In your viewfinder, keeping a moving subject in a fixed position can be quite challenging. And when done well, this camera technique (known as panning) creates a beautiful impression of blurry backgrounds, focused subjects, and a sense of speed. These photos capture a variety of scenes that you could use to practice your stabilizing skills and find out what you come up with.

See, and share, more speed pictures in the Blurred Is Best group and Speedy Shots gallery.
