 To Sterling Lorence with respect: I'm very interested in photography and I am asking myself how that it would be possible for the rear rider to be in motion blur while the one up front would still be clear. Can it be possible without editing one of the riders in? If yes and if not too much asked: how?
  • + 11
 It would be possible by just lowering the shutter speed, since the rider nearer the camera is moving across the frame faster than the one in the distance.

 Looks like a sick trail!

 It looks more like depth of field blur to me. I reckon the photographer used a wide aperture to get a high shutter speed and focused on the front rider - explaining why he is sharp. The side effect is that things towards the front of the frame become out of focus - you can see it in the leaves and northshore in the bottom left corner. If it was motion blur I'd expect to see trails of blur behind the back rider - from experience it looks like he is sharp in terms of shutter but not DoF.

 The comment wasn't with respect to what's in the photo, patate was questioning Sterling Lorence's comment in the photo selection text. I agree with you that what you see in this photo is a narrow DoF giving the blur to the rider nearest the camera.

 It's not motion blur, the closest rider is out of focus... full frame power i suppose! Great shot, great place to ride!
  • + 1
 the focus point or F-stop (Depth of Field) in the frame is set for the farther distance rider, so the closer rider is out of focus. Typically people only see "blur" in a portrait shot to bring the subject into the foreground. All about FStops and shutter speed. Guess it all depends if your intentions are to get motion blur or just a shift in focus.

 yeah most of you got my comment wrong. Like duncanp understood, I,m talking about Sterling Lorence's suggestion to make the picture better. As he suggests that adding motion blur to the rear rider would improve the picture.

 A nice photo, and imagery wise it has the right "spirit" (as in, conveys a nice message/conveys a feeling), however technically, it may be my glasses (LOL), but isn't it a little "noisy"/grainy? ISO too high or something.

I like the image, but something seems off from the tech point Wink

 I ride here alot, and yes this photo makes me want to leave work right now, go home, get my bike and get out there! Just wish I could table like that. Great little park, a ton of trails just like this and they are all approved by the county. Props to Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance for making it happen!

 Great shot! Though I disagree with mr. Lorence about motion blur. I prefer motion blur rather in the background rather than the rider.
