This month’s theme is “Motion Blur”

This month we want to see some movement in your image. You can freeze the athlete and blur the background to show speed or you can show motion blur in the action of the players.

Archive shots are permissible.

The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo.

The winning image will be added to the Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery for the Sports Forum.
The monthly winners will also choose the finalists and the theme for the following month.

We look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!

-- Post up to 5 images but only one image/post
-- Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
-- Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners.
-- When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
-- Include a title in the subject line
-- Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
-- Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
-- WARNING Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice.

Sample image is the winning image from contest with “speed” as the theme in 2009.
