As I sort through the shots from the weekend this one keeps catching my eye.

Sigma 70-300mm @ 300mm f27 and 1/125 panning shot.

I really like it too. Great job panning with this one Phil! That must have been some bright sunlight for you to have to stop down to f/27 just to get 1/125.

What a terrific shot! Panning is yet another area that I really need to practise, as you have proved the results can look stunning.

Who selected the f27 &1/125s, you or the camera? I'd think I'd have been tempted to open the aperture a bit and go for a higher speed. But that's because I don't have faith in my panning ability so assume that a higher shutter speed might disguise my shortcomings.

One of my aims on the day was practice with different and slower shutter speeds.

With the automatic lenses I used Tv (shutter speed priority) mode or else set teh shutter speed first on the manual lens.

The bright sunlight was a bit of a problem as the contrast range was huge. I tried exposure compensation to under expose a bit reduce blown highlights.

Very nice use of shutter speed to show movement.
