Tapping creativity by panning

While I was on the streets of Bangkok a few days back, I really wanted to take some different kinda snaps instead of the regular freezed ones.

Going back to the hotel room, I quickly Googled for the 'Panning' technique to capture subjects which are in motion and give the image a feel of the subject's movement.

The picture besides was taken using the panning technique in which you should be on lower shutter speeds, focus on the subject and then move your camera in the direction of the subject just as you hit the capture button. 
This way, your subject (the person and the bike in my picture) is in focus whereas the background gives a feel of the movement that your subject is making.

Am sure there could be many more creative ideas once you get a hang of this technique.
