    Sure! When you create a post, or reply, click the little yellow icon on the top frame..the one with the mountain in it...paste you image link in it and Viola! It shows in the body of your post.

    I just switched your URL links to IMG links....if you want to do it the hard way :) 

    Great shots man
  4. A couple more..

    Many thanks for the comments and advice. I'll try again..





  5. These are excellent shots. Hoping to visit the next round of the Superbikes being held here in Ireland next weekend. :smile:
  6. Wow, #3 in your 2nd post just pops, tack sharp and great job panning...shooting kid's lacrosse, I don't quite get the chance to practice my panning techniques. Hope the fellow who took the spill walked away from it...

    Very nice photos.
    I really like the 3rd one which really shows the determination and concentration the rider puts in to produce quick lap-times.

    And the last crash-sequence....good catch, but it hurts a bit to look at.
    I raced for 10 years in Superbike, SS600 and other classes and I have crashed A Lot, and even if you walk away from a crash like that it builds up until the day either your body or your wallet has had enough.

    ( A racer without a crooked collarbone is not a real racer! )

    Hi All, Many thanks for all the comments, did'nt expect so many replys. Glad you all like the pics, I can't wait till June 23rd for the Moto GP at Donnington (in UK)
    Like Mike said it's about being in the right place at the right time.... Just been very very lucky I guess...!!!
    Every time this guy came into this corner he was getting a massive flame out of his exhaust, after he had done this 2-3 times I thought I would try to capture it........Here's what happened....
    D200+80-400vr (pics have only been cropped. I'm trying to stitch them together into a pano type view) if you know what I mean...







  18. I can only congratulate you for a really nice set. You caught some great moments there.

    About MotoGP: will you have access to good spots for shooting at Donnington? You might take some good images then of masters like The Doctor. Looking forward to those.

    Hard to get a sponsor when you're on your back!!:wink:
