I would like to thank everyone for there comments, I personally liked the tight crop, but agree the norm is to have a looking space, I feel honored to be voted 4th place, and thank you all for the time spent voting, and commenting, about the shot, this was a hand held shot, with the lens at about 150ml, about 50yds from the road, I was hoping to get some motorcycles going by, and was just taking every thing from trucks, to people walking and jogging, just practicing, when I saw this car, I think itís a Shelby Cobra, not sure though as these kit cars all tend to be slightly different, just so lucky at how well it came out, this is really the first time I ever tried to get a motion pan, shots like this I always used a high shutter speed to keep the subject sharp, thanks again.

I think you cut off a little too much on the left. otherwise great motion shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2007 03:42:10 PM
the settings are right and there is noce motion blur, but the green in a little oversaturated and the crop is a little tight 7

Nice shot, it would be nice to have a little bit more space in front of the car for a better composition

Good sense of motion here, keeping the main subject clear - well done!

Nice shot. Frame feels a bit too tight. I would extend the frame in the front.

Nice car and effects. I like the color combination very much, too. Feels a little too cramped in front and behind the car though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2007 12:07:12 PM
I wonder if a bit more space for the car to drive into would really help here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2007 09:34:04 AM

I'd love to see either where he's going or where he's been. It seems a tad "tight" to me as it is. Great colors and it certain has the subject focused with the rest of the world whizzing by.
