    ImA1032 - Cool picture. It definitely fits the subject. You mention there's no Nascar for a while, but what I think would be really cool along the same lines is to find some kind of race and really challenge your camera to emphasize how fast the cars are going. In your picture, I notice the crowd seems to be fairly tame, but if there were a way to use just the right shutter speed so you could freeze the crowd in action (cheering, arms flailing, etc) and yet still retain the blur of the cars the results would be cool. I'm sure what I'm picturing in my head would require being dangerously close to the track, but it's just an idea I get from your picture. Good job, I hope to see more before this challenge ends.

    ianmonsta - Awesome shots. Your bands photos remind me of how angry it makes me that venues still don't allow cameras inside, especially considering that I saw Bad Religion at the House of Blues during this particular challenge...

    The snowboard shot is a perfect example of capturing motion with no blur whatsoever, and implies motion both before and after the moment (if that makes sense). Great job!

    \_==oIxxI - Automatic bonus points for hockey pics!

    Are you in the 300 level when taking these? I'm always a fan of your picture posts, and I really like the implied motion of the spray coming up from JMFJ's skate and Ivanans' fist moving McGrattan's head I look forward to seeing some more

    PuckMonkey - Uning believable!

    I don't even know how to pick a favorite. In "Breakfast of Champions" you captured the idea of motion perfectly. Any amount of blur and it would lose its effectiveness, and the only thing missing from "Page 29..." is a hobbit. Prime example of motion giving a sort of surreal feeling.

    Also as a side note, "Army of Me" captures perfectly one idea I had for this thread. I was considering trying something similar, though by way a strobe light as opposed to your shutter technique, but at this point that's way beyond my abilities... hopefully someday.

    ValleyFan - I really like the composition of your shot, I find myself wondering what's depicted on the map and what kind of work is being done. Are those surveying tools, as in measuring how the land moves over time? Or is the time element more directly related to the watch? Or both?

    Based on the subtitle of your photo, it's easily understood why you don't have any more pictures up yet... maybe there's a little too much movement going on for you to worry about this photo challenge? Congratulations!

    HeShootsNScores - lol Somebody had to post the time exposure traffic. Is that Route 66/Alosta in Azusa? Clever use of "motion" in relation to McDonalds.

    I like "(He is) EN FUEGO" the best and how the fire seems to almost appear out of control.

    Side note: Does anyone else see a creepy screaming alien face in the fire?





    (more to come)

    Thought so. I recognize that McDonalds down that little side street too now that I look at it. I was the manager of that discount theater over on Route 66/Citrus a few years back, and you wouldn't need a time exposure to get that trail effect from my car... I couldn't get away from that place fast enough on most days

    Ah yes... what used be the $3 theater... and was a $5 theater last time I went. They are re-doing that whole shopping center. One of my best friends lives in the apartment complex down the sidestreet where McDonalds is... I was waiting for him to show up to open the gate for me when I took those shots.... hence the lack of equipment.

    Sorry I couldn't give your theme the attention it deserves, Watti. It was a cool idea too, just not much time to shoot lately. Some great stuff by you all though--with PuckMonkey taking his usual position at the top of the heap. All excellent PM, but LOVE Army of Me. Really well done image.

    BabyFan was born 10:52am Saturday, so yes I have been happily distracted (and tired)

    The drawing was a staging plan, and in itself could have symbolized movement, as that was about the 20th revision (so should have shot on a area with revision bubbles so you got that sense of movement) but really it was just me feeling like I wasn't going to have enough time to finish that job before the baby came. One of the saddest things about that shot for me is that when I posted it, looking at the picture on the web I noticed an error in one of the contour lines that had gone unnoticed up to that point (which meant more work) There is one in the photo that is labeled as 5'-0" and 5'-6", D'oh!

    Not much, but I wanted to get something in here. I've been working four-day trips lately. That combined with learning two new cameras had my tank of creative juices running on empty. Sorry I wasn't more involved with this one.

    I'll throw some critiques up later today or tomorrow.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    I've added a couple more, and I think I'm done. This was a fun one, and try as though I might, I ended up falling back on the cliche water shots. I just didn't have any time to work out anything more exciting.

    I definitely want to throw some critique down in the next day or so. I'd request that this thread stay sticky for a while since it seems like people've gotten busy and haven't had a chance to comment.

    Either way, it's been a fun one.

    I was a regular at LB Ice Dogs games and because of the low lighting I was usually unable to take anything at a really high shutter speed. Consequently, I would sometimes do the opposite and shoot with a really slow shutter speed. Here are some pics from their last two seasons (as a first time entrant I'm not sure if pictures taken before the start of this conest are allowed, but I thought I would throw them in any way):


    1/6 sec, f/13, ISO 100


    1/5 sec, f/20, ISO 200


    1 sec, f/18, ISO 250


    1/40 sec, f/2.8, ISO 400


    1/15 sec, f/13, ISO 200


    1/20 sec, f/13, ISO 200


    1/10 sec, f/10, ISO 100
    Personally, this is one of my favorites. It's abstract, but has just enough detail to hint at it being a hockey game.
