Ford Escort Mk1 - Roskirk Stages

By Hepialid
I recently went to watch the Roskirk Stages Rally at the Three Sisters Circuit near Wigan and had a bit of practise with my panning technique.

I think the fornt of the car is in focus, but the rear clearly isn't. I presume this is due to a slightly too long exposure, or that the back of the car was sliding sideways towards me?

As always, happy to receive critique and comment on the photo and technique.

The panning has helped though even the front of the car is a tad on the soft side. I don't do much of this but I do photograph flying birds a lot and for really fast moving objects you still have to have a very fast shutter speed. You don't give capture data here but Im guessing if you doubled your shutter speed and prefocussed on the spot your panning shots would get better and better. It also helps to use a big aperture so that backgrounds are out of focus anyway. Even so one has to try a lot of shots and then select. Good luck. A

Thanks accipiter, much appreciated. I took loads of shots on the day, some worked and some, well were deleted fairly quickly.
