    My first attempt at panning.
    Taken at the Masters Bike Races several years ago near Lang Lang, Vic. The guy was pedaling against a pretty severe headwind, so I'm not sure that I captured the sense of motion all that well.

    Location:
    Heads Road, Catani.

    Gear:
    Canon 7D
    Sigma 70-200 f2.8

    Settings:
    70mm, f9.0, 1/160th sec, ISO200, Optical Stabilisation on.

    Post Processing:
    Adobe Camera Raw - Lens Correction, Straighten and Crop, slight adjustment to Highlights and Shadow, adjustments to Clarity and Vibrance.
    PS6 - Nik Dfine 2, Smart Sharpen using basic default settings.

    Well done. The panning effect added to the blurring of the spokes does create the feel of movement.

      Thanks Bob. The blurring in the background is a combination of panning, depth of field and the blustery wind. Agreed the blurred spokes do give a sense of motion, if not speed.

      Are you on a PC, or mobile device? I'll look in to it.

      Cheers, Brad.

        What a great photo, you show movement and yet still sharp enough.
        What was the shutter speed?
