I took it in the F1 Test in Barcelona during last week. In this pic, Raikkonen is driving as fast as he can... in fact, he got the best lap in those tests. My first panning attempt, I hope youŽll like it.

Cool car! Great stop motion capture. Must have been REALLY fast shutter. How fast do these things go? Wish there was a tiny bit more motion blur in the background - it would show the 'real' speed this thing can do. Great job! 7 from me.

WOW!! Nice shot!!!!

This image is surprisingly static for what it's portraying. It needs MORE blur, at least on the BG.

Barcelona testing? He was fastest that day if I'm not mistaken. Not my favourite driver, such an incredibly dull personality. Nice catch, bit tight, but because of the panning it's still a nice shot.

Great colors and sharpness.

I love your focus! It's obviously in fast motion, but you don't lose a bit of sharpness in the car! Excellent photograph!!

Great usage of the AV setting to get that little bit of movement in the wheels to see the vehicle is in motion and keeping the overall image crisp yet I would prefer to see more of the car coming at me rather than away but probably couldn't be helped due to where you were located on the sidelines... Great Shot.
