    :hsd: They aren't as sharp as I hoped, my focusing was a little off. :mamoru:

    More blurry ones here.

    Not too bad. A lot better than what I've seen from others. I was at a local autoX yesterday but couldn't get good panning shots due to slower-than-normal speeds and course layout. All the good areas had course workers or poles in the way :\

    Here's a few (Canon 20D):

    Yeah, there weren't too many places I could stand to get the pics. I think mine are a little overexposed. I would shoot in raw then mess with photoshop, but I don't want to rely on photoshop to fix my mistakes. :greddy:

    Croped out a lot of the background and darkened this one up a bit in photoshop. Also added a pretty decorative border. :mamoru:

    Nah, Photoshop is almost a necessity as much as some people would like to argue. I rarely get autocross photos out of the camera that don't rely on any tweaking.

    the photos could be sharper. i looked at the exif and your shooting at 1/50 with a small F stop. a faster shutter speed and a bigger F stop would work better.

    Well I was shooting with a small aperture so I could keep the lens open longer to get the motion blur. Did I just do too much? This is the first DSLR I have owned so I can actually practice and stuff now. Before I had to borrow/rent from my school. Maybe tomorrow when I get bored at work I will go outside and take pictures of the cars driving by haha.

    you didn't need to use f/29 for those...you probably could have gotten away with using f/16 or 11 and still got some blur.

    :rofl: I wanted to make sure the lens would stay open long enough. :coolugh: Looking at them now some of the look rediculous with all the blur. A little overkill. I will try toning it down a little bit next time. :hs:

    Just wondering how you guys get those shots?

    Longer shutter speed + move camera on tripod?

    ~ 1/100 shutter, ISO 400, f/10-15ish (depending on light) and just moving the camera with the car (panning) to blur out the background while keeping the car in focus.
