Most places I want to visit are in the uk. Just wish you could guarantee the weather!

 

Dry with thin cloud, that's what you need.

 

I hate it when I am out with the camera on very bright sunny day and people say "good day for photographs", it 8l00dy well isn't, its one of the worst days for photographs.

A first attempt at motorsport yesterday. A good opportunity to experiment with settings and what worked and what didn't, I learned loads having the entire day to wonder around the course, try different vantages points and enjoy mixing my love of bikes & photography!

Yes, well done. Hebden is pretty close to the border of the dark side. ;)

Good first effort, in the first and last the space is on the wrong sidde of the bike, they are driving out of frame.

 

The third has great timing, but I'd crop it tighter removing the road at the bottom, its a bit unbalanced with the tight crop at the top and all that space at the bottom.

Don't listen to him!  Don't listen to him!

 

(Okay, do.  A bit.  But not too much.)

 

For mine, the last one works best because the sweep and texture of the road and the white of the eyes give an indication of the speed and determination going on.


Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

Cheers for the feedback both.

 

Shot 1 - agree entirely with the framing comments Padge.

 

Shot 2 - the chairs are a bit more difficult to frame with being wider, but I'm fairly happy with how well this works from this angle.

 

Shot 3 - this is the only one that I have actually cropped, although not from the top as I only just got the rider in frame. He was the only one that was getting that sort of height over the jump, so I wsa struggling to capture it. I see what you mean with the road at the bottom Padge, however I felt that it needed a bit of road to land on so to speak. A better capture at the original point would have helped however, I see what you are getting at and this one in particular is one of the lessons to learn and work on. It really needed to be shot in portrait, but I was using my monopod and hadn't thought to take my ball head off my tripod to enable this. Also a lesson learned.

 

Shot 4 - I see what you mean again Padge, however this to me is a slightly different one to the first, as much more over to the left of the shot would have meant more of a messy and distracting background or a squarer crop which I'm not sure would have worked. Again, portrait may have worked better due to the limited amount of scope for manouvre at that particular vantage point, again, lessons learned.

 

I took about 400 shots in all, which I've whittled down to just under 200 that are reasonably sharp. A few more of the better ones are on my flickr account. I'm going to the Manx GP/Classic TT at the end of August, so this was all good experience for then, where I hope to get plenty of good shots and technique practise, utilising what I learned on Saturday. :D
