    They all worked Luka, but I liked the third one best.

    I'm not sure why you would want to do it though - other than that you can . . . . :)

    Not a bad attempt Luka. I like the third one best because it has central interest. Think about fine-tuning your images to get the best from them. A few quick adjustments to your third shot gave me this which I feel is a lot stronger.

    Yep the third one is the best. The first one has a definate impact though, in an almost abstract way :cool:

    Hello Luka, as yourself, I like the most the first one. Theoretically, as I know, if you focus on a subject and then zoom the subject will remain in focus. Therefore, the focused subject is the least blurred. In theory it could be sharp, but I guess that this may be difficult to achieve in practice, the reason being that in order to see the effect you have to choose relatively slow shutter speed, I guess, what in turn would mean blur by camera shake.

    Personally I like David's treatment of number 3. But isn't it just easier to use the radial blur / zoom function in PS on a clean shot?





    Maybe the effect is subtly different ... but given that such an effect is always going to be just that, an effect, it seems that doing the processing in post gives you the option of much more control.

    Morning Luka,

    Like you and Robert, I find the first (1st) pic more effective but I do find the third(3rd) subject much more pleasing to look at :).

    Cheers and Well done.

    Hi Robert...
    Yes you're right, it's difficult to get a main subject sharp, but I think with a lot of practice it can be done...
    All shots was taken wit 1/30sec. exposure

    Hello Roger....
    The effects that you have done is much better, becouse the main subject is sharp....
    To me it's not just to achieve a great effect, to me is to hold my camera and have a great fun with it , and personally I can't have that sitting in my room.....but like David sad I have to work on final touch.....
