I love your pictures!
Which camera was used?
What kind of shutter speeds.
Looks like a high dollar camera.

Thank you very much for the kind words. The camera is an Olympus C-700. Yesterday I received a set of Hoya 55mm Neutral Density filters (ND-2 and ND-4) and a bogen 3021/3030 tripod combo and immediately and filled a couple 128MB cards....lol. I didn't do any adjustments to them other than shrinking to 1/4 size for posting and saving at 50% quality (jpg). Anyways, the shutter speed was 2 seconds at f8. It was pretty cold (~40F) so I think that helped keep the noise down a bit. If ya like messin with slow shutter speeds I think those ND's are the ticket. No more waiting for dusk, just need a shady spot and some action. Thank you again Don and Gurl!!

Im just a rookie with shutter speeds.
I have the Olympus E100RS , ive had it since Jan. 02.
I how do you set your shutter speed on 2 seconds at f8.
My camera can take 15 fps. So if I had some of those filters that would be neat.

I like that first one, what flew by in that picture?

you can check out some of my pics on www.pbase.com/wvyankeegurl

Ma'am, I am also very much a rookie too. I've seen lots of your pictures on here and I really like your "work"!! What flew by in that last picture was about a 91ish Honda Accord. It was kinda funny because I was wanting to get a car coming AT me and this one snuck up behind me..lol. He saw me fiddling with the camera and was trying to stay out of the picture but I waved him on and when he got in the lens I yelled so he'd put on his brakes and that's where the red lights came from. My apologies to whomever he is! Anyways, I think you'd have a good time with a couple of those ND's. They stack up and I think it multiplies the "value", ie the ND-2 and ND-4 = ND-8? That'd make it only allowing 1/8 of the light in and it says they don't affect the color balance at all. I look forward to seeing what you can do with all those action shots you take!! Here's a picture I took before I got those filters right at sunset, during what I think they call "the blue hour" (the hour or so after sunset) or something like that:
