Daniel, I really like the effect you created here!

Having the two faces being in focus in the first shot and all else showing motion blur gives a lot of emotion to the image.

The same for the second shot with only the head of the ball carrier and the ball in some degree of focus and all else showing motion blur.

Lou, GW, Rodney

Thanks for taking time to comment. I am trying to fine tune the steps to get more keepers while panning. I think I favor soccer, football and basketball as all I need is to focus on the ball which is close to the subject
