    Nice shot! It looks like it's careening around a corner - I wouldn't want to be on it!

    I'm getting the hang of this panning thing now Melissa :) It helps that my subjects go around this corner quite slowly.

    You got a good lock on the front of the bus.

    Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)

    Looks like it eh Kev ?

    Thanks Waikay! I've been playing around with panning recently. This time I locked in a 1/13th exposure and let the camera choose the aperture.

    Thanks Greg :) I was very pleased to see this one pop up on the LCD review.

    Nice one - I like how it turned out.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks David. I used Tv mode. If you get the urge, you should be able to pull of some rippers with the S3 as it has a panning IS mode.

    I just never think of it, David :-)
    It will filter through to my brain someday, I'm sure. Like the b&W ;-p

    I'm sure it'll pop into your head one day and we'll all be suitably impressed :)

    Hey, I like panning too, but yeah it takes a lot of practice. Not only have you got to track it, but you've got to frame it up correctly while it and you are moving. I need to play around a little more with it myself. Anyway, pretty nice.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks - yes, there's definitely a knack. I've only practiced with relatively slow moving things up to now.
