Autumn Colours
This is my, to date, favourite forest photograph - I just panned the lens as I shot to blur everything and the result just gave the colours of Scotland wonderfully. It has an almost tartan type feel to it I think!

Very cool...fantastic earthly effect.  I imagine a very good canvas print.   I have been trying panning a little and not like what you have here.  Handheld or on a loose tripod?   

This is terrific. I think the vertical panning compliments the vertical tree trunks perfectly leaving a smirred look to the grass and tree leaves. As stated above this would make an excellent canvas. It is very reminescent of William Neill's Impressions of Light series. In fact, it so reminds me of his work that I've sent him a link to this image so he can see it for himself.

Great result and I understand why this would be your favourite picture. I have tried this kind of thing too, but not resulting in an image this striking. Experimenting and having multiple go's at trying something out, or using chance to get something extraordinary is one of the things made possible by digital photography. I suppose it was possible in the days of film, but who would spend all the money on film, paper and developer, to get this kind of one in thousand result? And that is without even mentioning the time that would go into taking developing and printing all the attempts.
