Inside, Looking Out...

Inside, Looking Out...I like the trails on this, well captured.

But the whole surroundings of the car are a bit distracting for me, the Lamppost could have been cloned out?

Also, I am not sure if the side view works well? Maybe a lower down pov will make this more dynamic and get the trails clearer and a more composed image?

Quote: Now I don't agree I know the books say leave space to move into but in this case the interest is in the speed and the wash behind the subject, I think the comp is fine as it is rushing to the edge of the image and going fast enough to allow the breaking of this so called rule.
Great shot and leave it as is ,the movement adds to the shot.

Do agree with this image, that Composition does work well, but with a crop from the top of the frame down a tad.

Can You Handle It !!

Can You Handle It !!Liking this shot alot, super clear and love the clarity.

also the reflections work well with the colours and composition of the shot.

One small thing, would be that maybe a tighter crop would make this more dynamic??

Super shot.

you second from the left face forwardNicely composed, but would like to see more of the birds and a little more of a pov to the left.

Photo Finnish

Photo FinnishV1 for me.

slow the shutter speed down when you first start to 1/350th/1/250th and then get slower and slower at each meeting.

your photos at a higher shutter speed will be sharper, but then keep practicing each event and gradually get slower and they will get sharper, with correct panning.

As soon as you can see the object in the frame start following it with your eye, and when it goes past you, you should pan at near enough the same speed as the object is going.

thats a quick bit of info.
Paul Bird Grizedale Stages Rally 2009Well timed, and caught, but I think the shutter speed is a little to slow for a first time, this is why it is a little oof.

Maybe next time, try a shutter speed, starting at 1/250th, and work down to what ever this was 1/100th?

Looks like a nice scene for a motorsport shot!

Monday morning

Monday morningThe moody sky is superb!! It really tells a story here!!
I love the way the Motorway has been framed by the two small hills!

My only things that I would find more impacting, would be too have more of a foregroud, such as full back ends of the cars infront and some tarmac, to give a nicer composition and lighting to the shot.

Three into One

Three into OneBrilliant action shot, the G50's allways give good action.

1) the exposure is perfect

2) the details are awsme.

3) Superb timing, great action capture.

4) my only thing in this would be to crop some grass out of the FG, and a little from the top, and maybe some from the right hand side.

thruxton bsb

thruxton bsbWould look better with some movement, so lower the shutter speed to about 1/250th Maybe? and Lower the ISO a tad to get some of that noise away.

superbike spill

superbike spillfirst of all, the upload is way to small, needs to be resized to about 600px on the largest side, then that would look so much better, would also, crop the barrier out of the botoom of the frame, becasue it distracts your eye from the action that is happening.

You have timed this well, and you have got a great action POV, to show what has happend, what I would do was to make it a tighter crop, to bring more detail out, and to boost the contrast a tad.

I will try to do a mod, to show you.

Galloping!!You have caught the movement well, but the BG is to distracting

Clematis Josephine

Clematis  JosephineLooks good, but would like to see it larger to bring more detail out.

Demolition durby

Demolition durbyFirst of all, their is way to many distracting objects in the photograph, crop out the bottom and top of the image, to make it sort of like a letter box crop, and then you wouldnt have all the distracting crowd in the way, and that means you can just focus on what it ment to be focused on, and you would need to clone that big long pole of of the shot, but ver carefully or else you could mess up the whole photograph. But when shooting this sort of shot, use a slightly faster shutter speed, just so you can see the drama and damage on the other cars, so the viewer's will know what this race is about, and you can still have superb movement. aswell by doing that..

Hope this help.

Flat Out

Flat Outvery well caught speed shot, but the angle to a bit to uphill, maybe try making thr shutter speed a tiny incy bit faster, so you can still get the full amount of detail and get the car in movement still,.
very good though, and they are one hell of a car to go round it.

BikerThe shutter speed it way to slow you need to put in up a bit to get the rider in focus and half the bike infocus to get that real sense of movment, th shutter speed that I would have used is 1/125th maybe, and a crop from the bottom of the image, to get some of that free space out of it.

Off Road

Off RoadWell timed and a good use of shutter speed to get the wheels and sense of movement right. but th crop is a tad bit to tight just leave a little more infront to show were its going and would look better if you could see more of the wheels at the bottom and more grass.

Hope that helps.

s100 iron gate

s100 iron gateWell taken and crisp shot.
But the BG is way to much of a distraction when looking in the BG, becasue of that marshall, and the messy BG.
what I would do is crop a small area from the rear of the image to get that eye distraction stuff out of the way and then clone out that yellow tape. and then keep it more orgional, becasue that other modification doesnt look origional but looks good.

s100 2008

s100 2008I like the clearness of the shot, but the exposure is a tad to dark, put the exposure up about +0.5, or +1, and that would be alot more brighter and would bring more detail.
personally I dont like the POV not much happening and the BG is to eye distracting. if you had timed the shot a little latter you could have got the rider, the eyes and the handle bars in a full frame shot, and at an angle so you can see were he is going, with using a slower shutter speed that would work spot on,. And when panning a bit later you could have not got that white van in the shotm, becasue thats the most distraction part when looking at the main subject of the image, and am I right in saying that was a the eyes.

Hope that helps.

Opppss!!Love the timing, and compositon.
Nice detail and superb lighting, great to leave room behind the car for this shot, to show were he has been and room infront to show were the dirver is going after the small mistake, and bringing up the timing again, to get that front wheel up in the air, well done indeed.

Maybee a crop would look good on this, becasue you can still leave room being and infront, but to make it closer and bring out more detail, to show much more movement aswell.

leaders into church

leaders into churchNiceely caught action with all the bikes heading into the same place, but the shot is was to far away, you either need to crop alot or zoom alot, but that would take alot of the image quality away, so after you had done that you will need to sharpen and then crop a small bit from the right of the image, to get that marshall out of the shot, because thats a bit of a distration.

I hope that helps
