I can see why it's a favourite. Superb craftmanship, just the right amount of movement and detail. My only question would be the whitish squares on the right of the image which keep pulling my eyes from the people.

Awesome work Richard I wonder how many with external flash have used the rear curtain function or any of the other functions, they are there for a purpose.

Intelligent, creative technique. I love the way that certain details, certain features are sharp - as often happens with motion blur.
The flash has picked outs ome detail here, well done choosing back curtain it has a great effect and it's worked very well here.

Very cleverly done Richard. If I had attempted this, it would've looked like it was taken from a moving Train on slow exposure Smile

Quote:with an on camera flash, set to second curtain sync,and dialed down to just lift the shadows....

Don't have a clue what this means, Rich, but the end effect is superb!

A very nice sense of movement captured with this - I also like the background which doesn't distract, but enhances the image.
