Here are a few shots from this weekend's race at Lime Rock CT. First of all, thanks Mark for the advice on settings for motor sports. I had a blast!!!

Nikon D200, 70-200mm, 1/250, or 1/320 shutter speed, ISO 100, shutter priority






style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"

Good work and glad I could be a help. Even with the settings sorted there is still a lot of skill to get good shots and you have done really well here as the cars are lovely and sharp so your panning is doing well.

Next time out you will have to try some extreme blur by getting the shutter lower still!! Go as low as you dare, if you can get it then 1/15th makes things very interesting but you have to be very smooth with the pan. Oh and don't expect it a large area of sharpnessbut see what you can get

Thanks for the compliments John and Mark. Mark, the next time I will trya slower shutter speed. I should have thought of it while I was there. I did take a lot of pictures (about 400) and panning is fun!!! I was amazed on how fast they went and how fast I had to pan. At 5 fps, I was fortunate to get a keeper or two out of a 2-3 second burst. Cnat wait to get there again next year, and I will definately look for more races closer to home.

Jeff
