Rough water made to look smooth

This was a tough one!  It was really hard to find rough water.  We all need to live somewhere more exotic with babbling brooks and rapids I guess.
We hope you enjoy our attempts.

This week we chose a technique called panning.

Panning means using a slow shutter speed and swinging the camera to follow the motion of a moving object.  Because the camera swings at the same speed as the moving object, the moving object appears sharp in the photo.  The background, however, is still so the swinging motion of the lens makes it appear blurry and shows motion.

Car light trails

This week was so much fun.  Its really not that hard to create these pictures and the results are so cool. Of course the big challenge is to not get run over while trying to perch on a highway overpass or side of the road.
We would like to welcome back Keith from his sabbatical.

Smoke is our theme this week and we hope you enjoy it.
We didn't even set off the smoke alarms, but it was trickier than we thought.
