    Well, I quite like 1, 4 and 5 ... the last two don't speak to me that much, neither of them. Sorry.

    The better of the last two is the lst one since it has no motion blur, but the composition is unbalenced and lacks a main focal subject.

    Of all the others I like #1 with the light shining through the dress. The motion blur isn't so obvious in this one like it is in the others.

    Were you using a telephoto lens? If you get to re-shoot at some time try using a fast (f2.8) wider lens (28mm?) This will enable you to use a faster shutter speed and the wider lens will help to reduce the blur.

    What was your ISO and apperture in these shots?

    I like #4 because of the near symmetry and the lack of motion blur.

    Thanks for all your suggestions.

    The camera is Lumix FZ 7. I can only go down as low as FZ 2.8. ISO I think it was 100. Now I come to believe my fault was more to do with the mismatching shutter speed. I didn't adjust promptly and just kept Simple Mode setting.

    I'm still not acquainted well enough with my Lumix camera, so I need to practise more.

    PlasticSpanner, I recut the second last photo, hope now it looks more balanced.
