Nice series! While it's not my favorite and I'm sure many will disagree, but I really like the panning one with the blurry foreground trees at the back of the car - looks like the car is bursting out of the trees. Since I love sunset/sunrise pictures, those are my favorites.

Out of curiosity, did you purposefully leave in/add noise in the last one? I like the dark borders you added and the color/framing is very cool, but I think I might like it better if you were to run it through a bit of noise reduction (or at least try it a bit since sometimes noise reduction software can cause a bit of color loss and you've got some awesome, but delicate, color in it - don't want to lose that). Oh well, something to play around with a bit and perhaps reject as it could make things worse.

Harriet I will see if my nr program can "fix" the last one. I also like the pan shot with the BMW, it was the sharpest pan I got and had the best sense of speed.

Nice work, Ira. I love the Targa Newfoundland. I swear I'm going to make it there very soon.

The sunset shot was my favorite to begin with, but with the reduced noise, it's even better. Great photos of a really interesting event.

Ira, I like the panning shots and the photo journalistic views of people working on their cars but find the details on some to be lost in shadow. I did some shadow highlight work in Photoshop on two of them and there is a lot more detail to be had in the images.

Good show Ira,
There are probably the last photo shots before you headed back to school up north.
I hardly tried panning. But that is something that I can work on
