Challenge: Panning (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark IIn
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
Location: Santa Pod
Date: Feb 10, 2008
Aperture: F/10
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/50
Galleries: Travel, Action
Date Uploaded: Feb 12, 2008

Had an idea for bread but then got an email from Santa Pod saying the had a RWYB (run what ya brung) day on their 1/4 mile drag strip - all cars were street legal though I had hoped to see the resident rocket car.

I learnt panning was not quite as simple as first thought and as the speed wasn't constant what worked with one shot was a mess with the next.

All the images of the day were shot in JPEG and when I eventually remembered switched the IS to #2 lol

A very nicely taken shot, the movement is very bold and obvious, giving a very distinct look of speed.

This is a good job of panning. I like the fact that you were able to use an interesting car rather than a 1984 chevy or a saturn.

Love the clean lines, the wheel blur, and that I can see the driver's face. Nice shot.

very nice framing, and the white car and line work very well against the grey background. very obviously used panning here, and this shot took some skill!
