I took images of the leaders yesterday but then slowed my shutter speed to capture movement in legs.

Cool shots Allan! I've used a similar technique when shooting T&F. I'll be wide enough to capture the whole athlete, and then pan with them as they run. Their head is relatively still, while everything else is moving. It makes for a unique image.

Cool shots everyone! Sometimes I forget to slow the shutter down for these type of photos. I do use slow shutter though when I use flash and rear curtain flash for times I want to get more dramatic flash images.

Yes, they can be interesting when they work.

I did not forget to slow ss but I took many images that I tossed because I wasn't sure what ss I wanted.

Nice stuff, Allan. I have a few of those from races I didn't/couldn't run.
Thanks Nick.


Allan, it's that kind of creativity I miss by myself. I don't know why, but I'm never thinking of this kind of pictures while shooting. Perhaps I'm to much a technician.
I know what you mean Klaus. In this case, however, I was standing in the same spot for more than two hours so I had time to think. :)

Very nice. I also will change it up and drop the shutter speed. While not as slow, here is one I did this last weekend.

iPhone Instagram picture upload, so I’m not sure how it will look on bigger screens.
