Speed Machine

By ConnorStowe  
Took this photo just as my dad left the street to take my brother on a bike ride on his pan european. Originally it had just frozen the action but while I was waiting for them to come back so I could have my go I opened up CS5 and played around with motion blur. I know its not the tidiest of photos for example the wheels and the right luggage box have been slightly trimmed or expanded, but I quite like it. This is the first time I have ever tried to add motion blur after taking the shot so I was quite impressed with myself.

Thanks for all yesterdays c&c

I think your experiment has worked well. I particularly like the feeling of movement, and the fact you've captured your brother looking at you! Smile

Great first attempt at adding 'blur', apart from that I like the way you have captured his expression as he looks back.

Nice one, well done.
