Great shots!

How about a little background on what you used (lens/speeds/camera/technique,etc.) to make these great captures. I feel I can learn something here!

Thanks. OK, here goes.

Camera D2x. Most bodies can do this.

Lens, Nikon 80-400 VR. Most lenses can do this.

VR off

1/100 to 1/125 second

Shutter priority to hold the speed

AF-C, and I use the AF-ON button to to enable focus tracking. That way I just release the button if I need to take a shot with the focus locked.

ISO set so the aperature was above F8. That lens needs to be pampered a bit so I never use VR while panning, and try to keep it above F 7.1.

Area metering, and I try to remember to dial in +.3 EV when white cars pass by. And usually forget to reset it back.

Lots and lots of shots. Nothing beats practice for panning.

The EXIF info is in the shots if you have the Opanda plugin.

Hope this helps.

Did I mention practice, practice, practice.
