Zoom blur manipulation

This photo was taken when the go-karts were travelling really slowly. I know that panning with a camera is a great skill but I much prefer the definite results on a computer. If you have to follow the object which is moving across the viewfinder then you may end up with an object that is in focus and a background that is blurred but you have to be skillfully and lucky. In fact you couldn't do that with this photo because the objects are travelling towards the camera.

There is an alternative blurring that is caused by using the zoom. Again this is a really skilful manoeuvre and is copied in the photo on the right by manipulating the photo on the computer. For good measure I copied the main colour on the badge and used it to create a border. I think it makes the photo a lot more exciting.

Happy snapping
