports media company.You may NOT use, replicate, manipulate, or modify this image without my permission. All Rights Reserved.

Pan and focus on the front person, and you have a winner!

I do and I thank you, and you know I've admired your work too for a long long time! :) 

I meant it when I said I agreed with your suggestion. When I saw the shot I wished it had been the lead skater that I had been focusing on at that moment, would have made the concept much stronger.

:nod:  When the Group A skaters take the ice, it's like watching someone walk on water.  ...Wait.... Oh nevermind.  ;)

:aww: Thank you, Richard, but I didn't quite nail this one.  Got close, but the subject I wanted tack sharp and in focus is still a little too blurry.  I'll get it next time! :D

Yeah, but I didn't nail it quite right. Got close, but it's a little too much blur on the one skater that needed to be tack sharp. :)

hmm I can see that.  I think I just like how his arms are blurred too and you can sort of tell he's the one who needs to stand out?
Or I'm just addicted to blur, which is probably more likely :confused:
