Here is my daughter, Emily.
It was her second birthday a forthnight ago.

On a Sunday afternoon, she is very busy with her games.
She was just singing for her mother who is washing the dishes.
Then she is hurrying to her playground...

I've panned a little while taking this shot.

PS: At this moment, she is asking me if we can go for a walk :)

A very nice shot Garo, the blur gives the image an action feel, which adds some nice drama and movement to it.
Panning is not easy, you have to do it just right, and at the right speed, but I think you have done a very nice job here, the colours are very deep and seem almost under exposed, which suits this image quite nicely.
Well done, good work.

Garo, this blur is fantastic.. the whole story goes unnecessary, for it is all in the photo;-) great try and a successful one my friend! well done!!

I have a son, two years old also. Your picture captured very very well the spirit of children playing at this age. Impressive light and movement effect.

This picture goes straight in to my theme "photos taht make me smile" :) So cute. The blur is so right here as it enhances the energy that children often has. Especially when they have come up with a new idea, as here, wanting to go for a walk. No time to wait, hurry hurry. Lovely Garo.

Great action picture Garo, excellent of colours too. You did good job!

Garo, this is wonderful. The motion blurr really does convey the atmosphere of little children running in pure enjoyment.

Great use of panning technique. Very well taken.

I think this is a masterpiece, it goes to my favorites

Very very well done and Emily looks great in search of adventures in this shot. Congratulations for the motion.
Ciao Rosana

A great shot Garo. You have captured the essence of a child's dynamic and wobbly world. Lovely bright colours adding greatly to the verve of the picture. Well done..

Garo, wonderful shot, very symbolic, little girl going towards light... your technique is lovely, well suited, i enjoy the play of lights and the motion blur!
