i was blessed to snag this shot whilst walking around santa monica on a rainy night last weekend. it was shot on 400 speed portra vc on a canon rebel 2000 as my 20d was in the shop for a sensor cleaning. i had my 28-135 is lens on and the settings were 1/4th sec @f5.6.

Majestic example of the technique. Superb, and thank you for sharing.

Really nice to see the reflections in the wet ground - a great example!

Nicely done!!

Shows what panning is all about - had you waited 1/3sec on the trigger, you might have avoided that black blob lower left - but who can see that when panning.

Great image :-)

lah, sure i could have, but i think it ends a merit to the shot. also, if i'd waited another 3rd of a sec i'd have missed it.

Heh b.

to paraphrase an old gunnery sarge I knew: "when in doubt, go full-auto!"

T'was certainly not a criticism - I think the shot is great :-)

Cheers!
