I am not sure why so many views and no comments. Seems to be the trend and it needs a bit of reversing itself in order for the forum to be more than just a post and look without any feedback.

Every shot is excellent in my opinion.

Nice freeze motion effects.
I take it you have been practicing your panning techniques :-)

I don't know how you managed to pan the third one. 1/60??? Well done, my head hurts looking at it. One improvement on the 1/60 aspect, it might work better if the car was coming into the car, it a bit of lateral movement to go with the extreme pan.

Never the less, excellent shots.

Didnot have a very high ratio of keepers at 1/60, a lot more at 1/80. Even tried some at 1/30 and managed to get this one, thehelmet, front wheel and writingto the side of wheel arerelatively sharp.

Some great shots you've got there... I especially like the pans... good job on them...

It looks like the blue MG driver is staring you right in the eyes... Porsche is a good shot too.

Did you have a track pass? It looks like you're pretty close...

-jb,

Did not have a track pass but I was allowed by a marshal to take photos from a spot at the end of the pit laneopposite the pit entrance.

I've been shooting a lot of motorsports over the past 4-5 years. It's become a bit of an obsessional science for me. I've found the best shutter speed to be 1/125th or 1/160th. This is what I'd call a safe range for getting good blur and a sharp object. Once I know I've captured a decent pic of the object I may bump it down to 1/100th but the percentage of "keepers" goes down with it.

I've never posted pics here, actually this is my first post here:G, I was out at Road America for a Ferrari/Maserati festival this weekend, I'll start a topic with some pics.

Oh, and nice pics
