During a trip to Oxford, I came by this street performer - and as the A/F on the Fuji X-Pro 1 needed testing on a moving subject, I thought this would make an ideal subject.

I selected an A/F point for the head and then set a suitable shutter speed to allow motion blur, whilst at the same time 'freezing' the head and showing the concentration.

This was image number 3 of 3 (the other 2 were ok as well) and gets the nod because the motion blur comes across better.

After looking at the coloured, and straight mono image, I decided to apply a drop of colour popping for the flames as I felt it added to the image.
