Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Movement.

Ice skaters at the Wollman Rink in New York City’s Central Park (and a welcome reminder that the city will cool down, eventually…)


Other nice interpretations of “Movement”:

  1. I love the effect of the long exposure; it gives the skaters a sort of grace that would be difficult to capture otherwise.

  6. Great photos illustrating movement. Since I got my video camera, I hardly ever take photos anymore that show movement. If movement is involved, I just take a video, but now I think I will go back to taking still photos of movement.

    • A very good point!

      The interesting challenge is to show movement in a still photo. And, looking at what other bloggers have posted in response, it seems that there are two popular approaches. Both convey the idea of movement through a difference in sharpness between the subject and the background. In one case the background is sharp but the subject is not (long exposure), in the other the subject is sharp but the background is not (pan)…

  9. Great subject for this technique – bright colors against a field of white – the last one could be a painting!

  12. Nice choices for this week’s challenge. I especially like the last one — it looks like a painting. It’s much cooler today in the MidWest, so cooler weather is likely headed your way. And I can’t remember I time when I thought that “cooler” meant 85, but even that is a relief to the 106 we had the other day!
