It must be creeping old age, I forgot you can't shoot sports with a Pentax

LOL! Love the picture, and it makes me want to practice panning - the first couple of times I tried it were miserable failures. Well done!

Very very nice! Panning is really cool and you did an excellent job on that one. There is a race in Sebring next weekend but I will be forced to take pictures in the Caribbean instead .

It does take practice, my first few hundred were mostly miserable failures.

After going digital I founds that the instant feedback on the preview screen helped.

As soon as you make a big mistake you can then work on correcting the problem

Hi Phil,
I have the same failure rate as you I think but when you do get something half reasonable it feels good.
Here's one of mine, Motogp 07 Philip Island between turns 11 & 12 I think.

Nice pic of the Duke.

your local track is a great place for photographs.

My failure rate is pretty low now, but but was disheartingly large at first.
Like all things if you practice with a plan you do improve.

Here is a Simon Wills at Symmons Plains, turn 2

About the best I can do when it comes to race cars is this one, taken today. Not exactly difficult to take, but a pretty car anyway.
