Pikes Peak again
Side road in Breckenridge Colorado. Taken around sunrise hence the high iso and soft shadows.
1/250s f/6.3 2800iso
Obligitory bird pic. Warm reflection at the top was from shooting through glass. Crosshatched bokeh was caused by a screen behind the owl.
It's mostly panning but the shutter speed plays a big role. Too short a shutter speed means you won't get much motion blur. Longer shutter speeds give you more background blur but you risk blurring the subject due to jerky panning. Even then, the subject can still have a bit of blur if it's not...
A sunset and some wildlife. The peacock pic was a bit of a challenge. I had to go out before sunrise to set up the shot. There were about 10 to 12 birds total but as soon as the sun hits the tree all the peacocks jump out to go forage. That was the cleanest shot I got.

A little backyard birding action from about 25ft away while shooting in silent mode to not spook them. I might have to try and recreate the second shot using a faster shutter speed. I was only shooting 1/500 to keep the iso low. I liked that you could see their extra eyelid in the second shot...
The 3400 is over half a pound lighter too, it makes the 7200 look huge. haha
Here are some from a recent trip to Colorado. Pics lead to flickr with exif info, album has 20 additional photos.
