Another super close pan, around Druids at Brands Hatch.

From the technical aspect, this is an excellent shot. The sharpness of the image at 1/60 at an effective 400mm focal length is impressive. But the only evidence of movement, the usual desired result of panning, is a small portion of the wheel spokes blurred. The sharpness of the shot, and that there is so little identifiable background visible, might lead the viewer to mistake this for a high shutter speed shot.

Please understand that I believe the image is excellent. But I find the lack of the desired effect of panning, that being imparting the sense of speed and movement, quite distracting. My suggestion would be to pull back and include more of the blurred background to let the viewer experience the motion and action.

Just my $0.02 worth, YMMV. :-)

Thanks Larry, a critism raised previously and duly noted. Don't really want to go into the thinking and analysis behind the shot, especially as these show us your best... should be non critical,
"like or dislike.. there is no remark".. Yoda :lol: Sometimes rules are there to be broken, someone says go wider, I zoom in.. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. and life goes on.:-)

Here's another, scuffed leathers and all, bought out the track more to show the blur and more of the rear wheel showing. No crop, just a bit of a rotation.

Whilst the two shots above arguably don't emphasise speed in the way that panning usually does, they are nevertheless great shots and - IMO - there is sufficient blurring to convey movement. In the first, the track surface is overexposed, reducing detail and consequently reducing the blurred detail, but the second is perfect. I would be very happy with both if they were mine.

A point has been raised about pulling back to include more of the surroundings. That would increase the blurring. I agree, but the close-in crop of the riders is a well-used composition and one that I really like.

On the subject of including more of the surroundings, I would add that I often position myself, when panning, so that the background is detailed, colourful and contrasty. This increases the blurring and thus the speed conveyed. Horizontal detail, such as armco barriers, do not provide this in great measure, but verticals will blur much more. Obviously, a uniform field of grass won't blur much at all, just like an expanse of asphalt. The shutter speed has to be decreased even more before satisfactory blurring is achieved.

Achieving a nice panned look is probably easiest at the track, when the subject is a pedigree racing vehicle, with firm suspension. The smooth track and hard suspension produce little if any vertical movement, which can ruin the shot. Conversely, a subject that also has vertical movement, such as a rally car on a forest track or - even worse - a rider on a horse, is much harder. I have taken many such shots where I have nailed everything just right, but some small vertical movement has ruined the sharpness.

Not entirely sure how that can be construed as Motorsport.


It never ceases to amaze me how dense intelligent people are.
I’ve had more intelligent conversations with lobotomised amoebas.
