A few from the Boone County (KY) Fair held last week. K20D with DA*16-50 and DA*50-135. ISO 400. Used a monopod for the long exposures (Images #1 & 2).

#1: Ferris Wheel



#2




Trying to get better at panning: of about 25 shots, the following are the only ones I thought were worthwhile keeping.

Your experiment turned out really nice, jelpee. The last one is more than that, it's a real keeper and for the wall!:|

All of those are nice Jay and the panning shots are very impressive.

Your long exposures are wonderful, better than mine were. And your panning shots are lovely, expecially the last one.

Thanks all. Re. the panning, I tried to use some of the suggestions made on this forum to improve the technique. For instance, someone recommended a slower shutter speed (1/20 or so); another recommended starting the pan at 0 degrees and continue through 180 degrees. 2 out of 25 is better than 0 out of 50 (my prior panning attempts at the airport). The mono-pod came in handy as well. Since I have not practiced enough, I'm not sure if I did anything correctly or if I just got lucky:?!

The K20D and the DA*50-135 still continue to thrill me!

Thanks for looking and commenting!

Jay
