Spin Me Dizzy
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Spin Me Dizzy
Spin Me Dizzy
I shot this two ways freezing motion and panning circularly in motion. This if the freezing motion shot with added Radial blur. Which worked well with her hair in motion. The panning circular worked ok but not as good as the radial blur in my opinion. f 5.6 Shooting from the top of the swing hanging on while shooting. Quite the challenge. ;)

Ha ha. I love the caption. Very nice coloring and expression. The whole bit is great. I have some similar photos.

And yes, it is hard to take them while hanging onto a swing.
