holy smokes, Roz. I thought I got onto Kathryn's blog by mistake. smile
Gone wrong? That's how we get our best stuff, when things get wrong. smile
Just a hint of duck's wing on the right makes the image even more appealing.
Rosalyn Sears: lol! Glad you like it, Viktor. (:o)

I did think of Kathryn when I saw this. I could probably try a hundred times, and not be able to do this again. (:o)

I love this comp, Roz smile
Rosalyn Sears: Thanks, Kay. I am glad you like it. (:o)
Love this Roz, you should have gone to Tesco, they come ready prepared.
Rosalyn Sears: lol! My mistakes are better than my planned shots, Michael. Glad you like it. (:o)
cool speed experiment
Rosalyn Sears: Glad you think so, Chantal. (:o)
A successfull expeximent for me Roz! I like it.
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Richard. Now I just have to work out how to do it again! (:o)
Great result, Roz. As Viktor says, sometimes these are the best shots & something only a camera can capture.
Rosalyn Sears: Hi Dave! Well it wasn`t the shot I was trying to get, but I liked this one much better. Now I only need to work out what I did wrong (or right). (:o)

Excellent - a likey for me
Rosalyn Sears: I`m really glad you like it, Louis. I probably could not do it again if I tried. (:o)
Have been in another galaxy ?

Regarding panning: I think your shutter time was too long for 300mm, unless you move very slowly. Anyway: nice result. Keep on experimenting.
Rosalyn Sears: Over zealous, I think! lol! (:o)

Wooh! Love this, really do.
I like it too, I have often panned faster than the subject at varying degrees, and you do get interesting results. Add some slow sync flash in there toosmile Excellent shot.
Excellent try! I have the feeling you were panning and chasing the duck at the same time :-D
