    My friend and I got bored so we decided to go to the racetrack by his house. I've been wanting to shoot there for a while but never made the time to.

    In retrospect I prob. should've used the 70-300 just to get them closer but being that it was my first time I didn't want to crop any limbs off. I'll prob. go back and shoot again one of these days so constructive criticism is welcomed, naturally.

    I think it may be a combination of shitty glass (70-300 is soft as a marshmallow) and my unsteadiness...I'll work on my part

    No, I cant really control the quality of the glass but I can try to hold it more steady.

    Yeah.

    And Yeah, for panning, I wanted a slow shutter speed...guess I went too slow then.
