Default Playground with my sister :)

taken while she was on the slide
made her go down the slide a couple times
it was bright out so i wasn't able to blur it as much as i would like.....but i think this came out AMAZING!! i REALLY like it
i don't really like taking pictures of people (they don't always cooperate lol) but this one was fun......
i really like the effect this had...how the face and upper body are in focus but the feet and the background isn't.....and the composition is good! (well not for the challenge )
hope you like it

here ya go.....



i used.....

shutter speed- 1/50
arperture- F8.0
ISO-50
Auto White Balance (the easy way out )

enjoy

Very nice shot... I like it too...

Only thing that could make it better would be for her eyes to be looking at the camera...

I love it... especially the vertical panning.... anybody can do horizontal panning..

Hmmm... I kind of like that she is looking down... in antipation of hitting the bottom...

Good photo Vito

I really like the strong composition from all those verticals (the fence, slide rails and slide) with the sharpest part of the image being the head so grabbing attention. She has a lovely smile and I would do just a smidgen of sharpening on the face to bring that smile out a bit more. You have really good technique.

I must be the only one that finds the vertical scanning hard on the eyes. Oh well
