In this contest I want to see your best photographs using the panning technique, freezing the subject whilst blurring the background. Panning is a photographic technique that combines an appropriate shutter speed with camera motion to create a sense of speed around a moving object. It is a way to keep your subject in focus while blurring your background. Photos can be in colour or black and white and of any subject. In my judging I will be looking for images with great composition, choice of subject and interest.
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
