    went out today to try my hand in some action photography, practise panning and whatnot. im not sure what was going on at the place, if it was a race or a trial or what, we just sorta rocked up and i made my way up the hill to try and find some vantage points.

    iso 200, dunno the other settings, i kept changing them around experimenting with different settings.

    first two are pretty much my first time panning, these are the best of a heap of attempts

    this one im not too sure about

    #3

    and the last one...
    #4

    all in all, fairly good day, gained some practise and experience. better than sitting inside all day on the computer.
    c&c and any pointers/tips appreciated.

    Yeah the blur in the third one is bothering me. The rest are really well done.

    My personal favourite is #4, so much cleaner, im guessing you were trying panning? The blur is too small tbh..

    ^yeah this was my first time trying panning, id agree with you there. i had the shutter around 1/100 - 1/60, i didnt really want to go too much lower than that. ill experiment around a bit more next time though

    #4 is a sweet shot... the pan on 1 and 2 look good to me im just not a big fan of that angle..... 3 might look alittle weird because of the angle you would of been panning at

    I'm loving #4!

    Would be a lot more "epic" if it was more of a wider shot and I just noticed the guy in the BG, hah.

    Makes me miss downhilling and riding.....

    I like number 4 for sure. It looks like the horizon might be sloped a tad and the tree is slanted off to the right slightly? Not really a big deal but if they were straightened out it might make the hill he is riding down a bit more dramatic? Sorry, new to critiquing so don't take my input to seriously :mrgreen: They are great shots!
