Still on street photography in Songpan ancient walled town, panning shot taken on a slight overcast late afternoon. What a better way to enjoy the small place by taking a leisurely joy ride on a traditional yellow & green three-wheeler - the main form of public transport here. What a statement regarding our modern age! a bygone way of doing things but no need to wear ear muffs because of noisy engines, and great that these wonderful workhorses still doing what they know the best. There are dozens of them operating all over town, in and out of the walls. It costs only fractions of a dollar.
Stationed across the road just outside the wall with monopod mounted, I wanted to catch the dynamics at that time as the rider was probably rushing for passengers and there's a certain sense of urgency. This is just a choreography, it's real life a moment in time as we see it when frozen with just the right amount of motion blur, of course the First Law of Motion Blur applies.
Another second would have been too late....
WS: Three-wheelers out side the main entrance of the ancient ten-metre-high city wall, but the light wasn't great

un panning realizzato con perizia e perfettamente riuscito.
Di particolare rilievo la bellezza del soggetto ed i colori che lo caratterizzano.
Ciao e buona giornata

I like how you captured movement and speed. The cyclist is colorfully dressed and it creates good point of interest in the whole blurred image.
Good composition and well placed main element of the photo.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day

I like this road snapshot, very simple but effective. The panning is excellent. Very well done.

J'aime beaucoup le flou qui donne une belle impression de vitesse à cette composition. Je trouve que le conducteur n'apporte pas beaucoup d'importance à l'idée de regarder devant.

I know I've mentioned before how much I learn from and appreciate your portraiture but motion blur is another area I would like to someday master too and this is a shining example. The level of blur gives the impression that the man is traveling at incredible speed and ours funny that he looking behind him for this capture. As always the Off center composition works perfectly giving a great amount of space for him to drive into
thanks as always

This picture is well capturing the movements of this vehicle. The blurred background looks good here. Also an interesting complementary picture and note.

nice the snapshot from the passing by traditional three-wheeler vehicle in from of your lens in a biti blur mode.I like the creative effective as the way of the presentation.Well done.
rychem (37343) 2014-02-04 9:09
Nice shot, great idea to take the moving rickshaw with blurred BG, well done
ourania (47092) 2014-02-04 9:28
it's very interesting to see the three-wheeler and its driver in action, the sense of movement conveyed by your photo is most enjoyable. Details and colours stand out superbly, the ambiance is fascinatingly blurry and sufficiently comprehensible. I like how you handled the homogeneous lighting that allows us to see through the blurry movement. The workshop picture is very good, despite the difficult lighting. The daily life setting it presents is exotic and full of information. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Interesting dynamic result, well managed your panning, Good result also with these vivid colors.

what a great sense of motion here! Looking at your picture I feel like this man should be fined for speeding:)) Very nice bright color accents too, makes it even more eye-catching. Great job done.
Thanks and best wishes!

Great colors and wonderful panning job. The light may not have been perfect for the WS photo, but you made the best of it. The yellow tricycles are adorable I that photo.

A good example of how to tranform a mundane street scene into a stunning and appealing picture, giving the sense of motion. Though the ricksaw is not frozen, we can detail its pure colors bursting out of the grey background, well off centered to give place in front of it.
Subhogen (4067) 2014-02-05 3:23
Great effect created by panning to make the rickshaw look like it is moving at F1 speed!! I wonder what is he trying to do looking back, that too moving at such speed. I like the fact that you have shown enough details on the vehicle for the viewer to enjoy its colourful details. Very well done, thanks for sharing.

I had missed such shots. as always, this one is also effective and full of senses of far east.
Cricri (120491) 2014-02-05 10:31
Un flou qui donne une belle impression de dynamique de ce véhicule a trois roues, très colorées, belle réalisation
mkamionka (37795) 2014-02-05 14:03
very impressive capture. I remember you have a whole series of similar shots in various circumstances. I have to try to do something like that someday but we have no interesting means of transport around so I have to be creative. Great dynamic shot with nice colors which add to the interesting mood.
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-02-05 22:02
Love this motion blur in this transport photo, the wheels especially look good and great colours blue red yellow and green wonderful.
Well managed and presented.
claudeD (39623) 2014-02-06 0:33
very fine action picture from China. Your choice to realize an unsharp picture gives here really the inpression of speed and action. Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
adramad (46476) 2014-02-06 6:59
A magnificent composition with this curious type of transport, which gives a nice touch of color with these tarps covering lateral and rear image is well appreciated the feeling of movement, with an original visual effect.
Good lighting and sharpness.
Have a good afternoon.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-02-06 15:19
Great way of capturing movement through panning and obtaining that way a blured BG
You obtained a very personal and creative , not to say plenty of mouvement, capture
About the vehicule, now with the economical crisis I saw and take similar ones in London, Paris, New York, Berlin, MUnich , Mexique
It s said they are (quite true)environmentally friendly
Very well done
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-02-06 23:40
never tried this kind of shots and effect,but you were able to capturea dn convey perfectly dynamic and lively character of this scene.The motion is shown excellently here(I´ll have to try how to achieve such effect)
amaryllis (37039) 2014-02-10 6:03
une superbe photo en mouvement de ce vélo transport aux couleurs jaune et vert, l'effet rendu est superbe
merci de ce partage
Didi (60588) 2014-02-10 9:09
Not a static composition
Interesting movement sensation
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-03-13 3:27
low speed vehicles are always tough to capture with panning art, but you did well here to capture its motion with a nicely blurred background. Excellent light and colours too. Nice work. Tfs.
Morac (27723) 2014-09-12 11:08
A very interesting rickshaw.
Good frame and colors.
Excellent the effect of motion.
