    Decided to have a go at this one again and think this works much better.

    Canon EOS 10D
    ISO-100
    1/13sec.
    f/22
    Sigma 24-70mm f/3.5-5.6 HF Aspherical @44mm

    Not as sharp as the others I know but I thought I'd post it anyhow :confused:

    No he is actually only moving at about 35mph I just needed a title! Looks like 200 though :lol:

    I tired about 20 or so pics at this shutter speed and this was the only one that was even close to salvageable. Most of them had pretty bad camera shake in them.

    So it's not as good as the other one you posted. It's still amazing (especially now I know how you did it!)

    with such a fast moving subject and a slow shutter speed you only get one go at it! that is until he comes around again! still a neat shot!

    I like it! :)
    I've looked at thousands of supercross/motorcross action shots, I used to do catalog layout for White Brothers Racing, this is a shot that I would have picked out to use. I haven't figured out how to set these kind of shots up yet either. :grumpy: I used to work with Kenny Jones (He shoots for just about every dirt bike mag), but I wasn't really into photography at the time. It's sad really :( , I could have gotten a lot of pointers from him. I guess that's why I'm here now! Besides, none of my Las Vegas Supercross shots were worth a crap. So, it was delete...delete...delete! :meh:

    Nice photo. I bet that wasn't easy to get! Did you use a monopod?

    :shock: Whoa! Ha where should I send the pics! That is one of the most flattering compliments I've recieved about any of my images, THANK YOU!

    Glad it's inspiring to some people to try this. I did a write up yesterday in the how to section regarding the methods I use/used.

    Trigger: No monopod here, handheld only :shock: that's why my failure rate was so high though :( After this experience I know I need to buy one though ;)
