This is another shot, one of my favorites to imply motion, a feeling of movement and velocity. The relatively straight trajectory allows me to predict when to release the shutter and the effect that I want, and I go for 1/4sec. A wonderful slice of life and energy as they add a local flavour to a different way of life.
Image was taken in the late afternoon at Ban Namoung, a charming remote village nestled between Nam Song river and mountain karsts about 20km west of Vang Vieng. I adored the natural beauty and have such fond memories of this fascinating place, a true feeling that I have gone beyond the norm and discovered the uniqueness of Laos.

This is a beautiful artistic image. I like the activity which is enhanced by the slow shutter speed and the panning. In an image like this one does not need detail. It is about colour and movement and impressionism. The girl's pink dress fits extremely well with the rest of the image and accentuates the centre of interest. The figure of the man also is very striking, as is that of the cart, all working together in this fabulous view of daily life. The colour of the FG also is very attractive. Not sure that I would not have cropped a little of the FG off, but it is neither here nor there. I wish I were the artist. Very well done!!!

A very good motion effect with a feeling of dynamism and fun. The pink dress is a great bonus adding some super colour just in the right spot. Lovely work - TFS.
Kind regards, Ann

Hello abmdsudi. What a beautiful and worth seeing photo. Just as it is made, it has artistic quality. I like the photo very much - it has spirit. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Not an easy shot indeed
Panning is always somewhat tricky but the sense of motion is well conveyed here
The image looks like the panning was done when the kids were moving to the left and you moving to the right. Is that true or you were at rest and it's simply an optical effect ?
have a nice evening

the panning effect is excellent, with splendid colors,I particularly like the pink dress of the girl, catching the eyes being the only vivid color.I don't know how you have get this effect, as the movement seems to go in the opposite direction than the children and their carriage.This is superb!
CLODO (30597) 2012-04-30 8:07
A good way to make us feel the movement and you succeeded in your panning. Good try!

Une joli shot en mouvement, j'aime l'effet que tu as donné à ta composition.
Une belle scène de la vie quotidienne!
ciakgiak (30421) 2012-04-30 10:02
da queste foto c'è molto da imparare, perché l'effetto ottenuto è molto bello e rende benissimo il senso della velocità.
Ma è molto bella anche la gestualità del ragazzo che spinge il carretto con la ragazza dall'abito rosa.
Un'immagine complessivamente molto attraente e ben concepita.
Un carissimo abbraccio

excellent demonstration of a well executed panning, very beautiful colors and light, I do not know if the children were playing or if it was to help the family with housework, it is a fascinating snap...
brianmcc (6181) 2012-04-30 11:25
what a wonderful composition with such an instant sense of movement. the effect you have created has worked extremely well.

a wonderful impression of movement which also manages to offer a superbly clear idea of the anbience, the cart, the children, shapes, space, colours. Fleeting movement and fleeting time in a beautiful capture. I love the lighting, the lovely natural colours and atmosphere, the idea of the children having fun, the way the girl is looking at the boy. I also love the title! Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good month,
dkmurphys (50006) 2012-04-30 12:33
Lovely dynamic capture. I like the simple daily life scene in this original presentation. Well done!

Ninello52 (7572) 2012-04-30 14:05
A magnificent achievement! The effect of the beautiful "moved" animating the scene and blends the colors! Really interesting that your interpretation! Bravissimo!
Best regards, Nino.

adramad (38509) 2012-04-30 15:42
A very original and creative image, I think it is difficult to capture this sense of movement, with an image that is pleasing to the eyes.
A picture is well composed and performed magnificently.
Have a nice day.

