While touring in Israel we often saw IDF (Israeli Defense Force) soldiers. This soldier had just gotten out of a jeep at a park in northern Israel along with two of his buddies. As he walked along I asked him if I could take his picture and he agreed but he wouldn't stop walking. Being an opportunist I just panned along with him and grabbed this shot - I like the way the background exhibits the motion blur as well as his arm and hand.



Canon 20D, 17-85mm lens @ 59mm, 1/60 second @ f/16, ISO 200
PS: crop at top, curves, USM

man, you've done one thing, that i find most impressive

on this trip, you've asked multiple people if you could take their picture...and that's great!

and, you've done well with your opportunities, great job panning on this one, and nice bit of blur on the hand.

the background is a bit on the distracting side, just because it's got a lot going on, but it's not too bad

well done!

Vito

Thanks, Vito and Frank!

Vito - I am not afraid to ask people. The worst that can happen is that they say no in which case you were no worse off than before you asked them. Sure, there might be some crazies out there that would be unpredictable when you approach them but, heck, that could happen in any circumstance and anywhere. I like the BG motion blur on this one...

Frank - I've never done studio photography like you are expert at doing. I find that I really enjoy unstaged people photography, something that I really only started doing on this trip.

I know what you mean the man/woman on the street who doesn't pose.
Love it myself but don't do it that much .
