Hoi An. A great place to sit and watch the world go by. Plenty of corner and outside restaurants, bars and cafes. So much life and color, as well as people to watch.
Panning with a bit of PS for effect...

As I already mentioned this PS effect works wonderfully with panning technique, by strengthening it. The dresses are colurful here, all in all it looks as if it is a studio shot.
Happy new year,

HI dear John, this is a beautiful shot. The lady on the bicycle is in excellent contrast with the blurred BG.
Fantastic colors and sharpness. Very good composition.
Good realization of the world going by...
Happy 2011 ! !

Good panning for a shot that's full of vibrancy.

Just. Fantastic. Panning!
Not only are the cafes nice places to sit, but they also seem to be the best places to try out panning! The mashing of colors behind and the perfectly sharp lady in pink make this a masterpiece!
However, I'm a little surprised to see the pink 'bleed' out into the mashed colors behind. That shouldn't happen with one single exposure. Ah! Post-processing. Should have read the note. All right - it's a terrible photograph now.
I'm joking - this is a truly artistic photograph, and even if you've used good old PS for a bit of touchup, that's fine - the spirit is what matters. And I think you've captured it perfectly.
