Good shots. I really like #3 and #4. Good use of panning.

They are some amazing shots. What camera were you using and what, shutter/aperture etc.

Thanks guys!

I am was using a Canon 20D camera and a 70-200 F4L.

Shutter was around 1/160th sec, and aperture around 4.5 to 5.6

Did you have to pan to get those shots? Or can you achieve them simply by using a slower shutter speed and larger aperture like 5.6?

I like how you managed to capture the feeling of speed in your shots. With your RC car in focus and the background blurred with streaks.

For the uninitiated, we wouldn't have known they were NOT the real BIG things. Well done especially 3 and 4 as they don't have people in the background with which we can compare the sizes. Well done.
