    One of my cards screwed up so I lost about 50 pictures...:wtc:

    Ended up shooting like 350 shots, but half of them were just the cars in the paddock before the event.

    I'm not an expert, but I like them. What kind of camera did you use?

    Looks like you had a bad location. You were shooting at 1/160 but there's not much motion blur/panning action going on since you picked a location where the cars were coming at you, rather than going from left to right or vice versa.

    It is his first time out, not bad. My first time out at a drift practice, I was shooting at 1/90 @ f13. Some people would just rather have more keepers than blurs.
     

  7. :bowrofl: :bowrofl: :bowrofl: good job uglifying that 240 :o

    Maybe he was hoping he'd crash head-on into a wall :dunno:
     
  8. You should look up an OTer who goes by Trueno and send him this pic via PM

    were you in the stands or trackside?

    if you were in the stands, great job. if you were trackside, practice moar panning shots.
     
  11. From looking at the pics I'm 99% sure he was not in the stands.

    nice pics. Good choice of shutter speed getting blur on the wheels - that's the most important thing. going slower means you throw away more shots. being a touch faster and using a wider aperture throws the background out a bit anyway. I also like the long crops you've done, it works well.

    some of the photos are a tad hazy, which can be cleaned up in PS. Eg to my eye this looks better (quick tweak only):

    If you have bright light to play with the other thing you can do is add a polariser to cut down on window/bonnet reflections. But this may leave you too little light to get clean shots. I haven't tried using one when shooting high speed action.
