    Did a track day this weekend with my car. I didnt get to shoot long since I was driving but here are some shoots I was able to get in between.

    I was trying to get panning down, tried a few combos to see what would to turn out best. I tried slower SS but than the cars would just come out really blurry. Most use 200 ISO bc I used high tone priority on the camera since it was a gloomy day. On the last two however the sun came out more. All shoot with the 55-250mm 4.0-5.6 IS.

    these are pretty good technically but in terms of composition the one that really strikes me is the second, plus i really love that car!

    i remember when i first tried panning with my tele. it was so disappointing until i realized i should turn VR off... after that it was alright!

    I agree about the second one being the most interesting.

    Nice pans, 1/22 is very respectable! Sorry to be boring but I like #2 the best also, I think the others are slightly over exposed and lacking contrast, but with slight pp tweaks I think they would be just at good as #2.

    You know I turned the contrast up in PP, so you think even more?

    Also maybe someone can help me out with this. I been having this problem when I print them in the lab they always turn out dark. I tried several different labs and its the same problem even though my screen is calibrated and the histogram looks fine. They come out like they are a stop of light too dark. So now I just post production them too look a little brighter.

    I read other posts with similar problem and people just said its normal?? But I never had this problem when I used to use my canon PS. They printed very close to what it looked like on my screen.

    The guy knew how to drive it well. It was actually funny bc him and his buddies with a vet and a new SS were playing around all day.
