NOt sure if this works but tried this pan of a Kudu female running away from the vehicle, not sure if it works or not?

Hi Craig, iam afraid this shot doesn't work for me. The whole picture has come out very blurred and flat, for a panning shot to work effectively it must convey the impression of motion this is typically achieved by freezing the subject in motion and achieving a blurred background moving in the opposite direction, if the subject is a fast moving one like this one here, you would need a fast shutter speed to accomplish this and ideally its preferred that the camera be mounted on a tripod to achieve stability on one plane while moving in the other, would also suggest that you post your camera settings here so that it becomes easier to understand the image and how it was produced Smile

Cheers and hope this helps

A little too blurry for me. It does however look a little like an abstract wall painting, so it might have some potential if looked at from this perspective.

I will take a look at doing a mod.

Loaded a mod to emulate an old cave painting.

Panning is a very difficult technique to get right and I'm afraid this doesn't work for me, either. Everything's very blurred and everything's essentially the same shade. Increasing the contrast would help to separate the tones a bit, which might give a better result.

For the original shot, I think a faster shutter would have helped, as it would have made it easier to keep the kudu sharper and also retained more texture in the background.

Willie's cave-painting mods are wonderfully imaginative.

There's nothing I can say. Just too far gone for me.
