Caught mid action

June 8, 2012

It’s been interesting to see what effects I can get to enhance a moving image.  It wasn’t quite ‘caught’ mid action as this scalextrix train was evidently on the move in the pic (the idea was to freeze the face behind it instead).  But by adding intelligent blur and asking the software to enhance the horizontal lines, the effect of the train is softened to a streak, and given a kind of painted quality.

    That is absolutely AWESOME.. It looks like the train is moving at a very fast pace, might want to back up a little. Very great photography skills = D

      Cool, thanks Kavon. I’ve never worked on just a little bit of a photo before but it creates an interesting effect.

    I agree with Kavon- the effect works really well here especially with the strong horizotnal of motion.

    Let’s go deeper- what does the photo say? What is the story it suggests?
