Good stuff - real shame about the shadows in #1, that would be an awesome shot if you can get rid of them;)

Nice work. I like the Ducati shot, I think it works well IMO. I agree with Big Ant in regards to removing the shadow on the 1st Doc shot and might even be worth a try on the Stoner shot also. Liked the website. Hope that's harsh enough!:lol:

I dont' know if you've seen this set, but I think you'd agree the difference in the impact of the pictures are significant.

Taken at the same event no less.

An Amazing Set, and there is more punch to those photos, they also have some angles ill never achieve without accreditation, i had enough trouble getting the 100-400 into the track let along getting accreditation for such an event, but thanks for the link :) Having shot all these from general admission areas and competed for space with plenty of other people trying to shoot as well, ill give it another go when i get a chance to head back, but it was my first attempt at shooting bikes as well as being my first real outing with the 100-400. I would have loved to have been on the other side of the fence with a prime of some sort just to see what i could have achieved, but maybe another event

lol I was looking at a photo before and noticed at least 3 grey lenses in the background.... I was surprised there were so many people with fairly decent DSLR's at the track with big lenses

Saturday was the day i shot the most, got a few good ones Friday too.

I shot Sunday, mainly because that was the reason i was there, but no where near as many as i had on the previous two days, will throw up Friday and Sunday photos tonight, i got some ok ones on Sunday on the small victory lap that Stoner had.

I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, Def heading back!
