I kept meaning to come back to this...hopefully the OP will come back too...that is a very cool shot, it looks like it would be good for a TV commercial...but then I start to wonder, how close to the track are you, it seems like you are pretty close, and pretty low and un-protected...while its a cool shot, unless I am missing something, its also pretty risky to get that shot.

Thanks!

And yeah...I was entirely too close and entirely unprotected. The cars weren't going all that fast (it's a slow corner, and I was positioned on the inside of it)...But that's hardly an excuse for me being somewhat dangerous. All the guys really liked those shots of their cars...Had to tell them that I won't be doing them again, as it scared the bejiggers out of me :D

I still do wide-angle pans sometimes though...Just from much further away. They like them too. Even if I'm breaking the "rule" of "don't take pictures from the side of uncompressed suspension", they're some of my favorite shots.

Good idea to keep yourself safe.

Didn't know there was a rule about taking pics on the unloaded side...thats no fun...I will have to stick to breaking that rule.

Well...Cars DO generally look better when the suspension is compressed. 3 inches of gap between the fender and the tire only looks good on a 4x4 for the most part.

But I've been digging what you can do inside the corner...One, because you don't see it often, and two, because it's safer :D

its even better if there is 3 or 4 inches of air under the tires! Turn 3 at Road Atlanta is good for that.

lol...that would be GREAT!

But I have nowhere like that to shoot. MAYBE Hallett, but I have no connection up there to get me in a decent shooting spot. All I have is my local autox course/track.

Jason, yes it was taken at Phoenix International Raceway. My seats were about 20 ft from the fence mid-way through turn one.

OK, I'll do this one because I see a lot of stuff I end up with in photos that bugs me.

Its behind the car, not a rear shot, not a side shot, just slightly behind. That feels (to me) like a shot that was almost missed, not prepared for. And just the car going away a little always bugged me.

There is more space behind the car than in front of it in the frame. I like when a car has more room in front, it gives a sense of the car is going to where the empty space is, instead of showing here the car was.

Sorry if that seems verbose and harsh. Its a good capture, good pan, pretty sharp, time of day is good, overall white ballance might be warmer than I would go but its nice light. .

Yes, It was almost a missed shot, this car NEVER wheelies and hadn't done one all yr and at this one particular race about 330' down track he got up on the back bumper so it was a little past me and caught me a little off guard. It was also what caused him to end a 12 race winning streak he had going.

Haha, yeah, a wheel stand that big with no bars will probably cause you to lift a wee little haha.

I really like the first one for the fact that it's a nice pan, but sharp and clear enough to see the rider's face. I personally would prefer a different crop that perhaps is wider that shows a bit more of the track.

The second is just fantastic.
