Reflections on shot

This girl was moving fast! I decided quickly that in this case, I wanted to show some of that movement, using a not so fast shutter speed, resulted in the blurry motion of her raised hand.

 Motion achieved!

Concerts, always present many challenges, no matter the, person, the camera and even the lenses sometimes cannot be a substitute for a working brain.

In such instances, it is wise to follow a carefully well thought out plan. "Trigger happy" just won't do!

Anyway....away with the seriousness!!!

It's friday! ENjoy!

Nicely done though i think i'd have composed differently. Again i ask, where is the EXIF data?
Mr Skee: hmmm.....you didnt even check!
Errr...Stan, just above the Comments title is the EXIF data. Click on camera settings you see it all there.

Skee...great shot...though I'm not a great fan of motion blurrs on subjects waving. Though it couldn't be avoided in your case. I guess they can be used to show movement but I'm not a fan of it.

Nicely done but only just!
Mr Skee: There will always be a difference between an artist and a photographer smile

Total sharpeness is relative, but the question is, "is it always necessary to totally freeze motion". I think not smile

Okay apologies, but please change the font color or link position!
Mr Skee: smile
Oh I give up trying to shoot pics at concerts. First of all the security isn't usually happy with me, so I have to be sneaky and then the lighting plays havock. I never get this close though!
Mr Skee: lol Most times i'm there officially, so I have the oppertunity of going anyway I please, it's so muuch fun being able to jump around on stage.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Woah! Great shot! I really like the pose and colours in this one. The motion of the hand really does it for me - gives a sense of the action.
Mr Skee: Thanks, because i'm allowed to go on stage at most events... it helps alot ;-)

Mr Skee in positive Shh mode? What is going on here? You know what, me likey this shot, The colours actually work for it and the motion blur actually conveys to the viewer the action/movements in the shot.

Concerts do throw up some challenges, capturing the vibrant(yet not there) colours is not the easiest thing to do. Well done on capturing it here.
Great colours. A very nice action and night shot.
You've managed to capture the energy of her movements, with the blurred hand and her hair flying in her face.. Great colours too, wonderful shot!
