    Nice photos Dave.

    You were lucky to get good weather today, weather here in Ireland was really bad. I was looking forward to going back to Mondello today as there was a carting meeting on but it rained all day :(

    My only comment I would have would be that I would like to see less DOF in the static shots, That would really make the bikes and riders stand out from the distracting background. The panning shots are great ;)

    Well done on motion blur in the pictures, compared with the ones you've been posting on here from previous weeks at Elvington I can see massive improvements in your work :)

    Favourite image I think the last one works really well, although the red LED lights in the background are a little off-putting.

    Wow! I have not shot motorsport yet - would be nice to try it one day, but my favourite shot is your 2nd one - the red is really nice and vibrant, and I like that :)

    Nice sharp pictures! Which lens were you using on your D50?

    crisp shots
    the backgrounds look blurred though instead of left behind by the panning shot which gives a great sense of movement
    how did you take these if you don't mind me asking?

    Using a 55-200 DX lens, Panning shots were taken in aperture priority mode, with it set to f12.

    They're just a bit too big. A good size for forum viewing is about 700px wide. I'm browsing at 1024x768 and they don't fit in.

    Look good at 1800x1440

    But I know what you mean. Consider average res in mind.

    haha, cyKey's got a tiddler!

    Good shots, just can't quite put my finger on what would make them REALLY good though.
