    Spent last weekend down in Grafton, was bloody cold but a lot of fun. The stateround of the NSW Hillclimb championship was run on the Mountainview Hillclimb track, it was a 2 day event and we camped out with the hillclimb folk overnight. Saturday I thought I would do some panning practice because I had been getting a bit lazy with that lately getting a lot of front and rear shots of the cars mostly. This is what I came up with over the weekend, c&c would be very much appreciated.

    #8, 14 and 28, top notch.

    Got some great shots there mate, some of the backgrounds on the panning shots can be a little painful on the eye though, bit sharp and jaggy in some rather than being more smooth.

    edit: Sorry that was really my only critique, great shots all round mate :thumbup:

    Awesome shots man. Simply brilliant. I really like this one, what was the story? Was the back stepping out just at the right time?

    Thanks for the comments, makes it worthwhile putting the time in if people enjoy the work in the end.

    There is a fairly steep bit with an offcamber righthander as the cars come onto the track, the car got very sideway through the corner and I was just lucky to get the shot.

    Monopod's tend to get in the way for me so I usually shoot freehand, I am only shooting with a 100-400L anyway, it's not that heavy. :D

    Be still my beating heard - the Escort brings back memories of my first car, canary yellow, 72 model. A mate's comment was it was "3 years after the moon landing".

    So true. :thumbup:

    Wow, thanks again for all the nice comments :thumbup:

    Cheers for that, glad you enjoy my work, number 16 was taken while we were camping at the track overnight, the shot was taken around the camp fire with a few others (they're all on our website) the bright lines in the foreground are sparks flying up towards the sky.

    What sort of post processing did you do on 28 it sets off the image well?

    Just had a look there, was quite simple really:

    LR2.2

    - Selentium Tone Preset
    - Convert back from grey scale
    - Bump saturation a lil
    - Bump darks, light and highlights a little
    - Mask and sharpen
    - Noise reduction both colour and luminance
