Haven't been around much lately due to computer, work and health problems. But, was really intrigued by this challenge and didn't want to miss it. Will be trying to look at all the ones I've missed.

These were taken a few weeks ago at the local county fair. They were taken in practice for a "motion" challenge we were doing on the Pentax board this month. There has been no color altering done to these. Only cropping and resizing for web.

This first is the carousel in motion.

I love them both. The lines and blurs in the carousel shot add mystique to the shot.

At first, I didn't care for the shallow depth of field in the second. However, the more I looked at it, the more I realized that's what makes the photo good.

Thanks, NotDadsW41 and Cal. The carousel was a lot of fun.

I didn't like this one of the ducks at first either. Have one with more DOF. But, realized the smaller DOF gives you something to focus on rather than be lost in all the duckies glancing all over.
