I'm finally getting decent at panning... (cycling)

... but please let me know if there's anything obvious I should be doing better.







That last one caught me completely off-guard - he's a machine on the bike and was back before I was ready, and had to just yank up the camera and click a few frames.  Which actually makes me more pleased with that result.

I think you have every right to be pleased with those. Nice images and you chose the background well as well.

I would be very pleased if I could do panning that well.

And your choices of shutter speeds appear to have done a good job at maintaining a sense of motion.

Well, thanks for the compliments!  I started panning with 1/100, but that wasn't enough, so I had to drop through 1/80 to 1/60, and discovered it goes much better at a longer range.  And resist my temptation to do it in portrait orientation for some reason.  And not pick a terrible background.  I assume there must still be things I'm missing...

You really are good at panning, LonelyBoy. Did it come with practice and experience or did you learn it from a resource of some kind?

Good job! Love to see some road races as well as the Tris.
That's it, I'm switching to Rollei
