Hi Lionsitaly,

I've just moved this so that the sports shooters can get a look at these. Always best to post within the specialised areas unless you have a single photo that you want to be critiqued in a lot of detail.

I've only managed to get to motocross once and it's a fun it a little loud place to shoot.

I usually don't like shots that are too wide but your first two work well for me.

3 would have been good if it were not for the cropped wheel

4 it a good sharp shot but too much dead space so it's finding the balance between 3 and 4.

5 is again almost there but a little soft from either panning technique or focus, it's hard to tell.

However for a first outing you have some shots to be very happy with and hopefully next time out you can go to the next level.

Another thing that would really help and you see the pro motocross shooters doing is to use flash to give their subjects that pop to pull them off of the background.

Shot 2 is the money shot for me. Plenty of action in the foreground and background. The only thing that spoils it, is the big mound of dirt no the left hand corner.

I tried shooting stock car racing once - failed miserably.
