    Lovely pics! I'd be seriously chuffed to have the same opportunity.

    I like Number 9, beautiful.

    On the first three (and others) one end of the car is blurred : what's the cause of that?
    Not a fault, I'm just interested.

    We've had lovely weather here ... almost warm.

    Not sure why they are blurred at one end but all my shots were. I am sure someone on here will answer that one?

    Just been through some more of your photos on flickr, some really nice images there. A couple of things though - on quite a few I notice at full size there is some funny noise going on (very minor - just wondering if you've sharpened these up) I know the 5D 3 is pretty good with standard noise at these ISOs...also noticed you've stopped down your lens quite a bit and upped the ISO - in my experience its better to do the reverse especially on slow pans - just wondering why? (DOF?) not a criticism just interested :)


    Also the blur difference is down to paralax shift I believe - someone will correct me if not - the car coming towards you at slow shutter speed means the front is moving at a different rate than the middle (focal point) in relation to the camera as it approaches you.

    Not at all, I think some are really successful... I was under the impression that the f4 lens you were using is pretty good wide open - so id suggest opening up the aperture a bit and dropping the iso to get the images nice and smooth. The depth of field might suffer a bit but I think pans like this benefit from a bit of blur as long as you can keep focus on the driver. more art than magazine :) more interesting!!!

    Nice Catalunya should be a touch warmer than Silverstone - i'm heading there for the 6th time in succession hopefully no drowning this year. Take any of my advice with a pinch of salt i'm definitely not an authority on this :) just opinionated

    Great set, crisp and vibrant shots.

    It's something to do with the front and back of the car not being equal distance away from the lens at both ends and therefore the sensor sees the front and back of the car moving at different speeds, enough so to cause slight blur.

    Hard to explain with getting mathsy or drawing a diagram.

    I like these. #2,#3 & #8 are my favourites although #3 might benefit from not being quite so central in the frame. Great opportunity, bet you can't wait to go back.

    Great stuff! Love those.

    Out of interest, what shutter speed are you using on number 4? I'm starting to see a lot of these and I think I'll be having an experiment!

    Cheers! They've come out very nicely, so I imagine there's a fair bit of ability involved as well. ;)

    Great set of images the colours are really vibrant. What have you used to edit them with and what effects. Can't wait for the new season to start!

    1, 7 and 11 in that order for me - I'm not a fan of F1 but these 'almost' make me change my mind, bravo sir!
