Six Word Saturday: An attempt to convey the motion

I mentioned in an earlier post that I had challenged myself with capturing some motion shots during my time in Andalucia – here are a few from Málaga:

In the restaurant


Atarazanas market


Bar at night


Bar in the daytime


Which one works best for you??




  1. I like the first one best (I think) because the movement contrasts strongly with teh very stationery people dressed in green.
    The Taberna del Pintxo is calling me too – partly for the photo, partly because I wish I was there right now!

  2. You’re getting a bit demanding! I suppose you want reasons too. All right. I succumb. The cheese one I think, because of the clarity of the cheeses in front of the movement and because the placement of the three figures shows the busyness of the shop.I also like the ghost-child in the bar because it’s transgressive – or are kids allowed in Spanish bars? And is it a kid?

      Thanks for answering my demand, Meg! I’m getting very self-critical, and the cheese one doesn’t work for me because you can’t see the person he’s serving… Otherwise it’s a reasonable shot! The ghost-child is actually a busy waitress of shorter stature…..

  3. I rather like the last one, with the waiters rushing in different directions. You’ve captured their busyness very well.

  4. I like the third photo best, Susan, because of the perfectly clear photo with a ghost of a presence. Is it real or is it a fleeting thought…
    Guess I have a small mind ROFL 😀

  5. The third one, I like the proportions!

  6. I will be partial here – the “cheesy one”, just because …… 😀

  7. I’m not so keen on the first three – why? Too many distractions in the images. Now the last one is just great, Two figures clearly moving past each other, with just a blur of movement – I do rather like that one.

  8. Really like the first one! Not sure why, just like it a lot.

  9. I like the third shot best, and the first shot comes in second. 🙂 I like it that you got only the subject moving in both, while everything else is quite clear. I love the ghostly look in both. The second is hard to figure out, looks more like a mishap. And while I really like the concept of the last one, the execution could be better. To me the waiters look more blurred than moving. Sorry, too many opinions…

  10. Evocative of late summer bustle indeed. Well done with the isolated blur too. It worked very well from where I am sitting.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  11. I like “Bar at Night”–contrast!

  12. One more vote for the taberna shot – Bar at Night, for the lovely light and tones.
