    Very nice action photos, the 3rd is showing a real sence of speed.
    I think that the others would be just as good if you used the same shutterspeed ( 1/125 ) or pehaps a bit slower.
    Panning motorcycles is not the easiest target but a trick is to shoot at least 3photos at every "pan", that way toy usually end up with at least on that´s sharp.

    I think they're fantastic for your first time! I really like the flame coming out of the tailpipe!

  5. Thanks for your comments, I actually thought i had to have a much faster shutter speed than that (1/125)so thats a great tip for next time. I'll also remember the 3 shot burst. Much appreciated. :biggrin:

  7. Raurick, your comments are very well received, thank you.
  8. Can I ask your opinion please. I'd like to have one printed and give it to my cousin as a gift for holding my bag all day - which should I print (if any) ?

    Hi antsplan, Glad you had a great time:smile:
    Hope you dont mind but I had a little play with one of your pics...
    This the one that I would print and the stlye that I would use...


    (It's quite difficult without the original)
    Once again hope you dont mind. I think that you have done really well for your first attempt, I'm was'nt knocking you in my first post... Just passing on what I have learnt..:smile:
  9. Jason that is great - thank you very much - do you fancy having a go at the original or telling me what you done other than the crop obviously.

    PS I didnt think you were knocking me, perhaps my reply came over the wrong way, I'm very glad to receive any advice you can offer.

  10. Have sent you a Private message..
