My first outing with a DSLR to shoot speedway, got access to the "infield" and could shoot away with great views.

Most shots were 1000th @f4 and ISO 250

Canon 1dMkIII and a 70-200 f2,8

1)



2)




3)


4)


5)




C&C /tips welcomed

Great shots Frisky!! well done!advantage of being infield is no "muck spraying":lol:. I do think that some ofyour superb images lack the "pop" factor ( too keen to post and missed P&P?):lol:.

Imessed about wih a couple of pics (if you wish me to remove it i will!) and found a little USM enhancedthem no end!!. Kind regards Graham,

Thanks Graham, Yup they have come straight from the camera!

I was told not to fiddle with the shots just stick them on, I don't mind your work on them at all.

Cheers.

like you say no muck spray but my bike in the car park was a wee bit dusty!

Very odd advice. 95% of shots can be improved with post processing. Good post processing is essential. Posting without editing is only good advice when you're having problems. You've got a couple nice shots - with good post processing they could be great shots.

Great shots, like #3 the best with the tight crop. They look pretty good to me straight from the camera but Grahams edit of shot #1 does look better with a bit of USM.The edit of #3 looks a bit over exposed to me prefer the original.
