Its a good effort at panning, nice sense of movement.

The car itself is in focus, but needs to be sharpened a little here, - you likely lost a little detail in the re sizing process. So after you resize and save, open ans sharpen as needed, then save, then upload.

Overall the image will benefit with some more contrast, its a little flat, and Ive uploaded a mod with the car sharpened, contrast adjusted, and Ive cropped to place ht car further left, and lower in the frame by adding some height to the trees.

Scroll up to the modification tab to see the mod.

Good work,


regards


Willie

A Ford Escort "dogbone" of the late 60's! Yeah they are still "rallye" capable girls but they need caring attention. I like the colour as is , it actually reminds me of 70's pictures from rallies during summer! Love it.

Nice effort. A friend of my son has one of these fully restored. It is very fast! I would clone out the bloke in blue, then crop a bit at the top. Shapness is quite reasonable, but would prefer the car just a touch sharper with blurred wheels and background. ISO200 or 400 I think, then a faster shutter speed whilst retaining the pan.

I used to have a mk1 Escort Mexico 1600, in yellow. Fast and fun, but the heater blowers were rubbish!
You've caught the movement well, but not in a very dynamic way...consider turning the frame (see Top Gear magazines etc), perhaps so the car is travelling uphill instead, and also maybe get rid of the people on the right.
Otherwise, well caught, as UK rallying usually involves long days in dark and wet conditions.
