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. ;)
