Hi Folks

First couple of pages were looking a bit bereft of Motorsport so thought I'd step up to the breach

All images can be found on my facebook page BTCC amateur photography please take a look there and give it a "like"

K3ii & 60-250 (my first full day shooting with the 60-250)

Drifting round Druids




Cresting the hill




Cocking a leg




This was literally a brand new Subaru an Hour before




Through the fence




Team Danmark




Thanks for looking

Nice set Peter.

The 60-250 seems to work well for you.

No 2 has a strong graphical impact, a bold diagonal and razor sharp. Also powerful contrast. I'd try and clone out the distracting colours and patterns in the very bottom left corner behind the red car. Should be easy to replace it with the brown tarmac

The other shots are sharp and frame filling ...I feel that the blurring with the backgrounds is not really enough... Seems to compete with the subject, so maybe needed a longer exposure time .... ?

1/60th is pretty much the limit of where I can get a reasonable keeper rate I do usually try a few at 1/30th but I find it darn hard to keep the car sharp, may get better this time last year I wouldn't have tried much lower than 1/160th.

Here's one at 1/30th to compare

Looks like you need to find some faster cars then There is a greater sense of motion in that longer exposure ... But I appreciate you're at the limits for sure. Doesn't distract from an excellent set of racing images.
