    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    Had a crack at refining my panning skills today down at the local skatepark...


    Camera Settings:

    ISO: 100
    AF Mode: AI Servo
    Lens: 18-55mm Kit Lens

    Question: Should I try and get more of the subject in focus next time? If so, how do I go about it? Feel free to offer suggestions on panning. :)

    ok, first of all, nobody wants to see that guy's underwear. it is the details which can make or break a photo.
    i like the fact that you managed to get a good part of him focused but i would have liked it even more if the bike were more in focus because the guy is really of no interest to me when i look at this. this may also be because me myself am a biker, but still, he sais nothing, he does not have a very interesting expression, so i'd focus on the bike. then, you could try panning from closer or at a slower speed because to me the background isn't as blurry as it should and it is distracting.
    also, the pic doesn't respect the rules of dynamics. they say that a subject in motion must have more space in the direction he's headed than behind him to create the sesation of motion.that about covers it.