Hello my dear Abmdsudi YTH
Kerja yang hebat muncur lagi!!
Nice effect of slow shutter speed, which makes very dynamic image. Thanks for your sharing with your best job and have a good day, best regards,
Takero from Tokyo
danos (87439) 2012-05-01 0:26
nice your experimentation with the movements of the objects as this we can see here in front of our screens.I like the excellent presented optical effect as the artistic of the image.
kato (11630) 2012-05-01 1:09
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition, so it's impressive to see an action scene kids in daily life. It is described well as a dynamic effect for the spectacle of the girl who wore the red clothes which rode on the loading platform, and the boy who pushes it. It's interesting in brown ground, too.
Have a nice day.
siamesa (27743) 2012-05-01 2:27
Bom dia Abmdsudi
Excellent photo.This is a superb capture. Perfect composition.
sacimar (25975) 2012-05-01 6:01
I like this image, the visual effect is really impressive, the photographic technique you chose is interesting, well done,
josepmarin (57801) 2012-05-01 10:16
the effect of motion and the sensation of action and of speed are caught perfectly, in a simple, direct and very dynamic composition.
This panning is not an easy capture, but you have done an excellent work.
Waylim (25360) 2012-05-01 18:26
Great shot, I love the sens of motion here and good title, since most children in Laos are not heavy :)
Though people call me fat when I was little because of my baby fat and round face. Only if they can see me now. I use to have fun with this card too, puching my younger brother just to have some fun, since we had no toys. Thanks for the memories.
jhm (139952) 2012-05-02 2:32
Best friend in future have to you try a sharp image alone of the subject and the background blurred, now is it subject also little bit unsharp.
But I like absolutely of this experimental image
Composition and presentation are pleasant. TFS.
Cricri (107236) 2012-05-02 4:32
Un effet de mouvement et de dynamiste bien rendu avec le plaisir ajouter, la robe rose attire le regard, joli moment capturer et bien réaliser
Didi (57250) 2012-05-02 9:41
Very nice try in a low speed.
I feel the movment sensation of the scene.
Very interesting catch.
Silvio1953 (123431) 2012-05-03 8:56
Ciao Abmdudi, great panning of nice scene, fascinating composition with nice movie effect, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
Robert1969 (7104) 2012-05-03 9:49
An artistic image. Some people like this
kind of pictures for other people it's
"to much art". What I like is that you
are creative during the shooting and
not with the pc.
(An famous Dutch Photographer Ruben
Smit(works for magazines like National
Geographic) makes this kind of pictures,
but with another subjects.
Composition and light management are
as always great.
Yiannis84 (2824) 2012-05-03 9:57
I love the sence of movement here! a fascinating motion effect! very dificult capture but soooo effective! the light here is just excellnet..very impressive job, well composed and well seen!
Fis2 (86225) 2012-05-03 16:01
I like this daily life shot.
Good frame and colors.
jusninasirun (17160) 2012-05-03 16:23
Salam my friend.
This shot has the atmosphere coupled with strong visual impact creating the desired mood in the frame. The motion blur is amazing with perfectly frozen area just enough to make the picture beautiful.
Great shot and thanks for sharing.
macjake (57074) 2012-05-05 14:09
wow, great photo.
this is an effect I havn't even come close to perfecting! especially the panning effect.
I like that the subjects are in movement and are blurred.
its a photo i can view for hours!
love the work you have executed.
Graal (97777) 2012-05-07 22:59
fine dynamic scene. Good shot and panning. Well comment and photowork.
Have a nice day.
mkamionka (30694) 2012-05-09 2:23
fantastic capture. It is so dynamic. We can really see the motion. As well the boy seems to be working hard trying to move the whole cart with a heavy load.
Very charming scene, excelent quality work,
nikkitta (14858) 2012-06-29 20:43
How a creative image you obtained, quite full in movement given for the very good management of the camera ( low speed)
A must is the pink color of the dress of the girl, quite eye catching
Good frame TFS
(just bought a Nikon d300, my first Reflex)
RhodieIke (11742) 2014-04-29 21:55
Wow, this is fantastic, spotted in your lovely gallery.
The feeling of movement is super, wonderful colours. Love the boys head peeping behind the girl in the cart.
Well done, Top marks.
Have a nice week ahead,
