still going through my F1 pics culled over 4000 down to 1250 sharp shots
so overall pretty happy with that rate of sharp to oof/blurry given no IS.....
next is going through those 1250 and picking out my favs  :P

I really like this one

If tamron had put a panning mode VC on this baby it would be one amazing lens
there is certainly no disputing its optical capability is first class

I tried some panning shots today. Gear used was 5D Mark III and the 70-200 II. I shot a reasonable number of images today and these are two of the few shots that I liked. The first shot is at ISO 50, 70mm, f/2.8 at 1/50s. The second shot is at ISO 100, 70mm, f/2.8 and 1/60s. The lens was in IS Mode II.
Issues -
1) I wasn't able to generate a more streaking background despite shutter speeds which I thought were reasonably low;
2) Dropping the shutter speed lower resulted in an extremely poor hit rate;
Please suggest as to how can I improve my panning technique.
Thanks in advance,
Regards ... J.R.

Love the second shot !

Can't add anything else to what has been said.

I tried a few shots last night with my daughter.  I was mostly shooting at 1/40.  I started getting the hang of it as she rode along the road, but that wasn't exciting enough for her so she went for a much bumpier, grassy hill.  Here are a couple of my favorites:

I tried getting some of my son on a pogo stick, that's much harder to get right :(

Lovely shots here!

+1 for putting distance between the subject and the background. Also helps if the background has smaller elements like leaves (and not cars...).

Thanks for the suggestions rpt. I'll keep the tips in mind when I shoot this weekend. Will revert with pics  :)

My son got to ride a four-wheeler for the first time this weekend.  After I got bored of getting standard shots as he drove by, I decided to try a few panning shots.  I only took a couple, but this one was by far my favorite.

I used a 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II w/ 1.4x extender, with the IS in mode 2.

The shot looks way more exciting than the standard frozen-motion shots.

Welcome to CR, yurophoto.

I really like some of those panning shots you did, well done. You seem to have really captured the speed and adrenalin.

Agreed, some very nice shots, particularly like the first one. Very well done and welcome to CR.

try using a longer lens, the background will cover more distance in the same amount of time. or like mentioned above get the subject further from the background, same thing basically.

Thank you! I was shooting for vitalmtb.com so I did not want every shot to look the same and only had very little time to set up for the shots as the riders were coming down the hill at full race pace. The sides of the trail were covered in poison oak brush so I could not get to far back unfortunately. Much appreciated tho, Im gonna keep at it!

This one looks absolutely amazing! Did you use a second curtain flash or is it just panning?
