    I Know this is not bang on but I would still like to hear what you think.


    Went to an autograss event and got into a half decent spot too however I didn't get what I thought I did which was disappointing but there is a road race event, motor bikes, coming up near me shortly and I needed a reality check. I was using the cross type focus point setting, nikon, are they the best option for panning or should I try something else.

    OK, now I see something. Not too bad, IMHO.

    The car is super sharp and getting the glare from the driver's goggles and the car both sharp is the only thing that could make it "better." I see the cloning artifacts but I didn't see it until I read the comments and looked harder. Without the cloning, it's a cracker. I love the spinning wheels next to the sharp car. Nice job

    Can't help you with what settings to use. Not my kind of photography. Cheers

    Thanks! I will look again at the items you mentioned. Re; the cloning artifacts you have flushed me out with dogs and grenades. I didn’t spend long at it and thought I got away with it but obviously not, I will have to reattempt it I suppose.

    I see a little bit of yellow That I would determine is a cloning error, and I can see a single sensor dust blob to the left of the left front wheel of the car. I think overall this is a really good shot.

    I think you have rendered the wheels perfectly blurred, and the background is nice and blurred, and you swung the camera in perfect synchronicity with the car body.

    I gave it the winner badge. I think you did a great job of conveying movement.

    The panning technique looks spot on.
    The image is sharp and blurred where it should be.
    As for the focus point, there is no perfect answer. In this case I'd say single or a group of points would work equally well. For smaller subjects such as bikes you may wish to switch to a single point, but I would try with your current set up first. You may find it will work just fine.

    Well doen.
