I got bored tonight so I dug up an old pic of a dirt bike racer and tried to make it look like I was panning to show a since of motion. Even though I did not succeed (it looks terrible) here is what I came up with. I like the original myself besides being slightly out of fucus(dang cheap slow lenses).

My horrible result

If you have the time it would be cool to see what you can come up with for motion blur. I would like to see if anybody can actually make it look real.

I would have chosen a shot that would be more conducive to the concept. The subject in the shot wouldn't have much lateral motion in a spatial relation to the camera.

Do it for real, in camera! There is enough fake stuff out there already...

agreed, try a shot where there rider would be moving across the screen and not coming towards you.

Yes I totally agree there is way to much fake stuff already, and I hate not knowing if something was done in post or in camera. There is no way I would actually do this for all of my boring action stopped shots, that would be way to much work when I could just take fractions of a second in camera.
