Out of Focus..

Or should it be Escort !!?? Was reading a piece about pics and whether OOF is applicable or non acceptable as so many are transfixed on super sharp images, so does this work...? I've looked at it so many times and sometimes really like it (don't know why, then other times think I should bin it)

Re: Out of Focus..

That works for me too. Certainly gives that impression of speed and sporty fun.........

Re: Out of Focus..

It’s a good photo, what would make it better is if one part of the car was sharp e.g. one of one of the headlights, the left hand one is nearly there which is why it works as it does!

All in my opinion of course!

Re: Out of Focus..

I agree it certainly works for me. Great shot. I'd definitely claim that was what I was intending if it was mine

Re: Out of Focus..

Works for me

I never had a Mk1 just a Mk2... lots of rear wheel spin on forestry tracks after I replaced the 1100 with a 1450 (bored out) and then the 1300 when I blew that one up

Regards
Andy

Re: Out of Focus..

I'd have this in preference to something that's been image stacked to death. It's a really nice shot, improved by the lack of focus or possibly the result of low shutter speed in relation to the car's velocity.

Re: Out of Focus..

Somehow I like it too.

I particularly like (as mentioned before) the nearside headlight which is almost in focus and also the windscreen wipers which also seem to be frozen and nearly in focus ... all amongst the rush of speed . A strangely likable shot.

Yes, I agree - it's a shot that definitely has something about it. Great impression of speed and the colours & tones are great.

Re: Out of Focus..

I'd say the blur is almost entirely die to subject movement, rather than focus. It works very well, quite different from many panned track shots where there's less vertical movement.
Well done.
