Sometimes it's quite easy to show movement - it simply happens as movement blur. But quite often the photographer fights like hell to visualize or enhance the feeling of speed... Thank you Vackerman to lend me the photo!

Taken: Wednesday, 9th July, 2008
Focal length: 18 mm
Shutter speed: 1/30 sec
Aperture: F6.7
ISO: 800
Notes: Used longish manual exposure combined with trailing-curtain flash. In order to get the exposure right, I shot a few test shots before his act, aiming at the rope-supporting pole and used that to both focus manually and adjust the exposure and flash settings. Minimal processing (crop, noise reduction and a bit of contrast enhancement).
