    as seen at the Horizons Unlimited Ontario event. Can't wait to edit this photo set. It's going to be a few days as I have a lot going on right now.

    Nice blurry shot more like it. The only redeeming factor being at least the BMW logo is in focus :p

    Nah...photographers play with depth of field and intentionally TRY to get such blurred effects in order to impart a sense of motion while de-emphasizing other aspects such as the rider's face. That looks like an ad for a GSA...the emblem in focus is perfect to that task!

    I thought it was executed exactly per plan and you were proudly showing off your craft -- not posting a photo that you instead think is of poor quality. I guess you just got lucky!

    This is better:

    BTW, I've used that 'effect' a few times but always unintentionally. What causes it in my case is I have a very fast auto focus system, but in wooded cover at a low ISO, I do have to slow the shutter a bit meaning when a target is moving, I focus on the part of their bike closest to me (tire) then track the bike as it gets closer to me physically moving the camera right to left in tandem with the speed of the bike. This blurs the background but in this case, I was afraid of missing the shot so I lowered the f/stop to 4.0 which is the lowest this lens will go and what happened was the middle of the bike was luckily in focus but everything else either blurred from my physical tracking OR the tight depth of field.

    If I was
    -further back
    -used 5/6 fstop
    -boosted ISO

    It probably would have been more in focus at least the bike would have been.

    Funny I remember the ditch that caused the tip over to be 3 feet deep. Must be the camera angle.......lol

    Great Photos.
