Beautiful capture...only remark, that I prefer to have more space in front of action then behind that gives more direction of movement IMO.

Bravo - these can be hard to grab. I've shot a lot of IndyCar racing and recently some American Le Mans series. Nice capture with the full car in focus during motion panning.

A great shot - I like the composition.

killer shot. it would have been stronger, had you cropped in tighter to the car. all that space behind and above the car is wasted. hope you had a good time!

Subject needs to be further towards the back of the photo with more space in front giving the effect of moving forward not out...
