Award Shortlist   


By timiano  
Had a corporate meeting / day out with the members of my team at a racing cart place, so thought I'd take the opportunity to have my first go at capturing some form of motor sport.

Now I appreciate how difficult it is, and I was fairly pleased with my efforts. I was trying to get to grips with following the subject keeping it sharp and blurring the track and surroundings. I think what made it tougher was shooting with only a 100mm lens, so tracking was extremely fast.

Not the easiest subject in the world but certainly not too difficult either.
Positives about this shot are that you've captured a bit of implied action, i.e you've given us a good feeling of cornering motion.
To improve it I would prefer to see the driver's face instead of him/her going away from you.
Your shutter speed is miles too high for effective motion blurring of the background, you should be looking to shoot at around 1/80th -1/125th to get a decent panning shot
Your shot is lacking a lot in contrast and looks a little washed out, this could be avoided to some extent by shooting with the light instead of against it, if you shoot into the light at a track your metering has to be 100% spot on as the reflected light from the tarmac surface screws up most cameras average metering systems.
