    OK, so recently I have been messing about with motion blurring effects such as these below. So for this week, the challenge is to blur some motion. Either motion blurring, panning to track a movement or anything added in post. Get your blur on people.

    The rules are still the same.


    · The photographs must be your own work.

    · Be creative and have fun.

    · You may only submit one photo per contest.

    · Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.

    · The contest runs for one week, starting NOW!

    · At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.

    · If the Judge is unable to complete the selection within 48 hours of the deadline for close, then a vote will be carried out to select a winner. This will be based on the number of "likes" each image has. In the event of a draw, the second place winner from the previous week will choose the tiebreaker.

    · The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).

    · Winners please update the Weekly Photo Contest Master thread

    The ISS (containing Tim Peake et al.) passing over rural Dorset a few Christmas ago! Hope this isn't too far from the topic ;)

    It was an amazing stroke of luck to get this at exactly the right moment.

    I took this ages ago but the entries here have convinced me to add it as an entry here. Really incredible entries so far.

    I almost threw this shot away. I was trying to pan left and capture the dog running by as the sun was setting. Turned out to be an interesting shot after all.

    EDIT: I had to switch out the photo as I just realized I had submitted during a different contest week. Not sure if that's allowed.

    The American cable cars use cables underneath not overhead. If you look at the tracks there is a third "rail" which the cable runs in and the car grips the cable to get propulsion - I think....
