Another Panning Example With the Leica M9

Bike Taxi, New Orleans, by Reed A. George
Leica M9, Summilux 50mm f1.4
iso 800, 1/15 sec.
As in yesterday's post, I used the panning technique to show a moving subject at night.
In this case, I didn't match the camera motion to the subject's speed as well as I did in the shot posted yesterday. However, this picture says more about being in New Orleans. Motorcycles can be seen virtually anywhere; bike taxis are less common. But, there are plenty of them in New Orleans.
So, as a travel photo in which I wantedd to say something about the place, this one works better.
