Hanoi Old quarter in motion:
Taken early in the morning when the day was still not so bright. I was fascinated by the locals over there and their fast changing pace of life. Something I noticed here is that the road is treated as an extension of the footpath; locals grow up on motor scooters & bikes so they are totally comfortable whether steering or as a passenger & all the road users and everyone understands how the traffic flow works.
Moderate speed of the cyclo at the same pace was a perfect situation to experiment with panning technique just to imply the sense of fluid movement. This has turned out to be the most acceptable out of dozen attempts.
Leaving out instead of entering the frame indeed is not an ideal result that I wanted ....

Hello there! First I thought, well the bicyle should be sharp. But no, it actually can and almost should be unsharp! Looks nice showing fast movement, a busy street. Like it.

J'aime beaucoup l'impression de frénésie de la ville dans cette composition. Longue exposition qui donne un sentiment de vitesse et un flou coloré des plus intéressant.

precious sense of movement you got here. the main personage is sharp while the street and its environment is blurred. very nice result. TFS.

I applause to your creativity to try something different from the mundane shot. Decrease the speed of the camera setting in order to give the impression of movement by following the subject, which is still sharp though the background is blurred. As you say, we don't succeed at the first attempt, but thanks to the digital feature, you can correct instantly the settings and wait for the next scene. I know, the biker should have been better at left, but..... this will be for the next time

Great dynamic effect, in your pictures the life in the streets goes on very fast and you have caught such a fast movement very well

L'effet dynamique est très réussi du tricycle sous le fond flou colorée, magnifique

A difficult shot, almost perfect. We get a splendid idea of the speed of the cyclo with the lovely blurred colours of the vague figures in the background.
boa (7715) 2017-04-19 11:01
a very cool photo technique that gives a perfect impression of high speed. I haven't tried this yet but I will try it later.
Interesting street scene also from busy Hanoi, tfs!
Have a nice evening/

Hi dear Abmdsudi YTH
Great flow shot, reflecting with your high skills.
Very impresive shot, rikisher is half sharp and others are brrow. Very nice Vietnam image shot.
All the best and have a good day! Takero

Superb panning technique. It's fascinating to see the almost haprt figure of the cyclist with the blurred world around him. As for him seemingly "leaving" the frame... rules are there to be broken. :-)
everlasting (15506) 2017-04-19 22:55
always interesting to see such panned shots, and Vietnam is an excellent place to practise.
GyurMaster (7623) 2017-04-20 2:45
You created a very appealing motion-blur by the well-chosen shutter speed. One can really feel how busy those streets are.

Here is another one of your lovely panning jobs! Nicely done!
