For me your crops are getting too tight, the panning is good and the exposure too, but the car has no room, leave it a little room to move into and the shots will look far better, I am keeping an eye on your folio and the only thing bothering me is the crop.
I am saying this as for me its better to let you know now rather than you get used to shooting or editing your pics this way.
I am not a pro sport tog by any means, but have learned the hard way.
Keep em coming, your doing well.

I agree with Steve, shots are very good but you need to look more closely at your post processing.
This is nice and crisp but to tight in the frame.

My preference would also be for a little more space on the left and a chunk more space on the right, but the action, panning and detail are superb

Scott most of us agree about your cropping. It is better to let the editor do the cropping but your panning technique and photographic skills are spot on.

Well I think this is brilliant. I understand what they are saying about the cropping, but sometimes you have no choice but to get rid of other distractions as you pointed out in my shot. You have a great portfolio, just keep them coming. R Peter

Hi Scott I said this before and agree with the comment - inspite of the fact that you've captured a great sense of movement and detail in this shot Ina
