Hello guys,

Finally back from the trip to Barcelona (that I won last month at a T-Mobile/LG prize draw). They gave us tickets for the F Grandstands (the first corner) and I think I cannot complain about anything. I am quite happy with the shots I got. Sadly I did not have enough time to practice my panning and after trying it out with the weaker grand prix series on Saturday, I decided to go ahead and freeze the action most of the time (I really did not want to go home without anything).

Now I have not slept for almost 48 hours, but I couldn't go to sleep without taking a peek at the pictures I shot on Sunday.

I shot on Shutter Speed Priority, 1/1600s with a -0.3 exposure compensation. I used the 70-300 VR all the time.

Overall I am quite happy with my first attempt at shooting motorsports.

Nice pictures. Shooting motorsports is cool, but what people forget to include in their pics is the experience. What was the experience like? I'm sure it was far greater than the cars going around the circuit. Show us that also!
