So it's an endless discussion about the 'right' panning technique. IMO it's not important which shutter speed you're using to make a real good panning - and it's really not important to quote a 12 years old first posting. Panning under 1/60 might be interesting but it also is a fetish which suffers from the sharpness of a picture. So I have seen in this thread many 1/60 which ain't worth to talk about them and also brilliant ones. Let's enjoy the pictures without all this wisecracking.

Not sure. That is from my screen saver file...I don't have the original images online anymore. They are all archived. I stopped shooting for ALMS when they shut down so probably at the end. Maybe somewhere between 2008 and 2012 - leaning towards closer to 2008.

Is there something in particular you were looking for?

John -

As to whether certain shots are technically panning or not - that is far from why I jumped in here. Some of the shots here are very much panning. Some less so. Some not at all. The vast majority are good motorsport images. Got not no problem with them. But if an editor were to ask for a panned shot of "x", some of these would not be what they were expecting. Good shots... but not what would have been expected.

The intent of this whole thread when started back in 2007 was to show your best shot at 1/60 or slower - read page 1.

"So lets see yours..... can u beat 60th?"

I didn't just pull a number out of thin air... it was the original challenge that got this whole thing going. If others want to post other stuff.... fine, doesn't worry me. Not sure whey all the rage here when that is the theme of this thread. Obviously the intent of the thread morphed over time.

Hopefully we can put a nail in the coffin in this line of discussion..... didn't mean to interrupt you all's fun. Cheers.

With all due respect, what was written in the opening post of this thread has no bearing whatsoever on the blanket statement that you made in post No. 8596, “Most shots over 1/60th aren't panning….” You are implying that any panning shot taken at a greater shutter speed than 1/60 is not a panning shot, regardless of whether or not it is posted in this thread or elsewhere. You made no reference to the opening post when you wrote that.
Even the National Geographic article that you linked to states that there is no correct shutter speed for panning:

Pick a good shutter speed. This is important; however, there is no “correct” shutter speed for panning.

Which bit of that do you not understand?

My apologies.... I was totally incorrect. what the intent of this thread was some time ago has no relevance what so ever. The extent of the blur has no relevance to the quality of the panning what so ever either.

Please post away .... I will no longer "police" this lovely conversation.

Please .... again.... my deepest apologies and deepest regrets for chiming in.

Wish this had turned out better but the driver added a little bounce which didn't help - these are from a sequence of about 14 - panning about half came out ok.

Never got a chance to shoot Supercar... guess there is still a chance. Got to shoot touring car in the UK... back in the day with Volvo. That was fun. Love the series that are still based on real production cars. Nice job at 1/20th. You feel the speed.
