Not finished processing all of my GT Open shots yet but here's just a few. As it's approaching the end of the season I'll probably take my time with the rest.

Love the light/processing on that McLaren shot (y)
I never used to use a monopod as I found it too restrictive but I'm using one more and more now. Works better for longer stuff though, I still wouldn't use one for say standing in a pit straight grandstand where I'm having to rotate through...
For motorsport you’re probably best starting in Tv mode which allows you to choose the shutter speed. The camera will then adjust the aperture automatically (and possibly ISO depending on your setup)
Depends on what you’re shooting but for WEC(or ELMS) GTE cars hammering it on the straights you...
Pretty good for a first time. No.2 is nice and sharp. In the last one if there's any room for maneuver in the crop I'd be tempted to pull the car back in the frame so the eye is drawn more to the point of sharpness (headlight).
A few shots from my first trip to Brands back at the start of the month. Critique appreciated as always.
1. Had to get a couple in at Druids on my first trip so here's the TF Sport Vantage

Thanks Mark, I'd hazard a guess that when it comes to panning below a certain speed most people fall into the 'try-er but mostly fail-er' category. We only ever get to see the shots that work. (Or perhaps I'm just trying to make myself feel better)
Thanks Ben, yes 'behind the fence'. 1, 3, and 5 were through the fence, so much easier when the sun is not out at Silverstone. Plenty of British GT shots written off on the Sunday when the sun came out.
Thanks I was pleased with the way #3 turned out.
Thanks, they don't all look like that at 1/30. My success at 1/30 or 1/40 is improving but it's still not very high. I only tend to dip down to 1/30 when I'm confident I'll already have some decent shots at 1/125 or faster. There's still a...
Thanks, haha yes I nearly made a comment about the angles when posting. I've previously tried to level as many out as possible but now I find myself tilting most of them on purpose to maintain a style. I think my style is being dictated more and more by attempts to create impact on Instagram...
A few of my shots from Blancpain and British GT at Silverstone combined. Please let me know what you think, especially if you don't like them or you think they're a bit meah.

Thanks for the thorough reply Andrew, it’s appreciated.
I had a feeling the answer might be along those lines. I guess I’ll just keep practising and maybe set myself some different challenges for each event.
For me the initial 'wow' is because it is both different to many other's work and it portrays British GT well for me. The appreciation for the work that's gone into it comes after that. If people don't take photography seriously (someone who's viewing it elsewhere) they may still get that...
I'm with @snerkler. Whilst I understand your view point, for me it's all about the final image.
As long as it's not being sold as something it's not I don't see the problem. No.1 doesn't even come to close to pretending to be out of camera (and I'd guess the intention was actually the...
I've been getting more involved with motorsport photography this year attending more meetings (by my standards) and spending more time viewing other people's work and it's raising some questions for me as to what's required from someone with media accreditation.
It's not the normal...
Well the reviews generally seem to be better this time round ( not on here obviously [emoji23]). Didn’t know what to expect but apart from Flintoff being a bit forced in the studio (sure that will improve with a little time) I was pretty impressed.
More than one laugh out loud moment for me...
Pffft, average ;)
No.7 is a bit special. The shot of Rick and the M6 also stand out for me.
Only as I think you asked on IG, I'm not a massive fan of the colour toning on the Scarlett shot, I think in this case it's taken the lambo's green too far off and as a result it looks a bit vintage...
Bit of a mixed day for me. Didn't achieve what I wanted to, mainly due to a complete lack of planning and too much time messing about with low shutter speeds. That said quite happy with a few of the shots I did get. As usual C&C welcomed.
