    WOW - that's a fast tram....



    No PP effects - this is a panned shot, SOOTC apart from slight cropping.

    Nice capture!

    For me, every day is a new thing. I approach each project with a new insecurity, almost like the first project I ever did, and I get the sweats. I go in and start working. I'm not sure where I'm going - if I knew where I was going, I wouldn't do it. Frank Gehry

    :thanks

    But handheld panning...does that mean you were following the tram's movement (so the background is blurred)?

    Sure, that's exactly what "panning" or "panned shot" means. Following the subject's motion with the camera at a long shutter speed.

    Some other techniques for deliberately blurred parts of the picture (but all not regarded as "panning"):

    - Blurring a still subject by moving the camera.
    - Holding the camera still and letting the moving subject blur.
    - "Dolly shots", such as taken by a person on the same merry-go-round as the subject, or from one car to another.
    - Zooming through a subject.

    Faking a panned (or otherwise deliberately blurred) shot with PhotoShop or else - but that is is most definitely none of the above and there's neither fun nor the feel of success in it.
