    This week's challenge is Action. Panning, freeze action, motion blur, subject...use anything you want to represent a feeling of action in your photo, including adding motion blur or camera shake or whatever in post. If anyone wants to get really creative, try some ICM (intentional camera movement). Google that term if you're not familiar with it and check out the images. ICM can be really fun and there are no "rules", just whatever you think looks good.

    Post the photos in this thread. New photos that have been taken for this challenge please. The purpose of the weekly challenge is to get people out shooting and trying new things. If you have old photos in this category that you want to share, you can do so in this thread when the challenge week is over! Thanks!!

    This is perfect, because most of my photos are blurry!
