If you have not had any help from photoshop I'd say you've done a fantastic job in managing to get the head sharp at this speed.

I must confess, I was gobsmacked when I saw the picture, pure luck and a fluke....no photoshop here....I use Corel anyway, but all I did was play with contrast and colours... Jonathan

I wrote you a private mail with the details. Of what you have done without knowing it Smile The famous panning technique.

When shooting movement with slow shutter speeds (1/30 sec for example) on shutter speed priority (Tv for Canon) I normally use the middle focus point. But it will end up with the subject completely in the centre so it can be a wise idea to leave some room to crop the picture later. In this case the "right" answer is to have lot of space in front of the dog and not behind it. Because we want to see what the person or dog is looking towards.

so you have too much space behind him that in theory should be in front of him. Well in theory. I think it works okay here with the space behind him and maybe you could even accentuate that he is leaving the picture and crop a bit more on the left. To break the composition rules I think one has to know them first so it is visible to an experienced photographer that you are breaking one on purpose Smile

The white stripes shows your direction when moving btw. So of the dog is moving straight, they should be straight. I have tried to follow jumping skateboarders but without success so far.

As for v2 I think you have overcooked it a bit so I actually prefer v1.

Remember to always click "Allow modifications" when you upload a picture. I played around in photoshop but afterwards I realised itis not possible to upload my suggestion. :-(

Cracking good shot. V1 for me. Ellie is right about the composition - if you crop the left side in so that the dog is squarely framed on the left - leaving the other sides alone - it works better. If you do upload a new version, it might be worth trying a b&w as well as I have a suspicion that it would work really well.
