Speed: Weekly Photography Challenge

Speed: Weekly Photography Challenge

0Comments

This week your photographic challenge is to take and share an image on the theme of ‘Speed’.

Gumball 3000

Feel free to interpret the theme in any way that you wish.

Once you’ve taken and selected the ‘Speed’ image that you’d like to share – upload it to your favourite photo sharing site or blog and either share a link to it or – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSSPEED to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks challenge – Best Friend challenge where there were some great shots submitted.

    A picture of The US Air Force Honor Guard performing in the final rehearsal for the Norwegian Military Tattoo 10. of May in Oslo. Look at the speed the rifles are spinning. They gave an impressive performance.

    I love the Gumball Rally photos!!!

    I am a full neophyte, but I spent the weekend at Watkin's Glen watching the sports cars qualify and race in the 6 hours at the Glen. I took a lot of pics, but this ine that caught my eye, simply because of the subject blurring. Strange how the photos I really try to get right do not stand out from the ones that are not perfect.

    This is a picture of an air show in which an f18 came close to the speed of sound. I was able to capture the transonic vapor coming off the aircraft.[eimg url='http://bit.ly/MGDh4X' title='MGDh4X']

    Speed is relative. It's not always how fast you get somewhere, but how you actually get there. It took Ben 30 minutes to do 300 meters with ~80,000 people willing him on.
    It was a sight I will never forget. Ben Parkinson is the real inspiration of the Olympic Flame route through the UK.
