6 points for Nick

By kilo363
Nikon D300s
Nikon 70-200 f/2.8
1/160 s
ISO 200
Shot in manual

All I've done with this is adjust the lights and levels and a little bit of selective exposure adjustment in Lightroom

A very bright day in Glasgow with low strong sun (from basically over his right shoulder)

This was another attempt at slowing the shutter speed to get a strong blurred background, doing that meant closing down the aperture a fair bit more than I normally would

Something that has never occurred to me for speedway. Next time the sun is like that i will try a polarizer filter

I think this is one of your best speedway shots, Al. Lovely blurred background and good colours. Good sense of speed, light well controlled, nice positioning in the frame.

Well done! what more could you ask for!

Thank younPaul, it's an ongoing learning process. Many of the riders are using my shots, though my main aim is club competitions. I find using EPZ as a sounding board very valuable
