    I would accept panning shots as stopped motion. But that's up to the theme maker to clarify, I guess :)

    I think you should ;-)
    I was unsure if panning shots fit the theme.
    It's still invalid as it was taken last year

    Is a photograph of somthing that is moving in any form not stopped motion in anycase?

    It is afterall a still image of whatever the moving subject is :)

    Nice pictures. I like the Royal Airforce shot with the people in it. I only have one in Flickr, fairly recent that I could think about entering if it was valid. I don't do much motion shots. But I guess for this I will have to :)

    I didn't really understand the theme at first. I only know 'Stop Motion' as a film term so was curious to see how it relates to Still Photography. A quick google search and a flick through flickr led me to understand this shot of mine would fit into the theme.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/creativegenie/5954844561/" title="DSCN0271 by CreativeGenie_Productions, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm7.staticflickr.com/6022/5954844561_c25b5665d6.jpg" width="375" height="500" alt="DSCN0271"></a>

    Am I on the right track?

    Your actual picture is not showing correctly, but looking on flickr I would say that's bang on theme. :)

    Nice, and this I think is on the thought lines for when the theme was selected.

    Well, the circuit I have infront of me is using a 555 with a phototransister break beam to trigger an output to an electronic switch (SCR) basicly a bistable held low untill the beam is broken.

    However, whilst browsing and working on a delay circuit I found this



    And thought, hang a banger, so I have a dev board on order. worth a play.

    Just done a video on my blackberry, lets see if i can upload it.

    Sorry but for me the second shot here is much better than your entry - I prefer the lower angle of shooting but especially the fact that you cna actually see the ball in this shot :)

    I 100% agree, the ball that is frozen and the motion of the wheel I really like that.
