A villager participates in a bullock cart race at the Kila Raipur rural games, near Ludhiana in the state of Punjab. Kilar Raipur rural sports, popular as the "Rural Olympics", started in 1933 among farmers from adjoining areas to test their corporal endurance. Villagers take part in bullock cark races, tent pegging, Kabbadi and show their unusual skills during the three-day sports meet.

Hello, Anjan. Cool movement effect. Hm never saw photos from this special event, it looks like very interesting. Picture would look like absolutely perfect without stripe in the centre. But in any case interesting and very well done work. Daria

Welcome to TE Anjan, very adventurous and effective first post. Great TE subject, and good for a pan. Maybe not pin sharp, but who could with a sunject like this.
I've added it to a theme, check photo info.

Welcome to TE with wonderful shot!
I like movement! Good job!

This is excellent, dynamic pann shot.Good colours, sufficently sharp and good shutter speed.
I only think that you should leave a little bit more space in direction of movement and less behind a man. That way you can enhance feeling of speed and movement.

A very impressive work by you Anjan. You have started with a nice one in TE. Hope to see more great shots from you.

Superb action photo. You did greatly on capturing the cart race with fair sharpness against the highly blurred background. Very good.
partha (14020) 2006-05-24 23:13
Excellent work of panning. the photograph shows lot of dynamism, the background gives a very good impression of the movement of the cart.
Title is very humorous .

Hi Anjan - welcome to TE, excellent start, I like the mix of humour and cultural interest, it works in both leves, in addition to technique.

sarju (5324) 2006-07-18 19:13
bro, this one is definitely the best panning shot that I have seen on TE.
I would have liked to see the exif data of this photo, only bad thing I can say about this photo is that it seems a bit too overexposed for my tastes
good one to share
cheers .... Sarju
PS: Looking at your gallery, i can see that you have a very good eye for photos ... enjoyed your gallery man ... thanks

I may be a bit late for this comment but pls accept my humble apologies.... Great Image, i have yet to see something as dramatic compared to your image. Great F.Stop & Shutter speed very well captured indeed. What was the the final prize for this 3 day event?

Hi Anjan, this is a great photo. There is so much life and movement here, you've captured the action very well. A pleasing composition of an interesting & unusual subject. Good work! Regards,
neelkaak (458) 2006-09-11 3:33
You have captured the motion so well!...Amazing force and dynamism in this photograph.
pari_ali (433) 2007-01-20 14:06
You've caught the speed and movement beautifully here. This is so interesting they have that here in Pune as well. Bullock cart races, I did want to go but a few locals said that it was a men thing... shame would have been wonderful to photograph
ksvijayb (385) 2007-02-01 10:45
