Lens Artist’s Photo Challenge #212: Speed

How to show speed?
Let’s start with some cars racing, these frozen by a fast shutter speed:

…or these, with some blur to denote speed:

Now let’s look at a woman’s frenzied dancing to a musician’s energetic playing, this time I used quite a slow shutter speed:

And of course, I’ve shown this one of fun loving children before, again more speed shown by using a slow shutter speed:

Kids at play near the sea

And for my final image, a fleeting glimpse as a woman hurries through Blackfriars tunnel:

  1. Those last two images are the most interesting, and really convey movement most eloquently.

    • Sue

      Thanks Margaret, the last image, taken nearly a decade ago is one of my all time favourites, it just worked so well. And I like ‘eloquent’, much appreciated

  2. Well done, Sue. You showed a good range of examples.
    Now I am wondering why a Mini and a Porsche were in the same race. Hardly an equal contest. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I like the photo of the kids playing. Because two of them are almost still, the moving one looks all the faster. Terrific photo!

  4. The fiddler image is just wonderful

  5. Fabulous photos Sue 🙂

  6. Love the kids. Happy Saturday, Sue 🤗💗

  7. Especially loved your closing image Sue – very spooky! And you’ve done a really great job of showing movement in your images with stationary figures mixed with blur. Super!

  8. The car photos are so you 😀 😀

  9. Great action collection, Sue. Wow. Your last shot is stunning!

  10. Sue…you are soooo good at these. I knew you would use that final image. It is one of my absolute favourites of all my favourites from you!
