I'm surprised there's been no comments yet. I know nothing about motorsport photography but I really like these particularly the third one

They look pretty good to me. Maybe a slower shutter speed to show some motion in the wheels would be good for you to try,

Nice shots. Agree with photos guy about shutter speed. Some motion blur is a good thing for some shots

I would also say that you might want to think a little more about shutter speeds. Generally I would like to either see a slower speed used so that there is some blur in the wheels, and maybe even some background blur as you pan. if though there is a large amount of dirt being thrown up behind the car/bike and it is possible to bring that all in tight then a very fast shutter speed to totally freeze the motion really works well.

I would say that in none of your shots did you really have a big enough spray of dirt to make that second option really work, so I would be looking for a slower shutter speed in all of these shots. It would be really nice if the EXIF data were included in the images, so that we could actually see where you were with your settings.

These are sharp and well composed but as previous posters have said, there is no impression of speed. Of the four, #1 and #4 are better with the dirt being kicked up, but honestly, #2 and #3 could have been shots of stationary objects.
If you can master the technique of blurring the background while keeping the vehicle sharp, you will get a better photo. Mind you, I still have not mastered this and I discard more photos than I keep, but when you get the one, you will know it ... and it is well worth it.

Aah...ya kinda forgot to blur the dirt/dust.

I forgot to do a lot of stuff I usually do. It was just a quick edit at work. ߘ

Because motorcycles generally just sit there sideways on a hill with the rider's boot picked up? If you can't tell that #2 is obviously moving at a decent pace then you must be looking at a completely different photo than I am. Ii think the only way it could have been better (#2) is if there was dirt being kicked up behind.

Likewise on #3, the front suspension is loaded up and the car is nosing around the corner with dirt coming off that tire. You can clearly tell that it is cornering and not just sitting there.

As far as 1 and 4, there is a huge impression of speed, both with the amount of dirt being kicked up, and also with the loaded up suspension on the vehicle.

Since the OP asked for CC, I agree with some of the others, shutter speed could be decreased in future shoots, to show more motion blur. Otherwise the shots seem to have been well-exposed, and overall the shots are not bad, not spectacular - which is fine :-). Keep shooting, take lots of shots, and be selective to narrow things down to only your best shots - I find this winnowing process to be the hardest part, oft-times. It's hard to be your own editor.

I think the last photo is my fave among the bunch.


I'm mainly here for the snacks
