Shutter: 1/2000

Queensland raceway, an open track day.

My first attempt at sports photography, with an old 80-300mm very basic zoom. Am planning on going again sometime soon with a better lens.

N.B. Actually teken with the 10D, not the 20D as stated, but that is not a choice in the pull down option (and do not want to add it as I don;t have a 10D).

Great Capture and DOF...Seeing both bikes also pumps the adrenaline for me when viewing this image. Good Luck.

Very exciting, and well photographed too. Might be even better if you had caught them a bit earlier so #99 would be more to the right in the frame. As it is, he's crowding the left side of the frame. A really good image though. Well done!

What a great stop action picture. I wonder what ISO you used because it is amazingly ungrainy! Good job.

Great capture. I ride sportbikes and know first hand how hard a capture like this can be! (10)
