May '09: Race Cars

Seeing a friend post some nice panning images made me look back at some of mine from a year ago.
1/80 f/18 280mm  (on a 1.3 crop sensor)   100mph?

Now at 1/200

I like the second one better, with a touch more sharpness to the car. The wheels also help provide a speed reference.
But, neither is very interesting.
I'd still rather have good composition than good camera techniques.


  1. i agree, i like the last one the best too. cool shots...

  2. The last is very cool. Love the composition.

  3. It's amazing how much fun we had at this race. American LeMans Series. So fast. So loud. Jaw dropping. I almost understand why people like NASCAR. Almost.
