Once visiting an old village outside Hanoi, I saw a group of kids who were playing at the lake. There are lots of trees surround the lake side, the kids started to show me how they could swim when they saw me taking photos. They jumped from the 3m high trees down into the lake, I luckily could take that wonderful scene.

That's a good panning shot! One of the guys is amazingly sharp. We feel the movement. They seems to enjoy the jump as much I enjoy looking at them! Panning is so fun to do! Good job!

Very well done! You have followed the jumper so perfectly that he is clear. The sense of motion is perfect and the colours are brilliant. This is not easy to accomplish. Congratulations.

I like the blurried vegetation of the back; it gives a special touch. Very good shot!

Very interesting picture Phan, the panning is excellent and the blur just perfect. Have you tried the AF-C mode (continous autofocus) and dynamic as AF zone mode....it will follow your subject even better, although the result is very good here, good work, thanks for sharing.

a GREAT panning shot! Very well done, you not only managed very well to get these boys very sharp (at least the one on the right), but it also transmits the joy of jumping into the water. Very well done!

Je n'arrive pas à comprendre comment le garçon au centre de la photo est net au 1/60 secondes!?En tout cas belle prise de vue.

A wonderful view of these boys jumping. I like the fact that they are almost sharp while the background is blurred - it really focuses attention on the subjects. Also the contrast between their styles is fascinating - one dropping feet first, the other in a ball. An unusual and dramatic picture.

Extraordinary capyure my friend.

Très impressionant, bon travail!
lewiz (1297) 2006-01-06 10:45
Great catch! Panning and catching fast action like this isn't easy (as I found out myself in one of my shots!) but you're done a great job. The blurred background is great -- well done!
