Czech Days in full swing

Tabor's Czech Days is always one of my favorite festivals to photograph, but each time I try to find a new way to shoot. This year I attempted to capture a crowd of colorful Beseda dancers swirling around a central sharp figure.

Use of a slower shutter speed and Photoshop's radial blur filter accomplished pretty much what I had in mind.

 I also found a smiling face in full Czech regalia on the carnival carousel to create a similar effect by panning with the motion.

Czech Days continues throughout the weekend, with another round of Beseda dancers on Saturday night at 8:30 p.m.
