    omg I'm so jealous that you saw a rally race. it's simply one of my lifetime goals to go see one.

    3 is definatly the best, and out of these it would be the only keeper in my opinion.

    I agree, #3 is the best.

    I see you shot at 1/20 and 1/25. You could have shot considerably quicker and still got a nice pan and the tracking/focus would have been MUCH better!

    Keep trying, though, you'll get it! :)

    These are quite good for a first attempt. My tries to pan have always only included trains and most of my pics turned out total bloopers! So congratulations!

    I think I like #3 best of all. It has a certain Lensbaby quality to it ;).
    And in #4 the car looks like it has matchbox car size, I don't know why ... only the arm on the right suggests it is a real car ;).

    Not bad for your first try. Better then mine, out of 20 only 1 was a keeper and I didn't even get the whole subject in the shot. For the people that haven't tried panning shots, they're harder then they look.

    Here is one I took at 1/80. Plenty of time for a background blur and quick enough to give decent tracking/focus.
