I like that image. The steering wheel is on the wrong side of the car, though.

;)

Nice image for just getting started.

Depending on the shutter speeds being used, I sometimes will turn IS on and sometimes just leave it off. If shutter speeds are running above 1/1000 second, I personally question how much good IS is really doing and keep it turned off, but once speeds start slowing down image stabilization definitely helps. Testing the E5 a couple of weeks ago on a Friday evening at the races, I used the IS mode 2, which is for panning and captured the image below at 1/320 second. I'm hoping to get back there again this Friday evening and do even more panning work after the sun has gone down.

:D The steering wheel is definitely on the wrong side of the car. Just ask Henry Ford. LOL

I live in Australia and we drive on left side of the road and hence we have steering wheel on right side of the car.

Harj,
I thought IS3 is for panning and had switched IS3 on. After your comments I read the manual and understood I should have used IS2.
Any way I will try more today with IS2 and see what happens.

Greg, your image is awesome. Also i understand now that my technique was wrong. I used shutter priority with 1.5 second speed and tried in evening while back from office. Your photo reflex the mood and the way sharpness is captured is mind blowing.

Yeah, I know. Ted and I were just hinting that the whole country drives on the wrong side of the road. LOL :D:D This forum has never been stuffy or shy. :)

Good luck with your panning practice.
