Slow speed with pan is a new departure for me, somewhat forced on me by lousy light.
Does it work?

I think it works very well - very good attempt. However, it's a shame you've chopped the top of his head off!

a wonderful capture! And the small amount at the top of the helmet makes little difference IMO.

Was a bit annoyed I didn't get him all in. I couldn't get further back due to a running rail, some of which I cloned out from the bottom of the pic and I was right at the 100mm end of the lens. Had I planned it, I'd have changed the lens and probably missed the shot altogether
Thanks for your interest

I think this is a great shot overall. The top of the helmet is a bit of a shame and the back ground cars add a bit of clutter but sometimes you just have to shoot what is there.

Really I do like it

Hello Nigel, a fine piece of camera work capturing the action so perfectly...the blurred background is another feature of your shot that compliments the action. Excellent. click
