Title: Farrier Hammer Motion Blur
Post by: Just Dave on July 12, 2011, 06:38:22 PM
Hi

Chris the farrier came to the farm, where Johns wife keeps her horses today, he was a really interesting guy, anyway I had a go at capturing the motion blur of his hammer, what do you think?

Works for me :tup:

Though, possibly too much blur!

I like it a lot - a fine picture in its own right, and also a good record of how the job is done.

A little too much blur for even me (and I love motion blur). I guess some fill-in flash would've provided a touch more definition

Cheers everyone :tup:

heres another with less hammer blur bonus is it has read hot flying scale, I tried all different speeds 1/40 was OOF, and 1/60 had someones feet in shot

For me the second one has more appeal, and in my opinion very nice compositional shapes and lines to hold the viewers eye.  :tup:
