    I wouldve preferred them to be a bit closer but other than that good work!
    Good seperation from the subject and the background

    I think 1 and 2 turned out really well, but the third one I just flat out don't like. The cone is distracting, the horizon is totally flat, and the crop is way too far away. One of the nice things to do with pics like that is just crop it before downsizing. I recently went to a drift event and used my new 70-200 lens (which replaced my mediocre 70-300). I lost 100mm of range but cropped the images down later to get the field of view of a longer lens:

    And for some reason drift shots almost always look better when taken at an angle. There may be exceptions to the rule, (like multiple cars, or certain viewing points) but this seems to be true a vast majority of the time.

    You can check out some of the shot's I've taken if you want some ideas next time you go out and shoot one of these. They're nothing spectacular, but its always nice to get new ideas and perspectives.

    Good luck and keep shooting! I wish we local events around here.

    First of: YES! Finally another Olympus-user


    Agree with that. All of them would look better closer up, especially the third one. What about doing some cropping magic?

    Oh, and angles. they would look better taken at an angle.

    instead of panning why not let the cars blur to show the side way action

    They need more cropping and the cones are distracting. I realize that cropping makes your images really small, so to avoid that you should zoom in more (or get closer to the cars).
