Challenge #322 - Movement

Movement! We all do it, we move around as we walk, run, drive our cars or rollerblade! Objects move such as clock pendulums, fairground rides or clock fingers!

Try to show me movement, captured in a single shot - this can be real movement (speed, blur) or implied movement where you cleverly use the subject matter to scream out movement!

So, what a fantastic response to this week's challenge - 17 great images, yet all were mostly different in their own way. When people say it's hard being the judge, I truly understand! The hardest thing for me this week was narrowing my choice down to three, there were many more strong contenders.

But, there has to be only three winners and they are shown under my general observations on each shot:

tamato - Moving Water... Sedona, Arizona
Now this I like – being a bit of a sucker for landscape photography I just love the colours and the mood you have created. I can even hear the water babbling over the rocks! A great effort.

Kevan_G9 – tumbling…
This is good – it depicts movement wonderfully and I can almost hear the dominoes falling over! You have used great techniques and the exposure is spot on.

afkenner – The Kiss
I like the mood that ‘the kiss’ creates – the couple appear to be engrossed in their embrace and your blurring technique has done well to knock out most detail without spoiling the mood of the shot.

pwdieter – The Sidewalk Must Be Moving
Firstly, this made me smile…I am sure we have all been there at some stage in our lives, juggling the confusion of involuntary body movement and moving surroundings. Maybe just not a strong enough image this week?

northants nin – Motorway Movement
A lot of photographs showing night-time traffic end up being continuous blurs of red and white lines – that’s all. This is good because it still retains a feel of these being real, fast-moving vehicles. I like the exposure and general light balance.

CarloY - I am still on the Fence (about what to enter) -- but he's not
I really like the sense of movement with the bird here, but am left wanting more detail and identification of the bird. A difficult subject to capture, but if we had been able to clearly see the bird’s head this would have been a strong contender.

audiosteve – 9.8m/sec^2
This is one of my favourite shots of the competition. A picture that shows absolutely no blurring at all, yet screams movement at the same time! Nicely exposed and, to me, a picture that fits the competition theme perfectly.

mrshobden – The Exotic Essex Belly Dancers!!!
This reminds me so much of the school fetes I have been to when my own children were younger. Having been to Essex many times however, I have never been lucky enough to witness this local event!! Some nice strong colours and saturation here.

corythosaurus – Acoustic set
Another of my favourites this week – I like the lack of colour and the graininess – both help create a real mood and ‘texture’ to the photograph. I also wish I could play guitar but that’s another story!

Michael Wells – Prairie Dance
This one has grown on me the more I have looked at it, though I am still left wanting something in the foreground to relieve the flatness. For me, it’s just as though a little something is missing.

Maureen Souza – Up In The Air
I like this – the youngster is clearly having great fun and anticipating the big splash that is moments away! I do wish that the picture was a couple of frames further on and we’d witnessed some of the splash, however, then we may have seen a winner!

gkuenning – Twisted
Hmm, I have to confess to not being able to properly identify what ‘twisted’ is! But maybe that doesn’t matter – the competition was themed on movement and this shouts high-speed movement at me. It’s good.

marie – off the wall music
Wow – our second music-themed entry and very, very good. The player and the passing girl are both moving in their own way, wrapped up in individual thoughts, each too busy to acknowledge the other. As a piece of art, I like this.

Boobo-oobo – w210
The combination of perfect sharpness of the car and blurred movement, appear to give this picture a poster-like appearance. Some great strong colours and I really like the clever reflections in the car window.

vishnu – Windmill dispersing droplets
I am almost feeling wet as I dodge the droplets on this one – lovely techniques and a pin-sharp image..I like it.

Kshootit – Fox Trot
Hmm, I’m a little torn with this one. As a piece of art it is almost second to none – I love the marauding image of the foxes as they ransack the scene, and I get the perceived movement, but maybe it’s just a little too static for my tastes?

BobsYourUncle – 1, 2, 3 JUMP!!
This is good – I can sense the movement (and fun) in the scene right away! I wish the background had been a bit sharper and it would certainly have been a strong contender this week.

So, this week's winners are:

1st Place:audiosteve – 9.8m/sec^2

2nd Place:tamato - Moving Water... Sedona, Arizona

3rd Place:corythosaurus – Acoustic set

A hearty congratulations to this week's winners but well done to everyone - a great response this week and some great images!

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?
