The challenge was motion. ICK! I did not like ANY of my pictures (although hers came out amazing so be sure to see them!!!). The snow has finally stopped, the wicked wind (and yes, it was WICKED) has finally left, and the sun has come out. So I am going to get some pictures of snow ball fights for motion and see if they come out. So I will post another motion post later today if they come out. :D
But until then, here are my tries. I was thinking of a kid and a lollipop.
Here is my first try: Somewhat good, but now, Rebecca, can you see what I mean about focusing on the eyes? :D
Second try: It is OK, but still SOMETHING should be IN FOCUS. The lollipop looks great though! :D
Third try: Would have been PERFECT if those darn eyes were in focus!
Two more shots of my daughter loom knitting. These were taken just trying to capture motion:
REALLY close to coming out good. The loom and hand holding the loom should have been in focus that would have been the perfect shot.
Better. The yarn is in focus! :D YEA! The hand is almost in focus.

OK here is my first try. I had MM throw snow up in the air and took the shot. I love how it came out, but it would be better if the snow flakes had some motion blur to them.
Here is my second try. I had JJ throw snow up in the air. He is not in focus but the background is. LOL!! Got some lblur on the flakes and him (he was moving). Getting better.
My third attempt. I have to admit that THIS is my favorite. Although I do wish SHE were in better focus. She was knocking snow off the tree.
Here is another one of her knocking snow off the tree. What parts of her that are not moving are in focus. :D
Here us another attempt. MM was walking and she fell. I have no idea how she is in focus in the middle of a fall but the snow she kicked up isn't. LOL!! But I loved her smile, even though she fell.
And my final attempt, MM throwing snow. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this one. She looks great. Her beautiful smile. She is in focus. The snow thrown is not. I have no idea how it happened, but I am so thankful it did.
I honestly do not know what I am doing. LOL!! I took a lot of pictures and played around a lot with shutter speed and aperture. I have a book that I will be reading on this subject.
