    Any c&c is welcome.

    One thing I'd like to ask, how would you lower the glare from the sun against the bikes?

    I think this one is underexposed. I was trying to capture my brother's face through his face shield. I wanted a look of determination.

    Dicing for the lead.

    I'm going to work on panning and slowing my shutter speed a little bit more.

    1,2 &4 are just pictures. Not bad but see similar all the time.
    #3, you caught the excitement of racing and competition.
    Blurred backgrounds can add a lot to racing pictures. Keep it up.

    At least they're not snapshots :D. So fundamentally they're alright I take it? Thanks for the responses.

    They all look a bit flat, #3 is the best but the mashall in the background spoils it. look for different angles
    I like to like to get shots on corners that show the contours of the track http://gsgary.smugmug.com/Sports/Cadwell-BSB-Practise/Image00002/188042161_gpBM5-L.jpg

    here's an angled one where the rider and bike mirror the armco http://gsgary.smugmug.com/Sports/Cadwell-BSB-Practise/Image00037/577228434_Kzjw5-L.jpg

    something a bit different

    close up

    look where the other photographers are and go somewhere different
    Hope this helps

    Helps quite a bit actually. Although, I'm not sure what you mean by flat or how I would fix that.

    Why would you want to reduce the sun on the bikes? Without the contrast the bikes would be flat and without dimension.. In fact I'd enjoy seeing a litle more contrast.
    However, If you want to reduce reflections you might want to use a poarizing filter..

    Really loved number 3, all good though. I have to say I'm biased though, used to do AMA Superbike racing, sportsman class (amateur class), and they bring back those great memories of my long past youth.:lol:

    I disagree with one posters assesment that "they are just pictures". I find that shooting super fast sports is difficult to capture, especially with as sharp as yours.

    What i mean is the colours don't pop, try adjusting level and adding a bit of contrast it will make a big difference

    That's pretty much what I thought you meant. I'll have to do some editing.
