    Whew! That's some breakin'!

    You got the perfect shutter speed for these - just enough detail for recognition, but plenty of smearing.
     
  3. Excellent work, Ray! What shutter speed was this, you remember?
     
  4. Thanks Chris! These worked out just the way I wanted!
    Funny you should ask. There was a progression. I initially started out 1/125 sec. from a distance and I thought these are going to look too static. So, I moved in real tight (I was using a 28mm lens) slowed the shutter speed down to 1/30 sec. for the top one and 1/15 sec. for the bottom two and since I was so close just prayed that one of the dancers wouldn't crash into me!:biggrin:
     
  5. Thanks for the info, Ray! Excellent results.

    Great action shots. Love that motion blur.
     
  7. Looks like they brought their own floor. That would definitely be abrasive on that sidewalk.

    It's amazing what 1/15 of a second difference will do.
