One of you might still win outright yet Andy. Still 11 minutes left to cast votes.
Later - yes that`s a joint win unless determined otherwise by whoever. The third joint win in the last 5 weeks. Probably caused by relatively low voting numbers and a spread of good entries.
Nice to see such a spread of votes for everyone`s attempts to capture motion this weekend.
Well done Andy and Bob for 2 fine shots.
Above and below reviews by me:
Flake - Ghost of Christmas...
Brave attempt to get a time lapse in one image but just did not work at all for me. I can see the change from the stick in the middle to branches on in the fake tree but there are other distractions like door edge, picture frame, radiator etc that are too distracting for me though I see you are trying to show them maybe as constants? Anyway - really hard to do without video as you said in chat thread but you had a go.
Chriscraft - Ghost Fish
Couldn`t click to a bigger picture so based on the shot here.I`m sure it`s just your attempt at showing motion but does that fish tank need a good cleaning out :-). Murky waters disguise the movement but I like the trail from the one on the left which works. Other than that dominated a bit too much by rock for me and the black and white one does not seem to move - must be modelling itself on the Newcastle United defence last season :-)
Liked a lot of the images this week - the real sense of movement in Del`s and Ogga`s got my vote) with the flash technique. Also liked the winners obs and buggslife`s swan and thought Phantom`s cyclist pan would have been a great one if it had not been going oout of the frame and away.
Always love the variety of thought that goes on in this time challenge and just wished my panning attempts at the santa dash had worked better. For Santa Dash read very slow leisurely walk in the main which does not allow for capturing a sense of movement.
