    I like them all Jim, the first four images are particularly nice because of the isolation of just one or two racers. The fifth image is nice...but how cool if he were facing the camera. The remaining images, shot at a slower shutter speed, are sweet. I realize that maintaining clear backgrounds is tough depending on where on the course you are shooting from. You did very well Jim, thanks for sharing your shots, I really enjoyed viewing them.
     
  3. Nice colors, nice sharpness and good perspectives. Great job!
     
  4. Jim,
    I really like the clarity, contrast, and detail in these shots, and that the backgrounds are all OOF enough that they don't detract from the subject at all. Not necessarily easy with the bright overhead sunlight You didn't miss a thing here, except that you probably didn't get muddy did you? :)
     
  5. Nice shots Jim!

    Thanks, Frank. yes, some of the backgrounds were cluttered. but nothing like the quad drag races I shot on Saturday at the local fairgrounds. :biggrin: this is one of the 'clean' shots;

    Thanks, Diane. PM sent.
     
  9. Nice job Jim they look good I liek the slower shutter pseeds in events liek this to give the tires the look of movement so they arent frozen. Well done

    Thanks, Mike. I picked up my D200 yesterday and I plan to give it a try out at the local MX on Sunday.
