This is hardly cropped at all, just straightened slightly, so it is what is Smile

Young Nick Morris (Red helmet cover) against Paul Clewes (White) of Berwick. Nick turned 16 in June and is a great wee racer (and I mean wee)

I will accept any criticism about there not being enough blur in the wheels, it's difficult to pan when they are coming head on Wink I think the shale spray gives enough movement in this one though.

This shot and those of the last couple of days were all from last Sundays meeting. We're against Newcastle on Sunday coming Smile

Looks like you already did the critique for yourself! LIke the spray and the pic looks pretty good to me. Nice diagonal composition. But I know nothing about motorsport...

Cracking shot, I think that you have got this just right.

Good as usual. Plenty of spray to suggest movemnt although body of bikers not quite as crisp as usual I think.

Depending on your point of view you can add blur after taking the shot. You may not want to do this if your shots are a documentary of the event. However, if it is pictorial action shot you might consider a bit of artisitc license. I will try to demonstrate this in a mod. Other than a bit of colour adjustment I agree with the comments above.
