Here are a couple of barns I shot last year.

Here are two blue hour photos I took in Rome in 2011. Castel Sant'Angelo (Canon 60D w/ EF-S 17-55 lens; ISO 400; f/8; & 1.6 sec); and Trevi Fountain (same camera/lens; ISO 400; f/3.5; 1/13 sec). The Castel Sant'Angelo shot benefited from the railing of a bridge as a makeshift tripod; the Trevi Fountain shot was handheld.

Another thing that helps is, assuming you can get the right position, shooting the cars as they enter a turn. They brake going into the turn so they're going slower, giving you a better chance to get the shot. They'll accelerate in the turn itself, of course, as they get back up to speed. But I've had good luck shooting cars as they head into the turn, or as they're just starting to accelerate once they're in the turn.

It's not F1, but here are two shots I took at the 2011 Petit LeMans race at Road Atlanta that illustrate the effect of different shutter speeds. Both are taken with my 7D and 70-200 at 81mm; both shots are ISO 200. The first shot was f/5.6 and 1/800 sec. The second shot was f/11 and 1/200 sec. You can see the difference the slower speed makes - and if I'd had better technique, I'd have taken the shutter speed even slower to get more background blur. If you're really good, you might be able to take it down to 1/60 or slower and still get acceptable sharpness. That's one good thing about digital instead of film: you can shoot and shoot and shoot, and then delete the bad shots!

The first shot is looking down my driveway in January. The second shot is my back deck (compare with Surapon's at the beginning of this thread). The third shot is my neighborhood last February - some things don't change - like winter in Michigan.

Hi Pugshot.
Like the smoke on the water effect, a different take on the idea, very nice with the narrow field of view keeps the eye on the detail of the subject. What exposure, any other kit, ND filter?

Cheers Graham.

Thanks - here's the data: f/22 (probably overkill); 0.8 seconds; ISO 100; I don't recall using a ND filter, but I'm pretty sure I was using a circular polarizer (and a tripod, of course!).

Really nice cormorant shot, Mackguyver! Sorry about the pollution, but it does make for a pretty color setting.

Figured I'd bring this thread back to life. Here are couple of my pug, Aiko, both lit with a 600ex-rt and 43" umbrella.

Particularly given my "handle," I have to compliment you on your charming pug shots.  :)
