My First Attempt at a trackday.

Not so keen on the tight crops and the way the background kind of cuts through the rider.Was any more background blur possible to avoid that look.I'm sure the owners will love them.The poster is neatly done!

I am still learning high speed panning, so I am sure that I could have had more blur. I shot it at a little high speed then I should have to insure the bike were sharp, need to pan more and slow the shutter a touch.

I find Bikes harder to pan than cars.They are a smaller target to catch and tend to accelerate faster and the keeper rate goes down on the shots taken.Still, great when you get the right shutter speed to match the moving object,giving some decent blur.

Nice shots considering it was your first track day. Mind me asking what shutter speed you was using?

You've got some great images there. I understand why you've watermarked them, but it really distracts viewers. Also one thing I like to see with motorsport or bike shots is a bit of space in front of the subject for it to "drive" into if you know what I mean. Leaving that space in front also does not crowd the subject as much.

Nice first try! The camera and sun angle for the bike on the left side of your poster is ideal. The shots from the inside of the corner with the sun coming from mostly behind are not as strong. Keep at it!

Nice work first time out and agree on bike 269 nice pic plus you can see the riders eyes.

Had my first attempt at bike few weeks back and really enjoyed it much more than i thought even though i am a car man.

Most of my shots were pans as due to fencing could not get the head on shots that you have with some of those.

Agree with above on giving the bike some room to run into but i also like the tighter cropped shots aswell have done this with some of mine shows the bike and rider in more detail.
