[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A wet and drizzly afternoon in downtown Bukittinggi, experimenting with panning. It was a fun day out and lots to learn watching the beautiful horse carriage run by! Only down side was the lighting a bit low and this is the most reasonable result I've got using zonal focus helped by a monopod.

I let this shot speak to you....

Setting: 30 mm, 1/15 sec, F18, ISO Raw 100, 1506 hrs

Good panning shot, Abmsudi. I like the movement blur and the strong colours.


Hello, Abmdsudi!

I used to like to make pannings, but it's been a long time since my last photos like that. This is a great panning on this carriage, and the reflections on the wet ground make the scene even more interesting and beautiful! Very nice job!

Hi Abmdsudi,
At 1/15s exposure it is very hard to get such view sharp, and you succeeded. The cart with big red wheels is quite special. Your timing is perfect with all the feet of the horse in the air. Reflections on the wet road add their own charm.

It looks like a race between a carriage and a car, and the horse seems not to be slower :)
a very nice shot with blurred BG

Hello, Abmdsudi!

I hope you got out to the big white mosque and the Miningkabau palace. Both were worth seeing and are easy day trips from Bukittingi. Good panning here, which freezes most of the speeding horse. The motion blur enhances the effect. Tfs!

Ciao Abmdsudi
oltre alla dinamicità della scena, ci sono quei dettagli rossi che la rendono molto più attraente.
Bel colpo, bella foto.

The bad weather is a friend when you want to try a panning shot, it allows you to use a low shutter speed in order to get streaks of colors for the background whereas the main subject is sharper, giving the feeling of movement, the impression of speed.
Well thought and realised!
