    A few from the track on Sunday and with a rider coming off but he wasn't hurt. Although one rider did come off the other side of the track and he broke his arm and the bone was poking through his skin and a ambulance was called. _MG_4967.jpg _MG_4968.jpg IMG_9281.jpg IMG_9284.jpg IMG_9322.jpg

    G'day Paul

    What's that old saying about 'boys will be boys' ....

    I find your images are a good example of action-on-the-run with both enough blur to confirm the action and enough sharpness for the bikers to see themselves clearly

    All done well as far as I can see

    G.Day Phil, thankyou for your comment, it's always nice to get a comment. These were taken at 160sec, I did try 125th but too much camera shake.

    Good action shots Paul. Just a shame that the frame wasn't bigger in #2.
    Good set.

    Oops!

    Good panning there. Was thinking the third was my favourite but I like the 4th with the sharpness, the rear wheel vanishing in the dust and the front just off the ground.

    Thanks John, sometimes things like that happen and you don't have time to frame properly. You'll have to come over one Sunday and have a go.

    Thanks it makes a change from the other work I do and always a challenge.

    Thanks Ed still got to get my panning technique honed.

    Where I live we have a lot of the less costly motor sports on.
    I rode a bike well before I was allowed to on the streets so bikes are always an interest.
    And this is even now when I can't ride another one again. But do enjoy watching what the kids of today do make what I was doing look like beginners class.
    Well done on being in a good position.

    Thanks Arthur. I was a 4 year old on a little bike out for the first time yesterday and he loved it, so enjoyable too see young kids riding outside instead of being at home watching tv or playing computer games.

    Are these full size, or did you crop? I'm looking at the the right side of each and thinking I would prefer a composition with the empty space in front of the bike rather than behind.

    It feels awkward to me when the bike is running into the edge if the frame - loses the drama...

    I wanted to show the dust trails behind the riders to show the drama and speed, yes they are cropped.

    Fair enough. Would be interested to see another crop adding more space to the right , so make them wider?

    There you go one without a crop. I get your point though. Any input is good thankyou Dusty.

    Nice set Paul and good panning technique, they look rather clean for Moto x.

    Thanks Steve, yes very clean but very dusty and dry conditions for weeks. Hope you're well.

    Great set Paul, shot something similar a while back and really struggled to get the wheel blur and sharp rider as well as you have.

    Thanks Ryan, I did look at your photos awhile back but did'nt get around to commenting sorry. To get the wheel blur I've found that you need between 1/60 and 250 shutter speed will do it. It also helps knowing the track so well so for example on tight bends I use 1/160th and on straights 250 th with the camera set on A1 servo
