    I was practicing in my front yard and came up with this. Fun for a Sunday afternoon.

    Wow good catch.

    Take alot of time practicing doesn't it.

    I know I can blow a hundred photos and maybe get a few sometimes. Thats the name of the game i guess.

    Nice snatch. it's good practice especially with a long lens. if you look at the door seam you can see a bit of front to back motion remaining. but hey, still a good shot and great pan.
  4. Good way to practise, would never have thought of that!!

    thx all

    You're right, Greg. It wasn't a perfect catch, but it was fun learning to set the shutter speed about right to freeze the car and blur the back and foreground. I also just liked the effect, catching the car between the hill in my yard and the colorful trees in the next.

    thanks, all for your comments.

  6. Fun thing to do and one that I do myself from time to time. Good job.

    Looks great Tom! Perfect or not, you've really isolated the car against the background - and it's got a perfect feeling of motion.

    I was looking at the door seam though, and the line around the gas cap, and they show some motion, but the front of the door, and the fender seam behind the headlight are perfectly still. Now I'm trying to model what conditions might have caused that, and I;m gonna guess the car was turning?
