The topic was Movement with or without Light. We were inspired to some extent by December's traffic pictures for which some of us provided light trails. We found this an interesting topic, and learnt a lot about capturing movement in different ways.

Ann captured the water splashing, using a fast shutter speed.
Athol similarly used a fast shutter speed (1/500sec, f/3.4), having used the Sports setting on his camera. He captured beautifully the movement of this couple, with both feet off the ground!
Bob: another fast speed from the Sports setting (f/4, 1/500sec) achieved the dog in mid jump.
We liked this night-time scene, which we thought was atmospheric and had a variety of light. Again fairly fast at 1/60 sec, with a high ISO - 12800 for night time photography.
Frances: A shot taken from a moving train.
And this effect was obtained by taking a photograph through the windscreen of a moving car.
Frances: This time the camera is still and on a tripod. You can see the movement of the blackbird's head and tail, because the shot was taken with a fairly long exposure time (1/8 sec)
Gillian: Big wheel in Edinburgh at Christms, showing lights and interesting trails. Camera hand-held, exposure time 1 second, and a low ISO value of 80
Ingrid's movement pictures were taken in Canberra, Australia. First, moving flags.
The white lines are painted at the bottom of the pond. The wind caused moving water and distorted the lines.
Irene: Green light in St Andrew's Square
Firework and silhouette, with added vignette
