My dog chasing her ball on the beach.

This was part of a set of photos taken with slow shutter speeds and panning with the subject as I tried to get a shot to enter into a competition for photos of Speed.

I've not done much panning before, but was very pleased with this shot as it was exactly what I was after.

I remember your first version of this and this is a much better so you should be happy with it though I believe it can be worked on. The next step is to use the burst speed function so you take a series of quick shots and try and get that head a little more clearer, the blurred legs are spot on and really convay the speed you were looking for.

The reason I say for the face to be sharper is that it should be the main intrest point in the picture, at the moment the eye is drawn to the small of the dogs back, if however you changed the composition to be simular to the previous shot than the sharpness may be less of an issue as you have backgroud detail. You could try to include a target, what is the dog chasing, I have one somewhere that is slightly out on the dog but has a windsurfer in focus, therefore I got the motion for the dog without it taking away the detail of the shot.

Keep going though mate, the model is obviously willing and you doing some good stuff.
