    Intentional blured pictures, C&C welcome






    Shot these two pictures this long weekend at about 20' after sun setting.


    this was my first time try to get something like this, not sure if
    it's too blurry or not enough, I was wondering what shutter speed should
    I use for better result?


    C&C are really appreciated


    7D,300mm 2.8, f3.2 ,1/5, ISO 160, handheld





    7D,300mm 2.8,f 2.8, 1/5, ISO 400, hand held

    They are very cool in an abstract color smears kind of way. I think they look good as they are, but I think the real question is whether this is what you intended (not that great results can't come from something unintended, that happens all the time too).


    If you were going to for a kind of look where it was more apparent that these are motion-blurred birds flying against a sunset lake, then I'd try a slightly fast shutter speed to ge a bit more definition to them.

    I'll have to agree with realityinabox. I think the pictures are interesting--but I think they'd be more effective visually if the viewer could more easily identify the subjects within the frame.

    at about 20' after sun set, there was no way you can freeze a flying
    bird, so when I pressed down the shutter button, I knew I'll get a
    blurred picture, but just don't know how would it look like.

    here is the one shooting with shutter speed of 1/15 of a second






    the shutter speed is faster, the bird looks more effective visually, however it seems less interesting to me because it's more like just a blurred bird shot. I think I should try the shutter speed of 1/10 of a second next time.
