Much different than shooting the superbikes a couple of weekends ago. Fun, but not the edge to it that the bikes had.

That second one is great!!! Was it post processed? Having attempted to take car pics at Road Atlanta and at the Rolex 24 in Daytona I can say it's pretty darned tought trying to frame and capture a car traveling over 100+mph!

The 2nd one was cropped off the top only and slightly sharpened. At Mid-Ohio, there's one area where you can get 4-5 different type of shot. It's a great venue to shoot. Now, I need to get hired...

Here are a couple more.

So you were panning I assume with the way the car is in focus and the background is blurred. Great shots! When I pan my background isn't nearly as "blurred".

I tried to go as low as 1/30 sec for panning, but didn't have any success. I got the desired blurr between 1/90 and 1/180. Still had a ton of OOF shots, but I'm still learning.

Hmmmm... it just occured to me. I've kept the Image stabilization on the whole time while attempting to capture panning shots! I'm going to have to try it with the IS off.

What mode were you shooting in? Mode 2, I believe is for panning. These were shot with a 10D/Sigma 120-300 setup.
