My second attempt at capturing the action at a drag strip...
How did I do?

ISO 100 - Aperture between 11 and 22 (opened the aperture as the sun went down).

I love 'em. Very nicely done!

What shutter speeds were you using? And were you just panning with the car to make everything else "move"? I'd be really anxious to learn how you did this as I am at the strip frequently. Haven't been out this year, yet... :(

I just checked the settings for the last pic (above) of the motorbike.
F/13 1/80s ISO 100 at 140mm.
I used AI Servo mode to focus and yes, I panned with the bike to keep it in focus. I love these type of shots, but I find them a challenge, especially with a f/13 (or larger)....but I walked away with 3 shots (the last three above) that I am really happy with....makes it all worth while.

Excellent panning shots! The shot of the Mazda RX8 really stands out to me - tack sharp and the lighting on it all seem to work perfectly together. These would be a great addition to the Panning thread here https://photography-on-the.net …read.php?t=3251​81&page=56

Thanks for the tips! I guess the biggest thing to make sure of is that AI Servo is on while panning with the car moving.

good shots! panning is not easy and takes practice.

my only critique would be to rotate the ones that look as though the cars are driving down a hill (1&2 especially).
