Default Taxis in Times Square

Acapulco's "Mornin' walk" reminded me of zoom shots I made of taxis in Times Square. This is the best shot I made which is still out of focus that I didn't really want to share it.



The other two dozen or so shots I made are all horrible I'm beginning to wonder if a good shot is at all possible.

Great panning-shot this #2 - But you should try to avoid having the taxi 'dead center' of the pic. Maybe, try to crop some of the top and behind the vehicle, too.

Nice shot with fresh colors and grand movement!

Keep trying!

Good shot and excellent pan. The taxi looks so small considering it is the main focus. How about a crop like this as Walter has suggested?

Is it because it does not appear to be moving? I cropped some of the top, back, and bottom.



It does appear to be moving now, but I am somewhat not yet convinced that it's better than the previous one. But that may just be me because I thought I was finally able to catch one dead center -- all of my other taxi shots were off center. Here's an example:



Thanks for the compliments, Walter S -- I actually didn't notice the colorful background until my wife pointed it out .

Oh OK -- I see now the effect. Thanks, Bynx!
