Default A visit to the local practise track

I'm pretty out of practise to say the least but it sure was nice to give the 1DmkIII a proper play for the first time in over a year. I had forgotten how nice it is to use.

I hope to get out again over then next weeks/months to get my quality back up.

WB needs a bit of a tweak on a few I think.

wow. some great shots there mark. I'd have to say my favorite is your 3rd pic (of the quad), love the panning.

It's also nice to see outdoors photos that don't have snow involved... i'm so tired of snow here!

Great, considering they are just "out of practice" picks...
No jocking: superb picks.

Hi Mark, you back in Blighty then?. Some nice sharp captures here & I see you still know how to pan. Kind regards Graham.

Thanks everyone.

Zombz, it depends on the look you want. If you are going for a pretty solid shot but with some wheel movement (jumps, coming out of corners, head on etc) then go for 1/400 or 1/500s. If you can get a position to allow you to pan then drop it to 1/60-1/100s depending on the speed/distance. Basically have a play and enjoy it

Graham, I was panning but nothing too crazy, only dropped it to 1/60s, below that then it's a bit crazy with the vertical movement that is induced from the bumps/ruts etc.

For all you stuck in snow, I'm pleased we didn't get it for long and although it was a cold day (2 deg C) when I shot this all was fine with the right clothes on.
