Thank you for the response. A few questions.

1. How about the blur on the face? is that ok or can it be avoided?
2. what do u mean by framing it right? I am sorry i did not understand that!!
3. what about the aperture, is it good at f/25??

Thanks

One cannot really guarantee that. To get the best you need to keep shooting. You'll be lucky if you get 2-4 right frames from your 100 shots.

2. what do u mean by framing it right? I am sorry i did not understand that!!
Right frame as in composing your frame right. Subject is inside the frame and not cut.

3. what about the aperture, is it good at f/25??
I suppose you have to keep that kind of aperture in order to get slow shutter speed. You can however, go up to 30/40 kind of speed. Beyond that proper blur won't happen. Most important is to sync your panning speed with the subject. It's a matter of practice. Happy shooting.

deky, was the panning done on a tripod or just hand-held ? I am trying to learn some basics too.

@Shajufx
@Deky
I usually pan hand-held, but as per Samurai's and Rudra's advice, I turn off the VR of my lens, while panning. Like Rudra said, the real secret to panning is practice so that you get the knack of following your subject at the speed of your subject's movement.
Exposure: 1/30
Aperture: f/16.0

TG, that is a nice shot, I was imagining myself doing that, members here would have asked "what the hell is that?" !! I always thought its tough to press the button and pan at the same time. Anyway waiting to experiment. Turning off the VR/IS is very important, the sliding knob which I have never touched till today !

@ shajufx : no tripod used

@TG: Thanks for the tip about turning off the IS. Your pic as usual has come out very well. But with a horse I dont know panning would work as nicely as it has worked with a car.

I say this because car has just one motion that is forward, but the horse with going forward also goes up and down and also the legs dont follow one motion. Do you agree or do you have a different view point on that?

Neverthless I will go and try panning keeping in mind the suggestions from you guys

Thanks

@Shajufx
I got the tip from the gurus. Sometimes you can befriend blur! Results can be quite nice! So just keep experimenting.
@Deky
Yes you have a point, but you can use the blur to your advantage and come out with some insane looking stuff with horses. There is no such rule that everything has to be non blurred all the time. Its all about balance and how the shot turns out in the end. Even a completely blurred out panning shot can have a particular feel to it, that makes the image work. I tried it a while ago with birds, posting the result.

Some informative discussion about panning shots there..!

Pramodkumar's new Alpha A230 mounted with my old Minolta glass. A casual shot taken with my cam and kit lens, while he was fully excited clicking some shots with that lens. The scratch you see to the left of 'Minolta' writing is actually the mark I've put on it before dismantling the lens some weeks back.

Here's how it looks

@TG - Nice blur shots

Here's another blurred shot taken from a moving car.
Also notice the selective blurring happening at the edges because of relative velocities, as being discussed in the auto-image thread.

OT, To be more specific, it's the relative velocity vector that is the reason for more blurring at the edges, because car's velocity vector tends to right angle as the P.O.R. is moved towards the edges, so every pixel at edges shifts more in time compared to the pixels in the center..

Default I counted 100 on top line !

A different shot. Its the number of bees that attracted me to click this. My guess is atleast 5000 of them on both sides. Now imagine the burning process while stealing their 'asset'.
