I love this photo first of all because I panned so well. Panning is when you follow a moving subject by twisting the body and clicking the shutter while moving. I intentionally panned to blur the background to look like motion but keep the subject sharp. This technique is difficult to achieve, and considering I was walking along a dusty road in Africa saw him coming, picked up my camera and panned within seconds, I can say it gave a good result. The other reason I love this photo is because it looks like the guy is waving nicely to me. In fact he was yelling some obscenity in Lugandan at me because he didn’t want his picture taken. My Ugandan friends all burst into laughter when they heard what he said. I won’t interpret, you can get the idea. So when I see this photo it makes me laugh all over again like we did walking along that road together, friends, enjoying a beautiful weather in Uganda. Now if there had been something really interesting on the back of his bike, like a giant Nile perch, a live turkey, or a pig, well then I’d have a prizewinning photo. I’m sure if I stood along a roadside in Africa long enough I could have dozen prizewinning photos. It is one interesting place to bring a camera.
